Once Upon A...Sketch has a cool challenge up and I had to play along. (only just a few days left!) So I started begging for photos! Shirley sent me some lovely ones of Kya, and I found I had difficulty just picking ONE! So, new to me is using the collage feature in Picasa. I gave that a whirl and decided to go with a photo block instead of just one like the sketch. I also didn't have a ton of paper and embellishments that were purple, so it worked out well. I had to really stretch to get some pretty flowers on my page and the background purple paper was all I could come up with. Guess I'd better get some more purple stuff in my stash! Especially since it's a good Halloween color.
One of their requirements was journaling on a photo. I had done that prior in Picasa, so that was easy, although finding the right quote took a bit. My quote is a bit tongue in cheek as kids normally do break their parents! It doesn't really fit Kya, the times I've met her she is pretty easy going and just wants to go down the slide a million times on our play set. So, we'll interpret it to mean her sweetness and beauty!
Was really pleased on how this page came together. Not to mention, I have been laying low most evenings just looking at blogs. So, having a burst of power after exercise class was awesome. It started out pretty flat and wasn't making me too happy until I added the "grunge" look with mists and inks. Hope Shirley likes it!
