It is Friday night and that means there is a new challenge up at Scrap your Story and this week it is a skectch challenge. I hope that you will play along and you can check out what the DT did with the sketch HERE.
This is the sketch for this week.
Here is my take on the challenge.
I decided to use Kraft paper as my background and I used my brick stencil with some gesso to replicate the bricks in the photos, which I then water coloured too. The papers are from MME and the colours were perfect. I used circles and banners and then added a quote that says "Sometimes you will never know the true value of a moment until it becomes a memory." Seemed fitting for the photos of this old Church in Bristol . I was totally captivated by the beautiful lush ferns growing out of the brickwork. Journalling on the back.
My Journalling reads...
I am not a religious person by any stretch of the imagination but I do have very strong spiritual views and beliefs. I am drawn to all manner of religious buildings, from cathedrals, to temples and everything in between. For me the one thing that they do all have in common is a sense of peace and tranquility which I find very reassuring and comforting. I found this old church while I was wandering through the streets of Bristol on my last visit. These were the photos that I took. Nothing else. Made me think of new life. :)
