After the rejection of some of my work I was feeling a little down. I was going to have a few days off from
Scrapbooking, and just make some cards until... I saw the Challenge on Once Upon A...Sketch.
And I thought, the best thing to do when you fall off a bike is get back on and try again...well i wasnt riding a bike but you get it..
This is the sketch below:
And here is my take on the sketch:
I used the song By Aaliyah as my title because i thought it was fitting for how I felt, and the journaling was a note to myself to remember I AM AWESOME! (cos as most of you that know me...I am :P )
The Papers I used were My Minds Eye - Meadowlark - Disk
My Minds Eye - Lush - Black Floral Tiles
This Black Pearly Swirl comes from Flourish With a Bling, it was a large flourish so I cut it to fit just perfect...
You cant see it very well in this pic...but can you see the dragonfly??? I had to use it just love my dragonflies!
close up of my title, I used some read Glitter to make the 'Try Again' stand out in the Title
Chipboard letters are from Kaiser and the tiny alphas are from Adorn-it ( i use these alphas alot!)
And this wonderful pretty birdcage comes from Kutalicious, They are 2 lovely ladies that make these wonderful pieces and the best part is they are local and you can find their products in my shop - Fancy That Scrapbooking
here is a close up of my journaling spot which is a must on a challenge you do for Once upon a..Sketch!
I have folded the red ribbon back and forth to create this lovely effect and border around my journaling tag!
This is a technique I rarely use, but am going to start using alot more now since I was at Creative Block last week at Printblocks! I did the Core-dinations class and discovered a whole new way of using their cardstock! Here I have run my cardstock through My Sizzix Bigshot with an embossing folder and then I have used sand paper to rub the embossed area back to show the core colour of the cardstock, simple and effective..Love it!
And yep you dont even have to ask...here it is..
Hope you all have a wonderful rest of the week..I know I will be tomorrow Ipswich Show Day here in Ippy so I am taking the boys to Seaworld....hoping to get some really good pics to scrap :)
Thanks for Looking
