Hello! It has taken a couple of days, but I have completed a layout! I did this one for this month's challenge at Once Upon A... Sketch. I have been following this challenge blog for a while, but this is the first time I've played along. Each month they have a sketch and a journaling prompt. The focus is on documenting your stories on your scrapbook pages. This month's prompt was "The start of something new," and below is the sketch.
I decided to make a page for my "Book of Me" about our transition to a family of 6. My "Book of Me" is 8x8, so I had the challenge of working in this less familiar format. The papers I used are old Bo Bunny from a pad I got at Scrapfest several years ago.
Because of the smaller format, I decided to do my journaling on a hidden tag. It reads:
Wow! 4 kids! As we begin this new chapter of our family, I am a bit nervous about being a good mom to all of you. I know one of the most important things I can do is ask God for grace. I love you all very much!
I bought some DIY Thickers a week or so ago to use with my collection of glitter, and that's what I used for the 6 in my title. I used some coarse glitter first, and then filled in the gaps with some blue extra fine glitter. The current weekly challenge at Club CK is to use multiple fonts for your title, which is a technique I enjoy and one I used here. I had a lot of fun playing with different inks on the flowers and canvas accents. I used some spray inks on the flowers and used distress inks on the canvas vines.
Thanks for stopping by!
