OUAS - August

Hi everyone!  Today I have my August DT layout to share for Once Upon a Sketch.  Once again the sketch is beautiful!  Still a little more time to get your entry in to be in the running to win some awesome prizes.  Visit Once Upon A Sketch to see all of the other dt examples.
This months criteria is:
Journalling Theme: "The men in our lives..." 

You are free to interpret our theme ANY WAY you like. It is for your inspiration and this theme word DOES NOT need to be part of your title or journalling. But please make sure your layout is based on the sketch below and includes journalling (hidden journalling is fine). Acceptable journalling is MORE than just a sentence, or generic writing such as date/place etc. It needs to be present and at least 3 lines long. Remember, hidden journalling (under a photo/tag or behind your page) is perfectly fine but please DO let us know in your post where your journalling is! 

Here is my take on the sketch :)

I have used Ocean Melody collection papers by Webster's Pages.  Here I have used a 2 Crafty Chipboard anchor.  Applied Gesso, added cotten and placed in with my layers.

I managed to add my journaling to the top and bottom of the page, where I had free space...hehe :)

Some layers of Prima flowers and shells also.

The 'together' word circle is another 2 Crafty piece.   I have used the pie chart stencil here also.  I love the effect it gives mixing it with Shimmerz.  I snuck in a MME badge too which went perfect with it's triangles.

I love the vellum from this collection.  It's colours are gorgeous!

More vellum to the right and a beautiful day journal spot.

Last shot of all the texture.

Until next time, thanks for visiting.
Hugs xo
