Once upon a sketch... Friends


OUASin haasteena oli tällä kertaa ystävä. Viime tinkaan jäi osallistuminen, mutta ystävä oli kyllä koko ajan tiedossa. Lähestyin aihetta lasten pehmolelujen kautta. Tämän sivun tein isomman tytön "Yllekitistä", neulotusta pehmolelusta, jonka tein jokunen vuosi sitten. Piilotettu journaling aiheesta löytyy kuvan takaa ja siinä kerrotaan mm. kuinka pehmolelu on tärkeä ja kuinka iloinen äiti on, että itse tehty neulekissa päätyi kaveriksi.

Taustalla on ihana ColorConspiracyn puukuvioinen paperi. Roiskin sen päälle värjättyä liimaa. Päälle tein tiiliseinää musteella ja sabluunalla ja lisäsinpä taustalle vielä embossausta ja mustalla musteella tehtyjä palloja.

Sivun värit nappasin kuvasta - keltaista ja siniturkoosia. Oli muuten aikamoinen etsiminen noissa sinisävyisissä papereissa, todella moni turkoosipaperi kun oli liian vihreä sävyltään. Luonnoksen pyöreäksi elementiksi nappasin kakkupaperin. 

Koristeena on nappeja, SODAliciouksen puunuolia, tarroja ja värjätty ruusu. Luonnoksessa olleet boordit tein Fiskarsin leikkurilla. Viimeiseksi lisäsin sivuun vielä riipustelua valkoisella geelikynällä.

The topic in the OUAS challenge blog was this time "Friend". I knew what I was going to do for the challenge but only had the time to do the page now. But still in time for the challenge, too!

The title is "Yllekiti" which means "Woollen Kitty". It's a knitted soft toy I made for my older daughter some years ago (she's now 3 years) and now the kitty is one of the toys that follow her everywhere. The journaling is hidden behind the photo in a tag and it's about how important that toy is and how happy I am that something I have made for her has become so important. 

The background is made in a paper by ColorConspiracy. First I splashed some coloured glue (yes, you read right, glue, like Erikeeper) there and then added some inks through stencils. The hound's tooth pattern is embossed.

I chose the colours from the photo. It was suprisingly hard to find blueish turquoise, almost all of my turquoise papers were too green. I used a doily for the round element in the sketch.

The embellishments include buttons, wooden embellishments from SODAlicious, some stickers and a coloured rose. The borders are made with punch by Fiskars. To finish the layout, I drew some doodles around the papers with white gelly roll.
