Pompeii... 34

Mona Pendleton | Sunday, December 1, 2013 @ 9:40 AM | , , , , ,

Hi there! Hope you are having a great weekend! It's time for a new sketch to play with at Once Upon A Sketch. After a fantastic year, my DT term has come to an end so this will be my last post as an official DT member. Thank you Nadia for the wonderful opportunity! This month we ask you to journal about "Your Favorite Month".

Here's the fun sketch that we will be playing with:

My favorite month is June because Scott and I love to take an annual summer vacation. I scrapped a photo of us that was taken while strolling the streets of Pompeii during one of our summer vacations.
I combined a variety of stamps including Winged Beauties and Distressed Background Blocks along with a variety of mists, paint and metallic rubs to create the background.
I embellished with a variety of die cut chipboard and paper die cuts as well as manufactured flowers:
For the title, I adhered a fun light bulb embellishment:

If you would like to take a stroll down a typical ancient Pompeii street, please check out this short video! Enjoy!



Thanks so much for visiting! Please feel free to visit the OUAS blog for some fab inspiration from the DT.
Be Sweet ;)
