Can you believe it's already March? That means another Once Upon a Sketch reveal and I have used some gorgeous Meg's Garden papers from the new "Ode to a Summer's Day" collection, plus the brand new Dusty Attic chipboard floral corners. All that combined with a doily and a few Green Tara flowers for a shabbylicious finish. These papers have such a beautiful pattern on them that you don't need to do much to achieve a polished layout. I glued everything down using a variety of Helmar adhesives (details at the end of this post).

The OUAS theme this month is "What does your weekend look like?". For me... when I am not scrapping, I am outdoors with my children. Since the papers are girlie, I decided to focus on my daughter for this layout. The journaling on the back of my layout reads:
"Simple moments playing outside with you is one of the greatest joys of my weekend"
Here is a peek at the OUAS challenge. I hope you can play along this month! Check out the amazing DT reveal this month and the terrific prizes up for grabs!
Here is a close-up of the DA chipboard. I primed it with gesso and then used Faber-Castell gelatos to achieve a shabby waxy crayon look. Without priming, gelatos offer full coverage - a lot like what inking or painting looks like. I wanted a bit of the white resist look that gesso provides. I also used gelatos (mixed with water) to paint the white flower centers yellow.
