This layout was a great excuse to pull out the Stitched Flags Die Set. The big blag is perfect for the sketch! For my focal point - the circle in the sketch - I placed three colorful eggs. Remember that the sketch is just for reference, a circle does not have to be a circle.
I felt like the eggs were disappearing into the pattern paper - so I did my usual trick - adding some solids to break up the patterns. The border cut from hot pink, and white doily break up the designs enough for the eggs and their patterns to hold their own.I adhered the eggs with adhesive foam tape so they pop up a bit. The strip of twine helps break things up too and draw the eye around the design.
The finishing touch? A sprinkle of sequins. I used some with a wood grain print - again because they are neutral and help break up the design.
