Sketchy Thursdays

This was the sketch for this weeks Sketchy Thursdays challenge.


And here is my layout for the challenge.  I don't know if it looks all that much like the sketch in the end!



I used A piece of Reminisce Genuine Boy paper that I bought ages ago and just have never got around to using it.  It was just one of those pieces of paper I was saving for the right photo so I am glad I have finally used it!  Here are some close ups.


I cut some shapes out of acetate and then outlined them in black really like the effect!



I used Memories Mists to colour the chipboard again and then inked the edges.  I really like using the mists for the chipboard it is so much quicker than painting them or covering them in paper, I think I need to get myself a few more colours! 

It is still raining, so far that is every day of the school holidays so far!  Luckily they still play football even when it rains here because the boys have been at football school a couple of days this week.  I am just about to go and play some put-put on the Wii with them!  Tfl!

Love your take on the sketch - a fabulous page and some new ideas for me to scraplift from you - I never think of die cutting stuff from acetate and great how you have outlined it. I also must remember about using mists on chipboard - I usually paint mine or colour in with gel pens which takes forever - misting would be so much quicker.

Thanks for the inspiration Kx

Just like Heidi Swapp ghost letters - great idea about die cutting the acetate, Carin! It is so satisfying when you use up a piece of paper you've been accumulating - I know the feeling! Great layout, and I love the way you've grouped your embellishments.
