Well what a jam packed, scrapping, long weekend I've had! I think I broke my record. I completed 7 layouts and a card! None of which I can reveal just yet except for this one.
Once Upon a Sketch is an awesome challenge that I try to enter at least every second month. I'm not the best at following sketches or at adding journalling to my work so this challenge is really good in stretching my skills! Nadia always creates a fabulous sketch for us to follow and a beautiful theme that really gets the mind thinking. This month it is "The best things in life are often not things". So true.
And I've never entered a 13@rts challenge before but this one sounded like it was right up my alley!
I decided that because it was such a beautiful sunny winters day that I would video the process for this one. The sun comes in my studio window and lights up my table perfectly. I've added it below or you can view it via my You Tube page which you can access easily by clicking the tab at the top of my blog that says "My Tutorials".
Here are some close ups.
I've used some 2Craftry Chipboard, water colour paints, Kaiser Craft tiny dot stamp and some papers from Cocoa and Daisy on this layout.
I really love the way it turned out. It's not like most of my layouts. The colours are a bit bolder than I would normally use but they complimented the photo perfectly.
Thank you for popping in.
