Skissedilla Sketch #177

Hi all,

I love all the sketches at Skissedilla but have never managed to do a layout within the weekly timeframe... until this week!

Here is the sketch:

And my interpretation:

And some close-ups:

Supplies: cardstock (Bazzill); washi tape; old book paper; machine stitching; acrylic paint; buttons (Basic Grey and craft stash); stamp (unknown); gems (Kaisercraft); alphas (American Crafts); Faber-Castell gelatos.

There's a few layers here. First I used a purple gelato to give a watercolour effect as a base, then glued on some old book paper, over which I added some green striped washi tape, and added a border stamp before machine stitching in both purple and green. Then I sponged some acrylic paint in both purple and green before flicking on some black paint. Final touch was adding the photo followed by bling, buttons and title.

Thanks so much for looking.
