February 1st Challenge
Journalling Criteria/theme: LOVE
February 14th is Valentines Day here in Australia and in many parts of the world. For this challenge we would like you to create a project about the one MALE you love. And we do not mean just your partner or spouse. We mean any male in your life.
Ideas for journalling: You could journal about the love you have for your son, father, grandfather or a special person in your life or any pet.
Remember that you are allowed to also create a card or altered project based on this sketch and instead of the journalling criteria you need to use a quote.
You must combine our journalling criteria/theme with this sketch
I have made a mini album. The image is by Hero Arts and has been printed onto silk, I frayed the edges for a more shabby look but due to poor lighting you cant see it as usual. !I made my rosette using the TH die and the black circle is made from foam rubber and cut with a Marianne die. I chose my dog Bailey as the object of my love as there are three grown up men in this house and didn’t want to have a row on my hands !
Thought I would leave you with a shot of Rosy my other doglett who I know reads my blog and she will be heartbroken if she is left out !
We do hope you will join us this month at Get Creative
and and Once upon a Sketch
why not pop over and check out the outstanding work by both design teams even I was flabbergasted !
Wishing you all a wonderful day
