DA Jan Sketch Challenge


Wow, it's been almost a year since I last managed to complete a LO. My personal life has been a bit of a roller coaster ride of late but I'm determined to regain control. One way is to start doing things I love and enjoy which brings me straight to scrapbooking.
I decided to start slow and steady by selecting a sketch challenge to participate in. Dusty Attic is one of my favourite products and I have a ton of their chippies in my stash so I thought that would be the perfect place to start. 
The DA January sketch has lots of layers and I really enjoyed working with it. It also left a lot of room for your own personal interpretation and no specific piece was required so even though my stash is a year old I managed to use plenty of pieces.

Here's a close-up of the flower cluster I made over the DA corner piece using a combination of some Prima florals and mini roses from Iamroses.com. 

For the circle in the sketch I decided to make a floral circle with the DA mini scrolls which I painted white and added some Sage Creative Inspiration Paints to the leaves. I then used a mini rose in the centre of each vine and arranged these in a circle on the LO.

Thanks for having a look and I'm really glad to be back. I hope to complete a lot more LO's over the next few weeks. I may stick to sketch's for the time being until my creative juices are in full swing again. It also seems I have a lot of catching up to do technique wise but I look forward to learning getting my hands dirty again.
