Somehow I came across the Inkido sketch challenge for August...I can't remember how, but I'm guessing it was from someone elses blog? Anyways...I really love the sketch, so last night I thought I'd give it a go :) And I don't know if anyone else is like me, in that the design of a sketch determines the style of the layout you want to create? Well, for me, this one was calling for something pretty!
Here is what I came up with....
Here is a close up of my main cluster....with some thread bunches that are the trend at the moment
(my first attempt with these)
My title ....I used my Gelato's to alter the colour of the 7Dots Studio letter stickers.
I love that these things can alter the colour of just about anything!
My smaller cluster
These next 2 pics, I'm hoping you can see the texture I created
with the CW Cherry Blossoms template?
To add some texture I cut off a small piece of gyprockers tape, then using my finger dipped in some gesso, I then smooched it into the template, with the tape on top, to give the grided texture of the tape.
I quite like the effect...even with the bit of bleeding from under the template :)
Here you can see a bit more template work...but with a more softer effect, using CW Circle Explosion template
Loved working with this sketch, and I love my finished layout :)
Thanks so much for dropping by.... & for any comments you leave - they are greatly appreciated!
Have a great week ahead...xx
