Challenge 34

This week the lovely ladies of Team A had this fun sketch to play with thanks to the fabulous Camilla:


Cheryl W:

A journey can be many things. I wanted to pay homage to life and living, to enjoying and experiencing the journey as we are on it, not just after it's finished. What better way than to use bright, bold colour splashes and happiness?


I adored this sketch and thought it was perfect to use this photo for it. This was day one of our family trip and we stopped in at The Chinese Gardens of Friendship, such a beautiful peaceful place to be. We could have spent all day there and we all a little sad about having to leave, we'll definately be returning there one day!

This is a page where I played with layers. I actually don't do many layers in my pages at all and I wanted to branch out. It didn't really turn out like I imagined and that is why I love mists and inks. Just add some when you don't like something. If it's still not right you can add more. Of course you can go overboard but that's why you should do it little by little ... like when you season food!

I flipped the sketch on its side and created a page with autumn colors and leaves. I used my Cricut Expression to cute out all the leaves and inked them up with coordinating Distress Inks. The flourished are handmade with acrylic and liquid pearls.

Instantly, the squares in the sketch reminded me of pressed tin. So, I decided to go crazy with metal! I used eyelets, wire, and did tons of embossing with gold and silver powder. The awesome wings and Cogs are chippies from ScrapFX...they were so much fun to alter and grunge up! TFL!!

The squares in the sketch really made me want to break into my giant tag stash...
