Keeping The Best Sketch #61

Originally, I found this Keeping The Best sketch quite challenging, but once I decided on what papers to use, and how I was going to use them on the page with a stencil that matched a pattern on one of the papers, it all started to come together rather nicely. I consider it one of my favorite background pieces.  I used the Blue Fern Studios Circle Motif chipboard to implement the circular design on the sketch.  The papers are from Creative Imaginations --some old and some new collections.

Sadly, this is my last post designing for Keeping The Best.  My mom fell down on mother's day and dislocated two shoulders and broke one of her arms.  I will be taking care of her during her convalescence, so you won't be seeing much posting from me until she starts to improve.
