Once Upon A...Sketch

I decided to play along at the gorgeous Nadia's new venture 'Once Upon a Sketch' for their very first challenge. The concept of 'Once Upon a Sketch' is not only to host a sketch challenge, but to also encourage the inclusion of more (and more meaningful) journalling onto layouts. This is definitely something I need to do, so this gave me the perfect shove to journal a recent quote from Brielle I had been meaning to scrap.

Here's my take on the sketch, (please visit Once Upon a Sketch to see the original and hopefully you will play along too)...


I used my Jillibean Soup 'Blossom Soup' pps from Handmade By Suzanne for this LO, and misted a sheet of white cardstock with my new love - Chalkboard Glimmermist *sigh* I love how vibrant the colour is, this one is 'Polka Dot Pink'. I also used it to colour my chipboard flourish...


Instead of spraying the colour on, I took the lid off and used a fine brush to paint a couple of coats on. The colour looked good, but it looked even more rich once I finished it off with a coat of Glossy Accents.

Here is a close-up of the journalling from the LO (cracks me up every time!)...
