The first page that I want to share with you is from a sketch that I found on 52 sketches...52 weeks. It is her sketch 16 and it was one of the 'possibilities' for the DT submission.
I am really trying to pop out of my bubble and try more techniques. For instance, the grey paper behind the picture, I did not have the actual paper in this shape, so I had to come up with a way to create it. And if you know my style, I cannot free hand. I have no artistic ability that can magicly draw out shapes and have them turn out looking like anything recognizable... :)) I took my cricut and cut two of the shapes that I needed at 11 inches and then traced the shape by piecing them side by side to get the shape I wanted!
For the journaling, I stamped three separate journal pieces and ripped the edges. This is something that I am really trying to get better with. I have not been very good with journaling in the past, and it is a resolution....so far so good!!!
The journaling reads... This is but one moment when time stands still, and I can reflect on how perfect you are. How much my heart has grown every moment spent loving you. And looking forward to every moment to come. I am Blessed!
This was another possible submission for the DT. It was sketch 12, and in this one, I played with a little paper cutting and colors. Like the blue flower...I would have put on a green, white, or pinkish to go with the colors of the page...but I saw this blue and it just kind of worked...still not sure why, but I like it!! :)
