LO created for Once Upon A Sketch October challenge/ Flying Unicorn

Hi there :)
Today I will share a LO that I did for Once Upon A Sketch October challenge. Being a DT member of the super talented design team at Flying Unicorn, I got the opportunity to create for Nadias amazing sketch and journalling challenge blog this month, and I really enjoyed it! Flying Unicorn is sponsoring her site this month with the Gorgeous October kit Farmer´s Market & Hayrides., so i strongly advice you to jump in to this super fun sketch challenge and play-You have a chance to win it!! And OUAS is such a fun, inspiring and playful place to be playing at :)
Here´s Nadia Cannizzos wonderful sketch

The theme is Journey, and I have written about my youngest sons amazing journey these last two years.
It all started with this lovely gorgeous girl...Sophia.I guess you can say she-and his  darling daughter Emilia <3 are the love of his life.Well before that he was a very talented drummer in a heavy metal band with all that comes with it of rock'n roll life and traveling around to gigs. And I was really proud of him. Then Sophia came, and his life´s journey took another turn..My playful and carefree junior, grew to be a  responsible and enthusiastic father and  house owner who takes care of his family and estate in the best possible way. And loving every bit of it:)But he still plays drums, now as drum teacher:)
I have created the grungy background with Faber Castell Gelatos on a watercolor paper-I will post a tutorial on how id did later- and used Ingvild Bolmes cool Junkyard findings and Tim Holtz Fragments as embellishments.

Have a lovely week

I did not keep my promise...

Hi all my sweet and patient friends <3 . I did not keep my promise to post frequently... At all. And I´m so sorry. But the good thing is, that it´s newer too late to make a new fresh start! And i have two GREAT news ( not quite new as for today, but..) I have been invited to join two design teams since I last posted! C.S.I (Color Stories Inspiration) , and The Flying Unicorn. And I´m beyond thrilled to be a member of these two AMAZING teams! All my LOVE to Debbi(C.S.I) and Alda (Flying unicorn)for giving me this opportunity! <3 <3
Soo, what have I been up to then. A Lot ! So I think It´s best to give you one project at the time.

I will start with the newest and then go back in time

Color Hill Layout.

Color Hill is a Polish company, and I got some of their papers from Alda to play with. And I really did!The paper line is called Refresh collection and is so fun and playful.Had tons of fun creating this LO

T thought i should go with the kinda square theme that's going on in this line. So I cut the colored papers into squares in different shapes and sizes and did a lot of layering. Then I grabbed a mask with squares and and started to build up the background. And misted and misted and splattered a lot! Misting and masking is sooo fun :) I made three flowers out of white cardstock, and took an old one from my stash, threw in some cheese cloth, and wood embellies too. Doodled around the letters, and a bit here and there on the page. The beautiful woman is my mother back in the sixties. i thought the photo was perfect to this graphic and clean paper line. And that's all for today my friends. See you all tomorrow :)! I promise ... Take care, XOXO    Angelica
