One of my goals for the layout was to make it look like ropes a monkey would swing from so I cut the banners and pieced them together. I fussy cut a little monkey and dangled him from one of the banners. I added bit of bling in different patterns on the two banners.
My favorite part of the layout is the frame I made. I adhered my strips of paper and then I laid down some mesh and painted over it with yellow paint. I removed the mesh and this was the effect I got. Once dried, I outlined it with black and white pen.
And here's the sketch. As I mentioned, I didn't use a circle photo. A sketch is for inspiration but does not have to be followed to the "T". The key is to use it as your starting point and to go from there.
