Jillibean Soup Sketch

I've only participating in sketches for a couple of months now.  I had always believed that in order to create a truely meaningful LO, you had to go with flow. . .follow your creative heart.  Well, I think that I may have been wrong.  I have learned that you can follow a map, changing directions -or detouring- a little bit. . .and create LO's that are just as wonderful as if you had started from scratch. 
This week I participated in a sketch that can be found on the Jillibean Soup blog.  Here's how it turned out:

CS:  Bazzill
DP:  Jillibean Soup (Old World Cabbage Stew:  caraway seeds / Soup Staples:  olive sugar)
Ribbon, Bird Stamps, Journaling Sprout, Cardstock Stickers & Brown Button: Jillibean Soup
Ink:  StazOn
Other:  Floss (DMC), Pinking Scissors (Fiskars), Blue Buttons and Rustic Thread (Papertrey Ink), and Burlap

That's it for now.  : )  I know you are probably getting a little 'used to' seeing the JBS Olive Sugar and Caraway Seeds papers. . . .they are two of my favorites. . .but I'm almost out.  So, you can look forward to the projects I create today having a much different look.  : )

Thanks so much for taking a peek! 

love, lisa
