"Creativity" - *Once Upon A...Sketch March 1st*


March 1st Challenge

Journalling Criteria/Theme:
All About Me!

The focus of your journalling and the theme of your layout has to be based on YOU and something/s that you are really good at. Don't be shy! We are all good at something as small or as big as it might be.

Ideas for journallingbeing a good mum, cooking, talking, understanding people, organising, cleaning, gardening, studying, computers, fashion, exercising, scrapbooking, good at my job, maths, languages, writing , drawing, painting, photography, running, craft, sewing. Maybe you can talk about an aspect of your personality..your sensitivity, your 6th sense, your patience, your strength or bravery, your ability to stay positive. 

Remember that you are allowed to also create a card or altered project based on this sketch and theme and instead of the journalling criteria you need to use a quote.

You MUST combine our journalling criteria with this sketch..

And my take on the sketch...
 

As you might have noticed, I haven't followed the sketch 100% but the sketch is always given to inspire you!

I have used lots of Imaginarium designs on this:





I have either painted them with acrylic paints or with glimmer glam!

A few close ups...





Materials used:

Flowers: Webster's pages, Prima, Petaloo
Sticker Letters: Websters pages
Chipboard letters and embellishments: Imaginarium Designs
Glimmer mist & Glimmer glam: Tattered Angels
Bling: Websters pages
Resin window: Prima
Stitching: Sew easy
Acrylic paint: Ranger dabbers

Η λεπτομέρεια με το παντζούρι είναι εκπληκτική! Όπως βέβαια και όλα τα υπόλοιπα. Δε χορταίνεις να τη χαζεύεις! Πράγματι, σ' αυτό που κάνεις είσαι η καλύτερη!

Η φωτογραφία είναι απλά υπεροχη! Νομίζω ότι πρέπει να τη χρησιμοποιείς συχνότερα!
Όσο για τη σύνθεση, τα WP και εσύ πάτε πακετο. Δεν νομίζω να τα χειρίζεται κάποια άλλη καλύτερα από εσένα στην Ελλάδα. Ειλικρινά.

Katerina said...

Θα πω μόνο ότι αυτή η φωτογραφία από το πρώτο crop είναι θεική! Όλα τα άλλα τα είπαν οι προλαλήσασες και με κάλυψαν απόλυτα!
