Totally addicted to Rock 'n' Roll

  I have to make a quick post this time, because things are a little bit crazy tonight !!! Nothing to worry about, just a  LOT of things that have to be done!! Ok....so here is my project, one more canvas to give to my mother from her school days. I used the theme and sketch from Once Upon A Sketch for this creation and tried to keep it as simple as I could, because I wanted to challenge myself by not using too many colours and embelishments. It was fun !!!
   With my canvas I'll also enter  another challenge over at Scrap Africa , where we must use a "Chipboard with a Difference". I inked with black ink and stamped my chipboard with white acrylic colour to give it a distressed look.


I just wanted to make my background match the colours of the photo, but maybe they came out a bit darker than I wanted...




Here is my altered chipboard from 7 Dots Studio "Nature walk ", the stickers and tag are also from the same collection.



My journaling hidden at a tag behind the photo



...and this is my mother laughing her heart out !!!



...and the sketch
Thank you so much for being here ! Your visits and comments help me become better and encourange me to keep trying!!!
