Fly -Twisted Sketch #122 Twist Twine

Twisted Sketches just unveiled it's Wednesday sketch and the following layout is my take on it. I squeezed my Scraps Of Darkness September Kit-Passages for one last layout. Thank goodness there was lots of "white space" with this sketch or I may not have made it-lol!
This layout was one of those fun layouts for me, because it features some photos of my son, Draven when he was 4 years old, preparing for his first time on an airplane. We were heading to West Palm Beach and normally we would have driven, but we were trying to save time, and decided to fly. The top photo shows Draven with his luggage at check in, and the bottom show him giving the thumbs up as we prepared to take off.

I started with a black card stock from the add on and then started layering in leftover strips of kit pp that I punched, machine sewed, distressed, and inked.

I then took some chipboard bracket frames and decorated them with the Bo Bunny Rub Ons from the Romance Add On, some of the crowns that I had punched out of the bottom layers and some Tim Holtz metal pieces from my stash. I then took some of the Vintage metal pieces from the kit that looked like handles and popped them on. I then took some Dusty Attic chain, painted it with Glitter Glam and "hung" the photos to one another and to the layout.

Next, I took the cork piece from the kit and printed out a transparent globe onto transparency film and adhered it to the cork. I then painted some chipboard letters spelling "fly" and attached them to the globe.

I cut out a bunch of the little tags from one of the kit pps, punched them and then tied twine strings through each of them for the "twist". I then stamped my long title "Draven Flies For The First Time" down the side with some clear stamps and white Staz On ink.

To finish the layout up I took some of the Teresa Collins Brads from the Romance Add On, set them, then wound twine around them and then used some little travel stickers that I had in my stash to complete the look. One of the little stickers offered me a place to journal the date and destination on, which made it very personal for me.

Thanks for joining me for my take on the Twisted Sketches layout! I so appreciate you taking the time for a visit! I gotta fly on out of here, so until the next time toodles! ~Renea
