Sweden ~Once Upon A ...Sketch~

Hi there!
Happy 1st of November!
It`s a challenge time at Once Upon A ...Sktech  and our talented Nadia Cannizzo prepared another amazing sketch for us to use this fortnight.....

Journalling Criteria: This time you need to journal at least 2 SENTENCES on WHEN you started scrapping and WHY?

You MUST combine our journalling criteria with this sketch.

And this is my take on the sketch......
I used "The Bright Side of Life" collection from The Scrap Cake and I used Manor House Creations flowers. The title Sweden and the year are from Imaginarium Designs chipboard......
I did some masking and stamping on the background. The bird (Prima Marketing)  and the tickets( Tattered Angels)  were also stamped and cut out...
From two flowers (a white and a brown one) I made one....what I did was to tear the leaves apart and then to put them altogether by mixing the colors...The button you see in the center is a gift from Marivic (Berry71Bleu).....Thank you, sweetie!
The anchor was first stamped and then cut out and used as an embellishment....
If you wonder where the template comes from....well, I always keep interesting packages from my kids` toys or board games. This one comes from a board game and I found it pretty good to be used as a mask or template.
I used puffy paint to make all the circles....Puffy paint is fabric paint that you use with heat gun to pop up....

I hope to see you at Once Upon A ...Sketch blog and play along with this awesome sketch this fortnight. We have amazing sponsors and amazing prizes. What about being our next GUEST-DESIGNER?.....All you have to do is to play along and win the challenge :-) For more info and inspiration from all the talented DT girls please visit our blog --------> HERE
