OUAS - Treasure


I just had enough time to do the 
OUAS challenge for this month 
before we leave for a week of r&r



I turned the sketch on it's side 


'Treasure'

                                                             
                                           As you all know I'm not one to use bright colours
                                          so as expected I went with the pale aqua and tan
                                                         2 of my fav colours togeeher
                                                   The Theme of the challenge is JOURNEY
                                                             as my DD is about to get married
                                             so they  will  be starting a long and happy life
                                                           journey together.
                                         I wrote a letter to DD which is on  a tag and
                                                       stuck it to the back of the lo - it's about
                                                       enjoying the little things in life together






                                                   I've used some 2 crafty chippies -
                             first off coating with some distress paint then spray with TA mist,
                                              On the shrub set I added some embossing in white


                                                 On the title I treated the word in the same as above
                                                            just spray with gold mist


                                 Thanks for popping in for a visit - it's been a little while between posts
                                                     have a great weekend
                                    i t's a beautiful day today after the rain yesterday
                                         so hoping there's some relief today for the people
                                                  in the bush fires areas down south.

                                            Lindy xoxo

What a stunning LO, Lindy!! I just adore your mixed media background and elements as well as your double punched borders!! We've had two of our children marry in the past couple years and it's so wonderful to see them start their journeys together. Thanks for sharing that your special journaling is on the back of your page. Thanks for joining us for the October Once Upon A…Sketch Challenge and for posting your LO on our Facebook page! ~ Blessings, Tracey
