Playing Along with October Afternoon
BLOG which is full of fun challenges, including a 9 to 5 Sketch Challenge (using a sketch made by Jill Sprott).
I didn't have any pictures of my family members that I wanted to use for this challenge, and my kids
flat out refused weren't available for me to take some quick photos, so I decided to create a layout about something I enjoy doing in my spare time (when I am not scrapbooking). What is that, you ask? I'll tell you. It's reading on my Kindle, in my favorite comfy chair, with a hot cup of coffee by my side. It's one of my favorite ways to relax in the evening.
I followed the sketch pretty closely, but I decided to layer my photos and random embellishments on top of the grid pattern - something that seems to be pretty popular right now. I placed pop dots under all three of my photos and a few of my embellies to add dimension.
Journaling was kept simple. A little handwriting that incorporated my title into what I had to say.
And that's it. I am really liking all these "office collections" that are coming out lately. I think for a "real challenge" I may bring a few items back from my office and try to incorporate those into my next layout! How do you feel about these collections? Love them, hate them, or indifferent?
