MME Sketch Challenge

As most of you who read this blog will know one of my all time favourite manufacturers is MME and when I saw the sketch challenge over on their blog I had to give it a go. My pile of MME papers is huge so I had plenty to choose from to create my page, I ended up using a combination of some of the Stella and Rose ranges (think they have been  my all time fave from them so far)
This was the sketch, you can find all the details here.

I really enjoyed putting this page entitled "you are such a blessing" together, lots of  MME papers are perfect for distressing because of the texture and weight. I didn't need to use any embellishments other than a few brads as I hand cut lots of flowers from the patterned paper and layered them up to embellish my page.


To give the flowers a more 3d effect I laid each one onto a soft spongy surface and pressed the rubber end of a pencil into the middle which made each petal curl up. On the larger flowers and leaves I slightly creased each petal down the centre.
