Sometimes, I just don't have the right embellishments to finish off my page, so instead of going shopping, I turn to creating my own. It is amazing how far a few items already on hand can go to lend an elegance to a very simple page. I began with a Sketchy Thursday design for my page. Diana always has the most wonderful sketches to jump-start my creativity.
The sketch included a flourish, but I did not have one in my stash to match my page. A Bo Bunny flourish sticker worked out perfectly after it was inked with a gold Adirondack Dabber. The alphas were also the wrong the color for my page, so I used the Dabber to give them a nice textural gold color also.
I was further inspired by this wonderful die cut peek-a-boo paper by We R Memory Keepers to create a pinwheel flower to embellish my LO. All I needed was a few small scraps of paper and a brad and my pinwheel made the perfect accent for my page.
