Today is reveal day over at Let’s Get Sketchy – hope you’ve already checked out the amazing pages over there!! It’s not my team’s week to contribute a layout but I decided to play along anyway. Here’s the sketch we were all working with.
And here’s what I came up with.
I’m still madly making a layout every day in October for the ScrapHappy Only LOAD challenge and today’s prompt was to use a “rear-view” picture. I had pulled out this picture earlier in LOAD but ultimately discarded it in favour of telling a different story (sorry, can’t remember what that was now – it’s been a long day with my 3 year throwing up and me feeling a bit dodgy too!) It was taken by a dear uncle of mine when he and my Aunt were visiting us way back in 2005. That’s me and my eldest – then barely 1 year old! These pictures are all the more precious to me now as they include my dear Aunt who passed away a couple years ago. Gone but never forgotten! The rest of the photos from that day that my uncle sent to me are still sitting out on my craft table so hopefully I can do something with them soon!
Here are a few close up shots.
My title. The letters were a bit pale for my liking but a quick brush with some brown ink and they worked much better!
The journalling. The yellow word sticker is covering up a different word that didn’t work for this layout. But I liked the colour and shape of the Basic Grey tab so found a workaround!
