New Challenge Time at OUAS!!!


Hi everyone, the new challenge is up at OnceUponASketch. We would love to see all of your share your creativity with us and play along with this challenge. There are LOTS of awesome prizes. Please check out all the prizes and all the details at the OUAS blog. But here are the basics!


 Theme: Mum
We would like you to create a layout and interpret the theme "Mum" however you like based on the following sketch. You can journal as little or as much as you like, but your layout must incorporate this theme and the sketch.


Ideas for journalling: you as a mother, your role as a working/stay-at-home mum, sacrifices/benefits of being a mum, one day in your life as a mum, how your life has changed since being a mum, a tribute to your own mum, grandmother, guardian or someone you consider as close as your mum, your relationship with your mum or your daughter, one trait you have take from your mum, your desire to be a mum, your feelings on motherhood, what does it mean to be a mum?, what kind of mum do you want to be? , Mother's Day celebrations/traditions, your favourite Mother's Day gift given/receive etc..


And here is my take on the challenge.
Here is a closeup of the Imaginarium Designs chippies. I used black ink and black diamond stickles on the clock and on the title I used platinum and pink stickles. The border is done with my Spellbinders Grand Caliber and the Moroccan Accents die.
 I used Prima Alamanac papers and embellishments, along with Prima blooms.
 This is a pretty Prima flourish! Really blingy!!!

I really hope you go check out this fun challenge, we would love to see how you interprete the sketch and the theme!!! And thanks so much for stopping by!!!
