Well I have been extremely busy today - trying to get February's Once Upon A..Sketch Challenge completed!! And so here I am. The journalling theme this month is "Totally Addicted To...". My immediate thought was my family and then I turned and found my eldest daughter sitting with me in the car taking "Selfies". Yes - this is a regular occurrence in our house. Sometimes Ashlea even coaxes her younger sister into a photo or two. I have used the Sketch provided by the talented Nadia and completed the layout in a Mixed Media format with lots of paints, mists, stencils and stamping.
This is my take on the sketch and journalling theme.
And some close-ups...........
Lots of Prima Flowers ......all dusted with paints and gesso.
I added journalling to the layout in strips of patterned papers. The journalling reads :
Ashlea, your compulsion to take daily self portraits is ever growing - becoming a teenager!!! xx
Memory Maze chipboard heart - painted crackled and accented then mounted.
I used a couple of new stamps which I absolutely fell head over heels in love with.
Stampers Anonymous - Tim Holtz Collection,
and Crafty Individuals - Crackle.
Both were used with acrylic paint and stamped randomly. I also stamped a portion and embossed it in silver.
A materials list has been listed below for your convenience.
I hope you have enjoyed your visit here. If you would like to play hop along to the Once Upon A...Sketch blog.
