Friday Mash Up (124)


Hey Readers!

Today's post is my entry for The Friday Mashup Challenge 124.  I love this sketch.  The first thing that came to mind was the Thanksgiving set in the new holiday catalog called Harvest of Thanks.  This was one of the first things to go on my wish list.  I loved the font, and I loved the vintage feel of the turkey, it reminded me of my favorite set of Thanksgiving dishes, Johnson Brothers, I would love a set of these some day!
 

On to the sketch:

This was a really fun sketch to work with.  I will definitely use this one again.  Here is my take:

I liked the texture of the burlap and glimmer paper.  Usually I get irritated when my images don't ink just right (or I use markers like I did for this) and don't press hard enough but I love that it gives this a vintagey feel. What do you think?  I'll post a supply list at the bottom.

I had book club last night-we discussed The End of Your Life Book Club by Will Schable, I loved the book and a couple of the other ladies did, too.  The others didn't care for the book itself  but found aspects of it good.  We are reading The Lacuna by Barbara Kingsolver for September.  

Hope your Tuesday is a good one!  Thanks for stopping in!
