OUAS Feb Challenge - Love

"Do All Things With Love"

This month at Once Upon a Sketch the theme is LOVE as February is the month we celebrate St Valentine's Day here in Australia and in many parts of the world.  Love takes on many forms..relationship love, parental love etc etc. So let's think about what the above quote can mean and how you can interpret it on a layout. You are free to scrap about any kind of love you wish however you like based on the following sketch.

Ideas for journalling:  love for your partner, family, parents ,siblings, children, work, students, craft, music, extra curricular activities.  Whatever it is that you connect LOVE with.

Your layout must incorporate this theme and the sketch below.

Please make sure that we see some sort of journalling on your layouts and please tell us where your journalling is . You are allowed to journal in any language but please tell us where on your page we will find your journalling. Remember journalling has to be a bit more than a title, or a generic comment. Hidden journalling is perfectly fine.

Love You With All My Heart

Even though it is Team B's reveal at OUAS, I decided to create a LO for this month's challenge.  Imaginarium Designs is one of our sponsors and the Design Team were sent a parcel of gorgeous chippies to play with.  I have used some beautiful butterflies and mini peacock feathers which I altered with metallic inks and Viva Precious Metals.

I have also used some pretty organza and gingham ribbons from one of our other sponsors  Scrapbook Fantasies.

Materials Used:  Imaginarium Designs Chipboard, Scrapbook Fantasies ribbon, Websters and MME pp's, paper doilies, Prima Resin emb., Prima mask, Kaisercraft Pearls and Wooden word, October Afternoon alpha stickers, Viva Decor modelling paste and precious metal colour, gesso, paint.

Thanks so much for stopping by.
