Lets get sketchy #3/ 123 Challenge April - Here today


I was feeling very thrifty tonight! I managed to get 2 challenges in one layout and use up alot of offcuts from previous projects! Might have to keep this photo smaller as my layout photography is a little blurry again..... These photos are from a tiny chapel underground in Austria, where my kids lit a candle for their father. The title relates to transience  - both to lighting a candle for loved ones and to the old long abandoned mine where this chapel sat. I used the requirements for 123 Challenge - April and the sketch from Lets get sketchy shown below:



                                                                                             
                                                                                       

For the sketch I used fussy cut church roofs in place of circles and suitcase in place of the large flower. I whitewashed behind the photos with white ink, used duck egg blue to mat all photos and papers and used 'today' in the title.

Papers used were DCWV Once upon a time stack and Kaisercraft Check in stack.
