This is a photo that I have wanted to scrap for a long time. It's my daughter holding my niece and it brings me so much happiness to see them together, because I don't get to see her very much.
The new challenge at "Once Upon A... Sketch" was the perfect opportunity to create a page freezing this precious moment. The theme this month is Mum: I have a few special people in my life that I have a very maternal connection with and my niece is one that I wish I had.
Here's what I used to make this page.
Basic Grey-What's Up Paper Collection
I filled the clothes line with scanned paper from Basic Grey -What's up Collection
to learn how to do this, see my tutorial here. The video shows how to fill a font but it's the same idea. You first want to take the shape and ungroup it, it you need to ungroup it further, you can go to Options> Release compound path. This allows you to fill the shape with different patterns. For this clothesline shape I did the base in a black print and filled the little details with various prints and solid colors fills.
Here's a look at the Sketch for this month.
We would like you to create a layout and interpret the theme "Mum" however you like based on the following sketch. You can journal as little or as much as you like, but your layout must incorporate this theme and the sketch.
Ideas for journaling: you as a mother, your role as a working/stay-at-home mum, sacrifices/benefits of being a mum, one day in your life as a mum, how your life has changed since being a mum, a tribute to your own mum, grandmother, guardian or someone you consider as close as your mum, your relationship with your mum or your daughter, one trait you have take from your mum, your desire to be a mum, your feelings on motherhood, what does it mean to be a mum?, what kind of mum do you want to be? , Mother's Day celebrations/traditions, your favorite Mother's Day gift given/receive etc..
