I tried to follow the sketch, I have used it vertically instead of horizontally, and the other part of the challenge was that the journalling had to be hand written.
This was a great challenge for me..........I rarely if ever journal on my pages, not sure why,maybe because I am so involved with the art/design process, and I know the story so well in my head, I don't feel anything needs to be written: but of course it does, it's so important for the future. "Expression" can take on many forms, and when you have images as well as words, the story is much more complete. Enough of my psycho-analysing guff........This is quite a simple page for me. I have used minimal elements,and minimal colour : I loved this photo, deliberately washed out, the pastel colours and the black. Once Upon A Sketch is a new challenge site; its simple, has a great DT, its different and it has made me think more about what makes up a "meaningful" scrapbook page, so thanks girls.
