You Inspire Me

Hi Everyone! 
I hope everyone is enjoying their Thursday, over here in Melbourne we have enjoyed a beautiful hot spring day today, which I was able to fit in a layout that I have created for Once Upon A Sketches November competition! They have a great sketch for this month, which I felt a MUST to join! If you are also interested in joining the challenge this month click HERE! 

With this sketch, the jouranalling theme is Inspiration/inspired by etc. I decided to use my dad as my inspiration because well....he is one of my inspirations! Dad is and will always be there for me whenever I need him, I know his only a phone call away. Dad has worked extremely hard to get where he is today and to provide for my family, and I can't express how inspired I am by my dad for his work ethic, his love and his compassion.
The final layout:
I have switched the title and journalling around (hence: title is on right side instead of left)

The Sketch:

Am still in love with Faber Castells Whipped Spackle and Kaisercrafts crosses stencil!

I applied gesso around the edges of the photo to create a softer look as I didn't like the sharpness of the photos.
Hidden journaling

For the hidden jouranlling, I used a Project Life card and cut it down to size.

If you have any comments, please feel free to leave them below!
