This month Meg's Garden is sponsoring the Challenge site "Once Upon A Sketch" to celebrate the release of its brand new paper collection designed by the very talented Denise Ann Bodey called "Ode to a Summer's Day".
Here is the challenge:
The month of February is the month we celebrate St Valentine's Day here in Australia and in many parts of the world. Love takes on many forms..relationship love, parental love etc etc. So let's think about what the above quote can mean and how you can interpret it on a layout. You are free to scrap about any kind of love you wish however you like based on the following sketch.
Ideas for journalling: love for your partner, family , parents ,siblings , children, work, students, craft, music, extra curricular activities. Whatever it is that you connect LOVE with.
Your layout must incorporate this theme and the sketch below.
Please make sure that we see some sort of journalling on your layouts and please tell us where your journalling is . You are allowed to journal in any language but please tell us where on your page we will find your journalling. Remember journalling has to be a bit more than a title, or a generic comment. Hidden journalling is perfectly fine.
My take on the challenge:
For this fabulous challenge I chose to scrapbook about the love for my daughter. I have hidden my journalling (5 reasons why I love her) in Meg's Garden's Test Tube, I cut 5 test strips and wrote my journalling on them using Distress Ink Pen in Scattered Straw.
Here is my journalling:
The background circle was handstitched with yellow thread, I also handstitched a white border around the layout.Imaginarium Designs Chipboard title "Love You" and Heart piece covered in Picket Fence Distress Stain with a thin layer of Croco Crackle paint in white:
More Imaginarium Designs Chipboard here a flourish that I cut in half to create a fancy border for my banner - added some stitched crosses to it -and both got the same treatment as the title. The background was created with 'Twinkle Yellow" Glimmermist and Pink Paislee mask, also added La Blanche script stamp using Stampin Up "Barely Banana":
