rainy days

Hello - I have a LO to share that I created for the Once Upon a ..... Sketch challenge - I always enjoy Nadia's sketches and journalling theme ☺ For August, it's all about seasons and I've chosen Winter!!
 I really did enjoy creating this page, not only because of the challenge but also because I got to use Basic Grey - Clippings collection - totally love this one!!!
I've added some background effects to the base paper using a Unity Stamp called Splatters & Stars from Paper Stories. I've stamped with white ink and also paint!
I've also sneaked in some Hambly and chevron washi tape
And I've used a photo of my youngest boy walking in the Winter rain with his umbrella ☺
Here are some close-up's:
 ... mini rosette die using the Clippings collection papers ... the paper garland is from the same collection - it's already sewn together, you just need to pop it out from the paper and stick to your LO - so easy and so lovely ☺
 ... another rosette and more of the garland papers ... also a flair button from Paper Stories ...

And here is the fabulous sketch should you wish to play along - really love the design of this one ☺

Basic Grey - Clippings Collection can be found at Handmade by Suzanne - this really is a pretty cool collection and I can't wait to use it some more.
Have a great week - we have a birthday in the family tomorrow - my baby is turning FOUR and he's so excited.  I'm looking forward to his little party☺
Happy crafting and thanks for coming by.

I love your interpretation of the sketch. You did a lovely job with the layering, and the white ink & paint are so appropriate for a winter LO.
