a treasured POEM

This was a challenge alright- 4 of them-- First one is Frosted Designs to use cardstock only ( this was stepping out of the box for me) Scrap Our Stash "NEW" challenge - so this was a new technique of cardstock only & no pictures- a poem instead, Scrapbookers Anonymous to use either ink, mist or paint along with masking on a project and the last challenge I used was the sketch from Sketch Along Tuesdays over at Frosted Designs.
 All my papers are plain cardstock- which I masked stars on the background, chalked a rainbow,  embossed on the sun and clouds, and fringed for the grass.  I used Tattered Angel Mist, several inks and jelly roll markers. This cardstock was a great challenge for this layout of mine- because I wanted the poem to really be the main focus of this page for my daughters scrapbook.
 She wrote this poem the night her grandfather (my father) passed away and gave it to me the next day, which was also 2 days before I was getting remarried- so it was an emotional roller coaster in our household. I tried to bring out a few of the embellishments that she had written  about in her poem such as the birds, clouds, the sun , rainbows and grass. I used some rain drop like rhinestones  to represent rain from the clouds which she mentioned also in this lovely poem.
I drew some birds and some swirls to represent the wind- which might be kinda hard to see in this photo. This is the original copy that she wrote on -so this will be a treasured page for sure in her book. I know the sketch is not quite the same as Sketch Along Tuesdays- but I was inspitred by the sketch and tried to follow it the best I could with this poem- instead of a photo.
