My first project I'd like to share with you is based on this month's sketch, which is absolutely BEAUTIFUL!!!

And here's my take on it.

The little man in the pictures, is my grandson.
I added texture by using structure paste. Just randomly smeared it over my background paper.
Then I cut a circle of fabric and ruffled it a bit in some places. Added some cross stiching using DMC.

Every month you can find a step by step tutorial of one of the DT pages.
This month it was my turn to do the Anatomy of a layout, and this is my page.
You can find the step by step right ----->>>> HERE

Again..... I explain every step I did, and you can find it --->>>>HERE
