Welcome to Once Upon A..Sketch' s first birthday blog hop! It is so exciting to have you here and we hope you are inspired along the way to join in the fun and get creative!!You should have arrived here from Sandi's blog,http://scrappingasigo.blogspot.com.au/ but if you haven't you need to go back to the beginning of the list below so you don't miss out.
Our new MONTHLY challenge has just been released! Each Design Team member has created their own layout based on this sketch and journalling criteria and you need to follow the above list to see what they came up with. We would love to see what you create, so please link your project to back at the Once Upon A...Sketch blog. You DO NOT have to participate in the blog hop to enter this challenge.
Here is this month's challenge....
The theme of this challenge is HOME.
We would like you to create a layout and interpret the theme "HOME" 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 this sketch.
NB. Sketch is rotated to the left of original.
Here's my layout...
I took a bit of a different perspective. I thought about lots of ways to scrap "my" home. I thought about scrapping old pics of all the houses I've lived in, my childhood home, or the first house I bought. The house I live in now has never really felt like home. It's the house we live in for this time in our lives. IYKWIM.
In the end, I decided home, to me, is more about the people who surround you than the house you live in. I took this pic of my dh and our kids playing around and it was the perfect symbol of my home.
My journalling says it all.
I love the joy on their faces.
Some beautiful Manor House flowers.
Some chipboard from our wonderful Imaginarium Designs sponsor. Word and top shape.
Some bling from Flourish with a Bling
Lots of texture, masking, stamping, gesso and tissue paper.
