OUAS: Date Night


Olen ollut flunssassa ja se on tehokkaasti estänyt luomisen. Nyt kun alkaa olo olla jo parempi, huomaa, että rutiini on rikkoitunut ja sivujen luominen ei onnistu samalla flow:lla kuin aiemmin. Tällaisen räpellyksen sain aikaiseksi Once Upon a Sketch -haasteeseen. Aiheena oli inspiroitua lainauksesta, joka alkoi: "Life is like a camera, just focus on what's important and capture the good times - -". Oman sivun aiheena on "treffit" miehen kanssa, kun kävimme elokuvissa ihan kahdestaan.

Sivun luominen lähti liikkeelle noista kännykällä nappaamistani kuvista, niistä hain sivun värimaailman. 7 Dots Studion ihana paperi oli hiukan liian tumma, joten se sai päälleen gessoa. Tällä kertaa en halunnut tehdä mitään mistailuja sabluunan läpi taustalle, vaan tyydyin piirtelemään liidulla ja roiskemaan mistejä pulloistaan. Niiden päälle rakensin sitten kerrokset kuviopapereista ja koristeista. Haasteen kamerateema vaikutti selkeästi papereiden valintaan ja sivuun eksyikin kamera poikineen. 

Alakuvassa on näkymä tarinointiin, joka löytyy kuvien alla olevasta tagista. Siinä on juttua siitä, miten yhteiset illat ihan kahdestaan on tärkeitä ja mahtavia.

Kivaa alkanutta viikkoa!



I've been fighting the flu for some time and it has stopped me from creating new layouts. Now, that I'm feeling better, you can definately notice, that the routine of creating every day has been broken. The pages don't come to being in the same way and with the same flow than before. But this is what I managed to create for the Once Upon a Sketch challenge. There wasn't a specific topic this time, but a quote which begun: "Life is like a camera, just focus on what's important and capture the good times - -". My page is about those good times, my date night with my husband, just the two of us.

I started with the pictures and looked for the colour scheme there. The pictures are taken with my phone while going to the movies. The lovely paper by 7 Dots Studio was a bit too dark on the whole, so I gave it a little gesso treatment. This time I didn't want to use a stencil for the layout, so I drew with a crayon instead and splashed some mists. On top of those I added a few patterned papers and the embellishments. The camera theme obviously influenced my paper choises as I ended up using different camera patterned papers! 

On top you can see a small sneak of my journaling. It's hidden under the photos in that tag. The journaling is about how the date nights are really important and how they are so great. 

Have a great start to the week!
