Once Upon A...Sketch ~ November 2014
G'day, my scrappy friends ~ time to unveil my LO for this month's OUA...S challenge. Here's the criteria for this month:
Journalling Theme: "Inspiration/I am inspired by etc..."
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!
One of the scrappers who I tend to have a fair bit in common with, scrappy-wise, & who ALWAYS inspires me AND who I've met IRL is Sarah Groen. This photo was apparently just waiting for this opportunity to be scrapped!
And so, in honour of Sarah, I thought of all the thing she likes - & that I have in my stash 'cos I like them too....& created this:
Oh, MAAAAN....did I 'treat' the bg to a pile of Stuff! I like masks - as does Sarah....I KNOW she uses her sunrays one a lot....that's the one I started with. Six later, plust some gelatoes....it was a bit chaotic. Sort of went a tad overboard....so, out came the gesso....which toned it down nicely....& since it was WET, I added some gold embossing powder. Naturally!
I really love how Sarah inks her page edges & uses chevrons..so on they went! The chippy title is also a 'nod' to her...mine came from A2Z Scraplets, thanks to Belinda Scott! You can just see a YUMMY Evalicious clip arrow there, too.
Both of us LOVED the Pink Paislee 'Portfolio' collection. Can you see the word peeking out at the top here? This is NOT scrap paper - it's the cover page for that collection! And we both like washi...so on some of that went, too:)
Sandra S sent me those 'Kiwi' flavoured buttons....so HAD to use that one as Sarah is a New Zealander! The 'here' one is from A Flair for Buttons.....LOOOOVE them!
And just one more closie.....
...this challenge is FABULOUS 'cos 'inspiration' really can come from soooo many sources....such a great thing to scrap about!!!
Hoping to see you join us at OUA...S this month:)
THANKS TO & GOODIES FROM:
