Once Upon A Sketch February Challenge

Hi crafty friends!!!
I'm here to share a layout I created for Once Upon A Sketch February Challenge.

Here is the sketch.

Here is my take on the sketch.
I always adhere my layouts over a heavy chipboard to make it flat. I place my journaling on the chipboard then stamping it with a personalized stamp.

Here is the journal. Something about my daughter.

Some close-ups

 Homemade glass beads gel. It's the first medium I applied to my base then some misting. 

Layers of stickers and patterned paper underneath the arrow. I made the arrow with a wooden stick that I bought from a drugstore (I think it's for slides), feather and heart.
The chippie word JOY is primed with gesso then colored with prima chalk edgers, dabbing gently to give more texture.

Lovely bow made using the envelop punch board.

Cluster of prima flowers.

Here, I added a stamped image that I fussy cut then colored withe distress inks. The word JOY and chipboard frame behind the photos is from Blue Fern Studio both colored with prima chalk edgers 

That's all for now. Thanks for dropping by and happy crafting!!!
