I have to say, I am absolutely THRILLED to be on the Once Upon A...Sketch team this year - it's really stretched my scrapping, I think. I really LOOOVED doing this one! I hope you get a chance to join in too...there are some AMAZING prizes as well as a great sketch & prompt!!!
"You are free to interpret our theme ANY WAY you like. It is for your inspiration and this theme word DOES NOT need to be part of your title or journalling. But please make sure your layout is based on the sketch below and includes journalling (hidden journalling is fine). Acceptable journalling is MORE than just a sentence, or generic writing such as date/place etc. It needs to be present and at least 3 lines long. Remember, hidden journalling (under a photo/tag or behind your page) is perfectly fine but please DO let us know in your post where your journalling is!"
And here's my interpretation:
DH is to blame for the journaling here...he said it, I wrote it..with my Purple Pumpkin fave 'toy' my Motex writer!
The paper was plain brown to start with. Had a BALL heat embossing, stamping & splatting with Heidi Swapp color Shine, Dylusions inks, Tattered Angels Glimmer Glaze & Ranger Liquid Pearls.
Even glammed up those cogs with heat embossing & some Distress inks. The PP button had white spots--- I changed them with Distress ink....to suite better! That LOVELY Polaroid frame & the tag below are from MARY B...thank you! Perfect for this challenge:)
And my inside journaling - Mum gave me a calendar  & this was one of the sayings. Nice, I thought:)
Here you can see I've 'stuck' a Greatest View glassine bag on the bottom of my paper layers, so the tag has a 'home'...
Gosh, I LOOOOOVE these Basic Grey 'Carte Postale' papers...I know, they're 'old' now, but THANKYOU Jas S for 'gifting' them my way:):)
Didn't have the right coloured alphas - but these material ones from American Crafts are SOOO easy to alter with Dylusions ink sprays. I just painted the ink on with a brush.
Added a couple of little star brads in around the page too...not sure where this chippy came from...an odd piece, but it works:):)
Hope you enjoyed peeking at this - there is LOOOADS of inspiration over at Once Upon A...Sketch - so pop on over & get inspired!!!!
Cheers, Lizzy H ♥♥♥
