Precious life layout...

Good afternoon! Another sketch has been released over at Sketchabilities, and of course , it's great!!! I love all the possibilities of layering and playing with different types of mixed media. The DT inspiration layouts are an added bonus- so much talent!!!Make sure you check out their designs!!

  Here is the latest sketch.....

I started my layout with papers from Teresa Collins Summer Stories collection and this is what I came up with.........
I laid a base coat of Gesso around the center of the base layer and went from there! You can hardly see it but I did stencil some  chevron in Tim Holtz gold metallic distress stain. It kinda blended into the background so I stamped a bit of CTMH houndstooth and burlap throughout the page,too. Pretty much everything is edged with Prima fluid chalk ink ( Black Coal) and-or distressed. The journaling tag and elements are all from Teresa Collins with the exception of the chipboard flower and button, which are from Prima, and the Washi polka dot tape is from CTMH.I may get around to adding some journaling- more than likely I will tuck it behind the photo or the journaling mat. One of these day...... lol!!! I added a notebook strip of cardstock in pale blue for a pop of color ( SU! spiral punch).
I love how quickly this page came together- having a great sketch really gets my creative mojo going!
That s my Sketchablities layout- hope you enjoyed it! Thanks for stopping by today.....have a creative day!!!
