As one of the design team members at Sketches 4 All, I host a Monthly Mayhem challenge. This month the challenge combines a sketch from PageMaps with an outdoor photo/theme. For my project, I am using a photo taken in Betws-y-Coed (pronounced BET-iss-ee-coyd) in Wales. The area is known for beautiful rivers, mountains, and hiking trails and my husband and I went there often when we lived in England. On this trip, we were extremely amused to see one of the trails marked for handicap access. But when you look at the trail, you wonder how one could even walk it, let alone navigate a wheelchair. So amusing!
All kinds of materials were used including three printed kraft papers from Paper Studio (perfect for the March Scrap Our Stash challenge), two different green cardstocks, gesso, droplets from a brown Dylusions ink, Thickers from Studio Calico, border sticker from Fancy Pants, mustard-colored bookplate, rub-on letters from L'il Davis, "adventure" tag from MME Indie Chic, twine around the stone circle, and a corrugated arrow from CTMH that I painted with acrylic paint. The use of the pewter square brads as inspired by Lasting Memories #129 where the challenge was to use 2 or 3 of something so I used TWO sets of THREE brads each :-)
