September's Story Starter©️ collection with the theme of Simple gave me the chance to talk about our progress on decluttering our life. I matched this with a sketch from May 2013 (#124) which has lots of layers and space for journalling as well as plenty of white space.
My Counterfeit Kit Challenge August kit, Alpine, was perfect for this because of the many neutrals that were in the kit and which I was able to select to match my theme.
It's not easy to see in these photos but instead of the paint swashes featured on the original sketch, I misted through a stencil before building my layers on top. It's a subtle effect but adds interest and texture to the overall layout.
