For the 1st November sketch I used some photos of me and Li’l Bro as kids in our back garden. The Grandma has always been keen on bright flowers, so i used both flower prints – fussy cutting some of the larger flowers for the embellishment clusters.
The flower shaped brads were a good match for the colour scheme and provided a way of sketching a circle without adding weight. I pull out my sewing machine – it has a number of fancy stitches which I have never tried, so I thought it was about time I did: I have had the machine since I was 16 after all!
For the 15th November sketch I went with a photo taken at the Eden Project and a green base.
