Holidays are the focus over at Once Upon A...Sketch this time. Well, unfortunately, long holidays OS are a bit difficult since DH has been not so well. BUT we did get the chance to hive off to Tassy for a 'short break' earlier this month. With my new camera. Now, that was dangerous! However, DH has taken this shot with my old camera [nothing wrong with it, it just hasn't all the whizz-bang features!!!] & out of 10 pics I presented to him, he chose this shot for me to scrap to represent our hol. It's of Cataract Gorge, Launceston ~ a marvelous area to explore, with LOTS of historic homes, which we both love.
Above is the sketch we had to follow & as, these days, we've got to take that 'Window of Opportunity' for hol's when it presents itself, that's what I've titled my LO.... & following THAT theme, I thought I'd do a window on my LO. I actually had a full blown gathered curtain going at one stage, but that was slightly OTT!!!!!
Anyway, here's my LO. All the flowers have been handmade by me. And I stitched the edge of the curtain 'pelmet' after making a pattern with my hole punch jabber thingy [it's actually a little screwdriver that DH has sharpened the point so it's really jabby:):)].
Lots of other stitching, stamping, misting, distressing....the usual:):):)
|Flower cluster with chippy etc at bottom of LO|
|I've hidden my journalling under the pelmet, which lifts up like a hinge...hope you can manage to read this:)|
|Stitching on the top edge of the pelmet....|
|Flowers I made for the top of the photo...|
it does seem like a dream [see piccy]... but it's real:)
Take care, now, hope your weather is as blue sky perfect as ours is:):)
Cheers, Lizzy H
