*OUAS February Sketch*

It's time for a new challenge over at Once Upon A Sketch, and this one is awesome! And the design team has done such amazing projects, you have to go have a look! This is my take on the challenge:

The theme was "do all things with love" and this is a picture of our daughter and her hubby with their dogs, the picture is special because they had them done right after finding out they were expecting their first baby this June!!! The journaling is around the circle and in the journaling block.

The title and the flowers and birds are from Imaginarium Designs chipboard. They are embossed with Suzy West WOW embossing powsders.

Here you see some of the detail of the journaling and little pearl dots I did with Ranger liquid pearls.

The pretty ribbon is from Really Reasonable Ribbon and the stick pin is from Nik Nax by Ariana's Etsy shop. The little blooms are my older "Got Flowers" Prima blooms layered with a pearl center. I made the bow with the Craft-Dee BowZ tool. All journaline and pen work done with Kuretake Zig markers.

Here are more close ups of the title and blooms.

I even used some of my older Prima bling for some of the centers on the larger blooms! The papers are from GCD.

Here is the information for the challenge, you have plenty of time to play along, and the prizes are AWESOME! Please check it out HERE. And thank you so much for stopping by, I really appreciate it!

Theme : LOVE


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.
