MEMORY BLOOMS... - Scrap Our Stash May Sketch

Thursday, May 22, 2014

Hi everyone!  So glad you are here today.
I am sharing my take on the May Sketch Challenge at Scrap Our Stash.

Here is the awesome sketch from Rochelle that us probably my favorite sketch at SOS.
I think this sketch is SO inspiring!  You must create your own background by using
cardstock, a stencil and/or mask and using some form of medium (ink, paint, etc) from your
stash.  Make sure to describe how you created your background in your blog post for the entry! 

I used every medium I could get my hands on...stencils with mist, stencils with modeling paste, stencils
with Distress Ink, large background stamps and watercolor!!  I got a little carried away, but the photos are so powerful with the peachy iris against the dark background, that I hope it wasn't too overpowering.

I had three photos to go along with the sketch, but decided to do my journaling on a piece of vellum on top
of the middle photo.  I had a lot to write and I didn't want to take away from the background or title.

This was a special LO for me because this iris was from a bulb my mother gave to me from her
dearest friends' garden, after she died.  One if the strongest ties they had, as friends,
was their mutual love of gardening.  These bulbs were moved to my mother's garden,
then to her new home, closer to us, then divided for me.  It is a piece of a special
memory, the foundation of gardening to divide and share, and is a joy to see bloom...
