There is a very interesting challenge up at Once Upon A...Sketch that I had to play along with.
February 15th Challenge
Journalling criteria/theme: HOLIDAYS/VACATION
Have you printed out all those photos from your last holiday/vacation or most favourite holiday/vacation? We would LOVE to see them and hear all about it. With the theme of holidays/vacation for this challenge, we would love to hear about: your favourite holiday/vacation of all time or a favourite place you would LOVE to take a holiday in . Or how about the last holiday/vacation you went to? Maybe you have not travelled yet? Then tell us about your DREAM HOLIDAY /VACATION destination.
I try to be pretty good about vacation photos and get scrapped since I forget the details quickly. So really didn't have any past vacations that I wanted to scrap. But I found the concept of where I want to go to be quite interesting.
I could do PAGES AND PAGES on that! I decided to focus on our next big trip we're planning. If not, I'd have been all over the place, literally. THE MAN tells me that we're going to own a huge camper when we're old people and travel. Sounds heavenly to me!
I flipped the awesome sketch that was included sideways so I could make a photo collage work in landscape.
Here is a close up of my journaling. These photos were taken at my Aunt's house when I was little. See her and my uncle down in the corner? I would like to go back to their place at some point as I have great memories of my time there.
Here is another close up of a flower cluster. That one flower in the middle was dyed a while back and I found it during a deep dive in my flower stash. Rooting around in there used up a few things that have been around forever and kept my copper color going.
And, how about this metal scallop? It's really paper, with metal foil tape placed over it, embossed, painted, sanded, inked up and then die cut. I am in LOVE with this process and want to share a tutorial very soon.
Happy Monday and head over to check out their challenge. Still a few days left if you HURRY!
