Oh wow I am sitting in my office with so much energy looking at the time - thinking where did March come from, having filled every moment of the weekend & just feeling so fulfilled. Been up since before 6am after so few hours sleep & its 11:30pm now and still buzzing... So many ideas whirling through my brain - with a busy day again tomorrow.
With March here I want to share this months Challenge found at Sketchy Boards Challenge on Facebook. I saw the Red umbrellas in the photo, the heart & background dots in the sketch.
I took inspiration from what I saw...
I will be honest Red is not my strong point but I gave it my best shot & do I love what the final double page spread turned out to be...
I made a double page layout as I had 2 photos that were 5x8 and really putting those two photos on one page just took up way too much room. So I had a play around to start with on this beautiful photo of our eldest girl taken years ago. I literally do just play & see how things end up looking in the end - I don't know, I don't usually struggle, its just a art thing I suppose.
I love working with colours & design.
I did enjoy the end result so much that I decided to work on another page that was almost mirror image, just because I love this photo between Grandma & Granddaughter... Times like these are so fleeting & once they are gone they are gone. I wanted to capture that forever & as a double page spread I have it.
Journalling is yet to come for these pages... Thinking I might just write it on the back so as not to distract from what I have tried to create, that focal point on the subject in the photo.
May your week wherever you are in the world be looking up & finding time for those you love...cherish every moment even those quickly disappeared ones. Get your craft out & get to work as these memories are for those within in our lives & part of their future that come from the past.
