yuck!: A Layout for My Mind's Eye Sketch Challenge for April

This is my layout for the April Sketch Challenge at My Mind's Eye!

Here is the original sketch I worked from:


I loved working with this sketch because I was able to use SO MANY patterned papers in 4 collections of My Mind's Eye products!  I was also able to use several scraps from other projects.  I used My Mind's Eye Follow Your Heart: Be Amazing and My Mind's Eye Follow Your Heart: Be Happy  And probably my all time favorite collection, Lime Twist, can be found in lots of places on my layout.

In addition, I was inspired by the whimsical thread that Ronda added to the top of her photo, and I decided to try my hand at gluing baker's twine to my project from the Lime Twist and Follow Your Heart collections.  I was so pleased with how it turned out!
I used a Martha Stewart liquid glue pen to draw my design, and just tapped the twine down!

The largest banner of tiny print white polka dots on orange is from the 6 x 6 pad of the On the Bright Side: One collection, as are the small banner strips of brown sketched hearts and tiny floral print.
I used a white gel journaling pen from Marvy Uchida to tie in the white in my patterned papers, and in the graph lines of my background pattern. 

I love buttons, and I used 2 of the decorative buttons from the Follow Your Heart accessories, and various others from my large button stash.  And last, my title is from American Crafts thickers!
