My Monster and Me

Happy Monday!...and we have a new sketch for you over at MDS Monday.  I'm the host this week, and, as you can see from the sketch below, I've changed mine up a bit.  When you play along, please feel free to use any punch shape, or stamped image where the hexagons are.

For this page, celebrating Elliot growing into his monster, I have used the chevron stamp from "Pencil It In"  to reproduce the afghan that I knit to go with the monster.  In order to create some texture on the chevron pieces, I used the Chevron Decorative Overlay - changed it to white - and left the background of the page white so that the rest of the overlay blended into the background.  I learned that trick from Heather Summers in a MDS2 class I took with her last summer.  It's a great way to add texture to punched images.

Here's the sketch...
Hope you play along with us this week at MDS Monday.

Thanks for stopping by.
