Big Idea Festival & Pencil Lines Sketch Challenge

  I've been following along over at Big Picture Scrapbooking's Big Idea Festival, but have yet been able to complete any of the challenge projects.  Until today that is!  With Isabelle down for a nap, I dug in and worked as quickly as possible to create the latest challenge layout with the help of Pencil Lines and Anna Bowkis' latest sketch and Colour Combo's Galore's pallette.

  Anyways, this is the layout I came up with based on my response to the starting sentence provided: I Listen.... I listen to the birds chirping and the squirels chattering as I sip my first cup of coffee in the morning.  This is my favorite time of day as the children are still asleep and the world is quiet.  The photo is a little dark, but with all the smoke and haze from the forest fires, there is little natural light today.  I have yet to finish my journaling, but I wanted to get the layout posted as soon as possible and will finish up tonight when everyone's asleep.

  I liked the addition of a little yellow to this colour pallette to brighten up the more muted tones of the papers.  I painted the grungeboard first with a soft yellow acrylic paint and then sprayed the bird with glimmer mist, so it actually has a shimmer that wasn't picked up in the photo.
