Today I'm sharing the close-ups of my last DT page for Once Upon A .. Sketch. Bittersweet as always when it's time to say good bye. It's been a wonderful experience that lasted a bit longer than expected because Nadia had her precious Sofia when OUAS should have had it's DT call for the 2014 term. Thank you to all my beautiful teamies and our boss-lady Nadia :) All the best of luck to the new fabulous team, I know you will have fun!
So first the sketch and theme:
Journalling Theme: "My favorite month"
I flipped the sketch once to the right, like this;
Continuing my stash raiding - have to pat my own shoulder he he!
The base of my page is the muted teal/white polka dot paper from
KaiserCraft's Christmas collection "Just Believe".
On top of it is a paper from Polish UHK Gallery's collection
Layered on this are papers from KaiserCraft's collection "Magnolia Grove",
ledger paper from Glitz and
papers from a couple of collections from
Swedish Pion Design.
My journalling is these lines from a poem that I found on internet.
My heart certainly is in July!
A left over corner of a chippie frame from Dusty Attic.
I painted it in cream acrylic paint before dabbing on
some Shimmerz TextureZ in Tidy Widy.
Then I chalked everything randomly in Ingvild Bolme chalk edgers in
Pastel Blue, Pastel Pink, Pastel Peach, Turquoise Stone
and lastly in Shimmerz Candlelight.
I found this photo on internet. It's taken in the Stockholm archipelago.
Background work in heavy modeling paste,
heavy matte gel medium,
Shimmerz Candlelight digging up the golden
lumps from the bottom of the jar,
soft soft masking with Ingvild Bolme chalks.
Wonderful July, captured in delight.
Beautiful you - thank you so much for your visit!
I will be back on Sunday, 15 Dec
with the close-ups of my page
for the SATW December challenge.
