August sketch at Handmade by Suzanne

Hello everyone....welcome to a new month! (August already!?!?)
We all know a new month means new challenges and sketches!  So of course there is a new sketch at Handmade by Suzanne....and it is a fabulous 2 photo sketch, created by fellow DT member, Nadia Cannizzo....






And here is my layout.....

Using some of the gorgoeus My Minds Eye - Nostalgia ...some fab 2crafty chipboard pieces (Design Elements & Gears ) and a very versatile Lil' Red Rocket orange checkered button!

 
of course, a few close ups....


 
To get the rustic, almost rusty look on the 2crafty chipboard scroll & the cog, I first painted them in Gesso...and then dabbed them with Mr Huey's Pumpkin Spice mist.  With the Gesso on first, it kind of creates bits of resist with the mist...I love the effect! 



 
And there is the orange checkered Lil' Red Rocket button tucked into my cluster, along with a handmade calico flower, some Kaisercraft blooms & a few other bits n bobs from my stash.

 
My Journaling & title about this old fence & fence post that found & enjoyed taking pics of in Tassie.



So there you have my take on the August sketch at Handmade by Suzanne...I hope you're inspired to give the sketch a go :)

You have until the end of the month to upload your entry to the August sketch folder in the Handmade by Suzanne gallery, which you can find HERE.  There is an awesome $40 store voucher up for grabs that includes FREE postage!  And all you have to do is enter....the winner is determined by random draw .  So, you gotta be in it to win it....time to get scrapping! 

Looking forward to seeing your entries :)
Until next time....xxx
