…loving this sketch…

…and how my layout turned out.

rockin’ the scarf

The top layer of paper began as white cardstock.  I’d drawn with my black sharpie and my Mini Bricks stencil, then added my homemade texture paste (a recipe I found on another blog) inside the stencilled bricks.  I then did some paint/pigment ink pad and stencil work , but it needed something more.  Then I attacked the paper with my mini mister with three different shades of purple and water and sprayed down the page.  Not enough color.  So I painted a deep purple directly onto the paper.  Better.

It needed a little bit more punch.  Time to experiment.  I grabbed my Tattered Angels Rouge spray and just did one spritz, and really liked it.  So I added a bunch more along the side, let it drip a bit, then set it down to dry.  While that dried, I combined a large scrap of light yellow patterned paper from We R Memory Keepers and some black and white love graffiti paper and stuck them together in the opening of the top paper layer.  I made a triangle of paint to mesh the two a little more, then did some doodling.

After the spray dried, I grabbed my paints and stencils.  I used an alphabet stencil and some yellow and orange paint mixed together in s couple spots.  Then I used white and (when the white was dry) yellow paint through a stencil to add my chevrons.  Once the paint was all dry, I used a think black American Crafts pen to outline the chevrons and the bricks.

Then I added my photos, journaling and embellishments.  Among my embellishments are Amy Tangerine die-cuts and stickers (“Oh Joy”, frame on top left and under center photo), part of a Studio Calico  border sticker (green on left side), dragonfly transparent die-cuts from K&Co., black and white graffiti rub-ons (clearance from Michaels), made by me die-cut shapes (stars, heart, and sun in lower left corner), a Prima key and a mini red clothespin (dollar store, yeah, seriously :P).  I also put my journaling on a tag and popped it up on dimensional adhesive (along with a few corners of my photos) after adding a few embellishments.  I also tucked some embroidery thread behind my top photo and dragonfly die-cut.  Initially I was going to stick with yellow, but saw yellow, black, and a deep purpley (is that a word?) shade that I snagged and put together.
