Sketch Challenge

Here's my interpretation of the sketch challenge for the June Swirlydoos kit. This is a photo of my grandmother back when she first married my grandfather. He was a pilot during the war and he took this photo of her with him on each mission that he flew during World War II. He placed her picture among all the dials and controls of the plane so she was with him.

I originally had this on a piece of the cs that came with the kit but realized how bulky it would be in a page protector so I ripped it up and placed it on this 12 x 12 acrylic piece that I bought at the CK convention. I spray painted the piece with white paint around the edges. The only other items not from the kit are the blue Prima rosebuds and BoBunny rub on. I used my Fiskars apron lace punch to create the punched edge around the big circle.


  1. GORGEOUS, Jan!! I luv that, and have been wanting one of those acrylic pieces. xo

  2. Oh my...this is just so very beautiful! What a lovely tribute to your grandmother! Great job with that Swirlydoos kit! Now I'm getting inspired to delve into mine! :-)
