Words are not enough xxxI have gone a little off piste with my Just One Sketch and skipped No 10 and gone onto No 11. I think that No 10 - to use lots of layers, will be right up my street but decided to do No 11 - a page without photos because it fitted in so nicely with what I was doing at the time. Unless you have been living in a cave in darkest Siberia you will know that Gracia, after months of hard work, has been offered a place at Med School. I wanted to tell her how proud of her we are and so wrote her a very long letter to that effect. I then thought - perfect I can copy it and put it into an envelope and use it on my 'layout without photos'.
It was easier than I had thought because I started by placing all my pieces of paper and kind of pretended that the envelope was a photo. Embellished the page and then embellished the envelope.
What a result! I really didn't think that a page without any photos would mean anything but in fact this one means more to me than any other.
It is unashamedly girly and the letter is unashamedly sentimental but it is, as Amy would say, in the moment journaling. So I just have two more layouts from Just One Sketch to make. I am so sad that this challenge has ended as it is the first class that I have completed for a very long time and I really do hope that there will be a Just one Sketch II !
Reasons to be Cheerful.
1. The inspiration that Miss Smith has given to all of the Just One Sketch participants.
2. That I have made a page that incorporates such an important stage of Gracia's life journey.
3. I have booked next Friday off work and hope that I can get my 'jumble sale, of a house whipped into some sort of order before my friend comes for lunch!
