I decided to do a mixed media project based on this sketch to add to my Scrapbook Life Journal.

Variation #1: I painted my background and shaded it with various colors, I then used various clear stamps to create texture.

Variation #2: I cut my hearts freehand and mod podged it to the paper.

Variation #3: I added my stitching to make the heart garlands.

Variation #4: I added glitter to the edges of the layered hearts and stitched it to the background.

Variation #5: I added the lettering of a Scripture between the hearts.

Then onto the February sketch on Scrap Africa.  

Sketch #2

For this challenge you have to use Fab Scraps products.  Go on over to the blog to see what the other members of the Design Team did...and do enter as there is a wonderful prize up for grabs.

Here is my take on the sketch. 
I love the background paper that I used for this layout.  It is called Shabby Chic Stitched...I teamed it with the red and cream dotted classic Black Birds paper.  The photo's are of my grandson and son on the tractor at their small holding.  He insists on helping daddy and as you can see it is hard work for such a small little boy.

Now it is your turn. You have until 8 March to make your layouts and stand a chance of winning wonderful prizes from Fabscraps
There are two prizes for grabs to the value of R250 ($35) each. 
The random will choose two winners among the participants on 23 March after the closing date for our second challenge.
The prize will be posted anywhere in the world.

Have a wonderful creative weekend.
