OUAS August Challenge

So this months challenge is definately a good one. I had loads of fun creating and honestly didn't know where i was going with it at all. I just picked a season, Summer, and started with a piece of cardstock. Summer always inspires me to think of bright, happy and fun times. I chose a heap of papers from my scraps and a heap of ribbons and sewed them all on. My next step was a little texture paste and my Prima 12x12 mask then some Glimmermist and some alcohol ink splashed around. Then it was onto what photo, so many photos to choose but i settled for the ones of my youngest enjoying her "slip and slide", the expression on her face says it all. Loads of layering and happy things that say Summer to me. I also creatd a pocket and my own tag to tuck away my journalling. My journalling reads "Summer, hands down, is definately Ambers' favourite season. To her Summer means slip and slides, playing under the sprinkler, going to the beach, air conditioning, icy poles and just simply having fun outside all day!"  So now my page.

My tag hidden in the pocket behind my photo..

Just another photo of my whole tag i added some ribbon and a little punched border at the bottom.

SO here is the challenge for over at OUAS.

Theme: Season (Summer, Autumn,Winter, Spring)

We would like you to create a layout and interpret the theme "Season" however you like based on the following sketch. You can journal as little or as much as you like, but your layout must incorporate this theme and the sketch below. Please make sure that we see some sort of journalling on your layouts and please tell us where your journalling is . Hidden journalling is perfectly fine.

Ideas for journalling: current season in your part of the world, favourite season, seasonal traditions on your part of the word, a childhood memory, a summer romance, what summer/autumn/winter/spring brings for you, baby it's cold outside, summer loving, spring is in the air, autumn breeze, summer holidays, seasonal changes, etc etc. Anything goes ..

So that is it for me. TFL!
