of year when the weather is grey, wet and not exactly nice. On the other hand it is also a period of preparation. Preparing Damien, Noé and Robin birthdays, getting ready for Saint Nicolas and above all Christmas is just around the corner too. All those things brighten those gloomy days. I decided to play along with the Sunday Sketch at Studio Calico and add some colour to my life. I challenged myself to use things I had at hand's reach! I used my gelatos to create a "sunburst" and worked from that. Now I must say I am not pleased with this layout as I messed up a few things.
- See the brad, I added that to hide some smudged ink.
- I used the wrong glue to glue the vellum hearts down and now it shows.
- Near the BE GOOD rub on, I wanted to stamp a small sentiment, ... well that didn't work out as planned.
- The stamped image JUSTE L'ESSENTIEL is not straight.
It is not as planned but I have learnt to except that I will not be happy with every layout I make and that is okay but it keeps pushing me to create and try new techniques. Everyone in the family likes it as it is colourful and I also managed to use up lots of scraps and cameo die cuts I had lying around.
