Oh My Goodness….half a year already gone….where did that time go? Back to study for me next week so not too much ‘extracurricular’ crafting for a while – that’s the hard part BUT I'm excited because I'm helping to celebrate the 1st challenge over at Sketchy Boards, I was privileged to be asked by Heidi to be a guest designer for Sketchy Boards challenges – they have monthly challenges using a sketch and colour inspiration board or picture.
Here’s the beautiful mood picture and the sketch that Heidi sent me to work with…
I took my inspiration predominantly from the trees which symbolize life and longevity – definitely the case in my ancestry :) And the gorgeous ‘vintage’ brown and teal colours inspired me to choose this photo taken in the early 1920’s, of my paternal great-great-grandparents,
Last week, I was lucky enough to locate another one of my second cousins (in the U.K.) - who kindly sent me this photo and a few others that I haven’t seen before.
