I was so thrilled when I received an email from Mareng Becky (Fleck) of the famous PageMaps asking me to be one of the contributors in her March newsletter and sketches . Of course, I excitedly accepted even though a bit apprehensive as it has been a long time since I followed a sketch.
Here’s the sketch that was assigned to me:
Decided to rotate the sketch to the right and use this:
So here’s my take:
(Materials Used: Basic Grey, MME, October Afternoon, Tinkering Ink-PAPERS; Prima, Heidi Swapp, American Crafts-FLOWERS; American Crafts velvet THICKERS; Prima, MME JOURNALLING TAGS; Ranger ACRYLIC PAINT; Ranger STICKLES; Local glittered alpha CHIPBOARD, BUTTON, LACE, BLINGS)
(Journalling: I often wonder how come such a pure beauty like you come from an imperfect one like me?It must indeed be God’s pure & perfect love. As you grow old, may your beauty shine and touch people’s lives. Remember though, that beauty is never skin-deep and superficial, it is what you are inside that transcends what is truly and purely beautiful.)
Glad I found the perfect photos to go with it. These were taken during our long holiday in Boracay last Dec/Jan. Gaby was trying to build a sandcastle here while I was busy snapping some shots of the island’s beauty. I found the most beautiful in her with those angles. Don’t you agree?
Hope you will try the sketch too. It’s so easy and fun to do. I will have to refer to Becky’s sketches more often now for inspiration, that’s for sure!
