January 15 Stuck!? Sketch Challenge

I only just realised that it's almost the end of the month already and I hadn't done the second challenge over at So here is my take on the sketch.  I was given this photo recently of my late mother-in-law, who passed away when my husband was only 14. She was a very attractive lady and very photogenic, so we do have a few lovely photos of her. Unfortunately most of the photos are undated. She wasn't really a farm girl so I'm not sure why she was on this horse holding a rifle, but she looked like she was having fun anyway.

I haven't created anything vintage for a while, so it was fun to get out all my vintage embellies etc. Of course I had to do lots of inking as usual otherwise it just doesn't feel right :)  And I adjusted the sketch to the 12 x 12 format. TFL


  1. Love your Vintage style Jo..looks amazing. Fabulous photo and embellies and I love to ink things too. x

  2. Excellent adaptation of the sketch! I love the masking & inking. It was the perfect touch! Beautiful layout.

  3. Love the vintage of this page, lace is gorgeous and masking looks great, maybe she was modelling? Hugs and love xo
