October challenges combined
[switching to English for this post]
Here's my contribution to Scrap around the world and to Once upon ...a sketch for October. To two of my favourite challenges, that is! I was inspired by the butterflies and rich colors of Scrap around the world's October moodboard, especially because many of the colors, such as dark blue, yellow and gold, are not colors that I naturally gravitate towards. It's good to challenge oneself. And I wanted to use a lot of butterflies, but more as texture than as butterflies...
I played with color in all sorts of forms, mainly gelatos, acrylic paint and ink. Inspiration for the layout's composition and journaling came from Once upon ... a sketch's October challenge. I did twist the sketch around. The journaling, in Finnish, tells about the importance of girls being able to go to school and how relatively new of a privilege it is, historically speaking. Glad to be inspired as always!
