May GDT: Apron Strings

I am soooo excited to be the GDT for the month at Apron Strings Design kits!!! I got to play with the Smaller than a Breadbox kit which has lots of Sassafras Lass Ellie's Tale in it.. and I'm a total Sass girl, so I l LOVED it.... For this page: One technique that I focused on my page is about highlighting shapes and making them stand out.

First and foremost, I inked my square page in black, to add some depth and pop to the edges.

Next, I focused on the half circle from the Sassafras paper. I used my sewing machine to add some circles in between the lines, to add more depth to the circle itself.

Last, I cut out triangles and made them into a banner. To make the triangles stand out, I used my sharpie pen and doodled triangles within the banner, and then also used the sewing machine to add a banner top.

All of these techniques add to the original shapes that are on the layout itself. I also added a spiral flower onto a half cut out diecut....
