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.
