The Twist

This is my Sketchy Thursday Weekly Challenge based on this sketch.



It is also my Practical Scrappers weekly challenge which required the use of decorative scissors. I used decorative scissors to make the scallops on the green paper. Almost forgot I had them. I like the result - I plan to use them again real soon.

Note: the center picture has a circle cut out of the center which is then popped up to emphasize the twisting motion. I then put dots (with a paint pen) around the circle to empahsize the circle and to tie in the dots along the blue border.

Thanks for looking!
