OUAS August Challenge (using Swirlydoos July kit and Helmar Adhesives)

This is a layout I made using the beautiful August sketch challenge at Once Upon a Sketch. I created it using the remaining papers and a few embellies from my July Swirlydoos "The Paper Doll" kit featuring KaiserCraft papers (The Lakehouse collection). That's me and my daughter when she was a baby. I had no make-up and didn't do my hair and I still love the photo, LOL. The hidden journaling reads "It's the little moments with you at the park and beach that make my summer fun."


The theme this month is "Seasons" - I obviously chose summer. Here is the beautiful sketch to accompany the theme...

Here is a close-up detail of the Dusty Attic chipboard in the kit. I wanted it to look like stone and created this look with gesso and chalk inks and my fingers to apply it all.

Be sure to enter the OUAS challenge this month - check out the blog for details and ALL the gorgeous prizes up for grabs too! Please note that I used Helmar premium craft glue for all the paper layers, the adhesive runner for the photo and 450 quick dry for the embellishments.
