And friday means that it is time for another sketch challenge over at Stuck On U Sketches, this week with a gorgeous sketch by Sandi Clarkson.
I started my layout with the rediscovery of these two beautiful pictures of my daughter form the summer of 2010 - taken by my brother actually. I just love how concentrated she is studying the things she can find at the beach. That was always one of my favourite things to do as a kid too.
I did a lot of experimenting on this one using Tsukineko Goosebumps, inspired by Linn Sjåfjell. Idea was to give the background paper some texture, which I later accentuated using distress ink (vintage photo), but I did not like how that turned out (too dark and dull), so I also added some bright green stains using a paint dabber from Ranger. in the end I was very happy. You cant see the texture in the photo I am afraid, so you will just have to believe me ;)
Thanks for stopping by - hope you liked my layout. Here is the gorgeous sketch Sandi made for us this week. Please come join the fun at Stuck On U Sketches :)
