Create



Hi Everyone! I found a sketch at Sketchabilities that I just had to try. I love how Karan is doing a little mixed media flair with her sketches. Now this one was an interesting project. I couldn't find the right paper, I fussed, I cut, I tore and finally came up with something. Then out came the stencils and paint. Then the mists. That's where things started to get interested. Too much mist!! A little gesso!! More mist. I wasn't sure what I thought so I sent a pic to my sister and said.. what do you think? Keep it? Or start again? She said keep it so here it is, lol. Do you have those days when you think a project will just come together effortlessly and then it ends up taking all day? Well, this was one of those days!! Happy Scrapping Everyone!!

Thanks so much for stopping by. I love reading your comments and I appreciate your scrappy support! Have a wonderfully happy scrappy day! Lynn

Supplies:
Patterned Paper: Roulette, Calligraphy, Arcade/ Prima Engraver; Yesterday/Prima Lifetime
Stamps: She And He, I am an artist, She Script/Unity Stamp Co.
Mists: Incandescent Copper/ Lindy's; Chocolate/ Stephanie Barnard+
Stencils: Reverse Chicken Wire/ TCW, Cameo Stencil Tea Dyed
Paint: Espresso/Craftsmart

beautiful page and a great picture to go with it. And yes, I know those layouts where I work on for many hours, covering, adding, covering etc etc. But I always end with a lot of texture because of this :)
