Sketchy Thursdays ~ Learn

Well it's that time of the week where once again Sketchy Thursdays have produced a gorgeous sketch that has motivated me to scrap. I really had fun with this sketch & after fiddling around with three smaller versions of my picture, decided to go in a different direction & replace with three small squares of patterned paper instead.

I had fun with this page. I raided some of my newest stash & thoroughly enjoyed my 'me time'. This picture was taken just before Christmas of my oldest son Owen. I was amazed when the proofs came home from school & asked where the photographer had produced such darling angels from, because surely these children on the pictures in front of me couldn't belong to me! Could they?!

I was especially impressed with Owen's portrait as he isn't really much of a smiler when there's a camera present & that is why I chose his to scrap first. I set to work inking, distressing & misting, all a little out of my comfort zone if I'm honest. I also ran the page through my sewing machine in places. Then I added my current faves, pearls & chipboard buttons a title & a couple of journaling strips & voila a layout was born!
