I adore white space in design. I enjoy empty space. Really, in every facet of life. I enjoy having empty space in my cabinets so I have room to place new things, or room to reorganize without having to empty said cabinets. White space just makes me happy. In design, white space makes me happy. I mean white, white space. A perfectly empty place to rest the eyes.
But the other part of me likes my abundant supply of 6×6 paper. Trying to mesh the two attractions together can stretch my creativity sometimes. I’m pretty stubborn and set in my ways.
For this sketch for My Favorite Things Sketch Challenge #221, I felt I should challenge myself to use patterned paper. I think my favorite part is the foiled vellum. I modified the sketch a bit as it didn’t feel balanced with the butterfly above the sentiment.
Supplies: My Favorite Things (sentiment & sketch, circle die to crop corner), Papertrey Ink (butterfly dies), Simon Says Stamp (circle die, sequin), DCWV (vellum paper), Hero Arts (embossing powder)
