OUAS and Berry71 Bleu May challenge

This month Once Upon a Sketch and Berry71 Bleu have teamed up with a joint challenge. 

The challenge at OUAS was to use the sketch and include a meaningful number somewhere on the layout - either in the title or journalling. Berry71Bleu had the additional criteria of using chipboard.

I used the number 20 as it is very meaningful for us this year. In August we will have been married 20 years and it is also 20 years since we bought and moved into our house. Coincidently, it was also 20 years since we last went to Port Campbell.

I used a couple of 2Crafty chipboard polaroid photo frames and covered them with Lily Bee patterned paper. The rest of the paper and most of the embellishments are from Amy Tan Sketchbook. I also used some Studio Calico wood veneer embellishments.
The background to my pp was created by watering down some Teal Dylusions to create a watercolour effect.



Here is the sketch that my layout is based on. I sort of flipped it vertically.
