Me, Myself and I - Once Upon a Sketch Challenge

Hi Everyone

I hope that you have had a good week and are looking forward to the weekend! I certainly am and hope there is a little bit of rest and relaxation on the schedule! (I can always dream!)

I did a layout for the Once Upon a Sketch Challenge and loved the idea of doing a page about myself as I do not often do this. The journalling was easy but the actual page I struggled with. I had such a brilliant idea in my mind and somehow just wasn't able to translate it onto the page. It is okay I think, but had a different idea in my head.

The photo is matted book style and I did sort of want to tell a story, after actually opening the cover.

So here is the sketch.

And here is my layout.

Once opening the book, here is the inside.

Here is a close-up of the journalling.

And lastly one or 2 more close-ups.

I hope you have a great Friday and weekend.
Thanks for stopping by.
