Happy New Year dear blogging friends! Hope you all had a safe and fun New Year's Eve celebration!!! With the beginning of the New Year comes a new sketch over at the monthly Once Upon A Sketch Challenge! Here's the fun sketch we will be playing with all month long along and the theme is "The start of something new..."
I always get a kick out of the surge of members that flock to the gym on or about New Year's Day already dressed up in their brand new tennis shoes and gym outfits! As the days, weeks and months follow, the crowds die down as members "fall off the fitness wagon". I admit, I am addicted to exercise and have been ever since a teenager. Surely I'm wearing away my joints but I love to cook, I love to eat and I'm willing to do what it takes so I can enjoy all of those things :)
This mixed media layout features photos of Scott and I that were taken on top of a mountain named South Mountain that we hike in our backyard. We use to hike this trail a few times a month then it became more like a few times a year. In 2013, we are getting back in the habit of hiking together more often than not.I had a lot of fun layering a variety of textures, techniques and mediums on this layout. Using various Die-namics dies, I made a few rolled flowers such as the one shown below that was made using Die-namics Royal Rose.
and more blooms made using Die-namics Large Royal Rose and Die-namics Royal Rose.
Thanks so much for visiting! For some AMAZING International inspiration and complete details, please refer to the Once Upon A Sketch Challenge blog.
Be Sweet :)
