May 15th OUAS; Theme "Mum" usin Prima "Nature Garden"



Welcome to the mid monthly reveal for the May sketch at OUAS!

 We would like you to create a layout and interpret the theme "Mum" 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.



Ideas for journalling: you as a mother, your role as a working/stay-at-home mum, sacrifices/benefits of being a mum, one day in your life as a mum, how your life has changed since being a mum, a tribute to your own mum, grandmother, guardian or someone you consider as close as your mum, your relationship with your mum or your daughter, one trait you have take from your mum, your desire to be a mum, your feelings on motherhood, what does it mean to be a mum?, what kind of mum do you want to be? , Mother's Day celebrations/traditions, your favourite Mother's Day gift given/receive etc



For my layout I used one of the new collections from Prima called "Nature Garden".
The colours and patterns are very subdued and easy to work with.


And this is the beautiful sketch that Nadia prepared for us:


I made my example with lots of layers and sooo much distressing.
I painted, inked and misted the different layers and also made good use of my sewing machine to adhere different elements.


My journalling is about the awesome feeling it was to become a mother of three.
I have talked to a couple of my friends and they felt the same after number three was born,...just elation!
At the same time as being so excited about the new family member I also experienced a strange yearning for one more baby,...to be able to experience this undescribable feeling one more time. I was always happy about waiting before having my firstborn. We had so many things in our life with Uni and work and travel that we would not have been able to do with a baby.
But also with every baby you are a little older and at some point you have to realize that you are not going to have any more. Having had two miscarriages before our eldest was born we felt so blessed with one child . Now we have three  intelligent and beautiful children and could not be happier!!



I have hidden most of my journaling in the rolled up scroll.
For the doilies I used my Cheery Lynn die and the branc is one from Prima Marketing.
I used a chipboard ornament from Imaginarium Designs to form part of my title.

I made a small shabby banner from triangles.
I inked the edges and outlined them, I drew a small messy heart on each of them, and then with my finger I smeared paint on top.When the paint dried I added some liquid pearl from Viva.


I really like this photo of Beatrice.She was happy outside jumping on the trampoline whwn I asked her to pose for a few photos. Her hair is all messy like that!!


Why don't take a peek at what the rest of the team cam up with?

  16. This is an amazing photo! Bea is going to be a stunner just like her 2 big sisters! Love the whole shabby neutralness of this layout - I ordered all these papers too - they are so perfectly unobtrusive. Love how you have dealt with them. I know what you mean about number 3 too. I was the most excited of all because I knew exactly what to expect so the last 2 kids were so much more fun than the first 2. I didn't want to stop - even at 4 - I had to force myself to have the op and I wanted to jump off the table rather than have it done but I did it and I'm glad - 4 is enough!
