Let's Get Sketchy - 15 Dec sketch reveal

Hi there!

While I am sitting in my lounge typing this up, Christmas carols are playing in the background (yes, hubby is feeling quite festive) - hard to believe that Christmas is just around the corner ... and then the year is over. SO without further ado ... the last challenge for 2017 at Let's Get Sketchy:

Loved working with this sketch - and I decided to turn it anti-clockwise and work with it like that - and here is my take on the sketch:

As you can see we go back to 2004 - when my daughter was all of 8 years old ... this is one of my favourite photos with my own mom and my daughter. I used a chipboard frame and covered this with paper. The flowers are from 49 Market - alas the paper I have had for a while and cannot recall the name of the range.

Would love to see your take on the sketch - and pop it up over on the Let's Get Sketchy blog.

Have a great Christmas and best wishes for the New Year. I will be back for 1 January - a new year and a new sketch for Let's Get Sketchy......

Till then ...

Let's Get Sketchy - 1 December

And I am back again for another December blog  and this time for the Let's Get Sketchy 1 December reveal. Use a sketch to create a page .. let your imagination run ...

Here is the sketch:

And here is my take on the sketch:
I just love this photo of my daughter ... and I thought that the title Just imagine went well ... because it does look like you would be wondering or imaging something if you were sitting there too ...  :)
I have gone with very subtle colours for this photo .. because I do want create the image of calmness, and thought these colours did that well.

I would love to see your take on the sketch up on the Let's Get Sketchy blog ...

Thanks for popping in :)

White ... with 1 ... December

Hello from sunshine NZ!

And here we are last month of 2017 ..... where has this year gone??
So with the 1st of December - is a new reveal over at White ... with 1. And the perfect colour for the festive season WATERMELON RED ....  and we have a lovely sketch to match!

 And here is my take on the colour and the sketch:

 I turned the sketch and this is what I came up with ... this is a photo of my two precious angels taken about 20 years ago ... they are now both  grown up 21 and 24 year olds! It goes so quickly, doesn't it! And what more perfect than the little red outfit my daughter is wearing and the colour of the month ... 
Here I have just done some spraying an rubbed on some red chalk in the background. I then stamped down the one side and added two strips of washi tape. Added to this is the paper and I used a punch for the middle white card stock, and put a ribbon over this. The title is from some Thickers I had in my stash.

Thanks for popping in to look. Would love to see your take on the challenge on the White ... with 1 blog - the sketch is optional only, but your white and watermelon red is a must...  

See ya soon!
