MMSC8 - Cosmos Digi

Good Morning! We are at week number 8 in the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge! Two months! My, how time flies when you are having fun!

You know I love flowers and butterflies, so of course, I used my Cosmos Digi for this week's sketch. I also dusted off an old technique I haven't used in a while...Paper Tole. I used my Cosmos Digi pictured below, printed it 4 times but made each one a little smaller than the first. So not only did I layer them, I added extra dimension by reducing the size as I got to the center of the flower. Just like nature does! ;)


Take a look at this sketch! It's a tuffy, but you know what? Just break it down piece by piece, layer it up and really, it's not hard at all! You can do this! Give it a try and play along with us this week at Midnight Madness! We love to visit your blogs and see your talents!

Hi Sue,
What a great idea to keep resizing the digital image to get dimension, I bet you started something! Beautiful flower, I bet it is from your store! Great colors.
