I love Once Upon a Sketch and I always find loads of inspiring examples on there. I've never entered the challenges before but this one really sang to me so here goes.
It follows the sketch pretty closely (it was a lovely sketch) and it does have journalling on it, but in Braille. The subject of he page was about when and why you started scrapping. Well, it was because of my dearly beloved youngest daughter. She was an incredible girl who lost both her sight and eventually her life to an optic glioma. For those who don't know Braille the journalling reads "Why do I scrap. It started when I found out you were blind as a way to make photos interesting for you. Now it allows me to spend time with the photos and memories I have of you Isabelle." The photo of her hands is her reading.
The page has lots of texture - there are embossed bits, scrunched ribbon, fabric flowers, buttons, intricately cut chipboard, glossy accents - everything but the kitchen sink. I still always add lots of tactile things to my pages and when I do scrap it always reminds me of her and how she loved to play with mummy's scrappy pages.
Thanks for looking.
