February 1st OUAS challenge partnering with 'Get Creative'



A sneaky 'sneak peak'...please read more.... ;)

Over at Once Upon A...Sketch, we are nearing the end of our first year and during this time we have noticed a huge amount of support from many countries around the world and we are incredibly lucky that our challenges are supported by so many people from all different parts of the globe. One of these countries is Greece, and we have come to realise that we receive many entries from such a small country where scrapbooking is so new, so we had a think and decided to team up with another challenge blog based in Greece and run by our very own Irini Liolia called Get Creative. How exciting!! We have decided to become "sister" blogs, because let's face it...most of us scrapping are women and is there anything stronger than a sisterhood? So for this month only, the Design Team from Once Upon A..Sketch are guests over at Get Creative and taking part in their 1st and 15th of the month challenges and the Design Team from Get Creative are guests on Once Upon A..Sketch! Thus a new bond is formed between 2 challenge blogs.

Here is the sketch that the Once Upon A..Sketch Design Team had to follow. It is created by Get Creative Design Team member Elina Katechi
So head on over to the Get Creative blog to see what the rest of the Design Team created and to find out what prizes etc are up for grabs and then visit Once Upon A...Sketch to see the February 1st challenge

Here's my take on the sketch....


I am thrilled that I was able to capture this magical moment that lasted only a few seconds. Adam paused after having come out of the pool, and was so delightfully happy watching the drops of water rolling off his nose, laughing and saying "drip drop... ." Moments like these, I am reminded of the innocent spirit of children and their ability to find joy and wonder in the simplest of things. The challenge as an adult, is how to hold on to the childlike sense of wonder.

Esu neapsakomai laiminga kad įamžinau šį momentą. Adomas, lyg saulės zuikutis,  iššoko iš baseino ir keliom sekundėm pasilenkęs stebėjosi nuo nosies riedančiais vandens lašais. Vaikišku žavesiu nusijuokė ir atkartojo krentančio vandens garsą 'drip drop'.  Po akimirkos jis atgal įšoko į vandenį. Šis netikėtas Adomo kadras man esa vienas iš favorit'ų.
Vaikų sugebėjimas žavėtis tokiomis smulkmenomis priverčia mane dažnai susimąstyti kad ištiesų - laimė slypi ne daiktuose ar mūsų aplinkybėse, ji esa mumyse.

*I've used the below sketch provided to the OUAS desig team by Get Creative, but 'tweeked it' a bit: the sketch is rotated 90 degrees clockwise; instead of a circular mat for my photo I chose a square; I liked the idea of a diagonal flow of the clusters of embellishments, but I changed the direction of this diagonal.

*Pateiktą eskizą apsukau, ir vietoj apvalios formos po foto, panaudojau stačiakampį...sunku man kartais {dažnai} skrebinti tiksliai pagal eskizą.

Sutinku su Nadia, tu visada labai kurybingai ir kitaip/savaip perteiki brezinius. Patiko mėlynas purkstas pavadinimas ir tie vos iziurimi drugeliai, bet labai subtilus!

Dolly Daydreams said...

What a fabulous layout and love how you have changed it up, i agree with Nadia the photo is amazing.

I agree with the comments, you are quite the photographer! I love that you captured that moment. I have an older daughter and she always wants to hear childhood memories and its hard to recall the small precious ones, but you will have lots for them with your scrapbooks. A real treasure!

kaip grazu!! o kokia grazi akimirka ir tikrai verta is vaiku pasimokyti dziaugtis tokioms smulkmenomis! labai patiko spalvos, o pavadinimas isvis pakerejo, lyg laseliai nuplove kapsedami nuo mazojo nosytes :)
jei nepaslaptis kaip padaromas toks pavadinimas.. na turiu omeni turbut ant atskiro lapo issikarpai raides ir naudoji kaip trafareta? :)

EnglishTeacher Jurgita said...

grazu :)

ir man idomu, kas ten is karto po nuotrauka?popierius jau toks buvo ar kazka pati padarei su dazais, kad toks efektas tarsi lasai/vanduo ant stiklo :)

Irma said...

Wow! Thank you all for such kind words!

Ačiū visom už liaupses :)
Atsakysiu į technikos klausimus:
Po nuotrauka yra štampuota ir embosinta (karštu fenu) su žydros spalvos embosinimo milteliais.
Antspaudas yra raudonos gumos, labai didelio formato: Impression Obssession firmos "Cover-a-Card: Fizz" Code: CC013

http://impression-obsession.com/Merchant2/merchant.mvc?Screen=CTGY&Category_Code=2CAC

Toliau apie pavadinima:
Pavadinimas taip pat yra štampuotas raudonos gumos raidyno antspaudukais (po vieną raidę), bet su skaidriais milteliais lydytas. Čia gaunasi 'resist' štampavimo technika, kadangi po embosinimo skaidriais milteliais, bent kokius dažus paliesi, ta vieta kur embosinta 'reist' t.y. atmuša dažus.

Kadangi raidyno antspaudukai ne skaidrūs, buvo sudėtinga lygiai štampuoti. Bet kitavertus, galbūt tai į temą, kadangi rodos kad lašai nuplauna pavadinimą, ar pats pavadinimas rieda žemyn :)
