I hope you all are having a relaxing day long weekend. I'm taking advantage of naptime and a rainy day today.
I created a new layout with a great sketch from Sketches in Thyme of my three favorite photo subjects!
Here is the original sketch:
It has been a minute since I did some mixed media, so I broke out my favorite wood grain stencil and another to combine them. I thought of doing texture paste with the chevrons & brown ink with the wood grain, but I decided against it. I might try that technique in the future, however!
I need to remember it is ok to practice first rather than screwing up an entire background page with an experiment...
I have always loved green, and I'm pumped that it seems kelly green is a trending color right now. These fun strip papers are from Echo Park The Wild Life Collection.
This was my husband's first Father's Day to two boys! So sweet :)
This sketch was super great to work with. A simple & quick way to get a page done. I will be rotating this one in the future! :)
