I played along this week with the Skissedilla sketch challenge just because!!! I still have SO many summer photos to use up, and I am really going to try to tackle my summer papers stash to make way for all the new goodies coming my way soon! :) My summer layouts seem to have a pattern: blues, yellows, and sequins. I am hooked on the sequins and how they give my water pages a bit of sparkle.
On the background, I added some bright blue water colors, and then went over it with a circle stencil and some white paint and Frosted Sorbet from Art Anthology to give it some texture. I splattered some yellow and navy mists, and used a small polka dot stamp with some black ink.
I actually used some scraps that were sitting on my desk, along with some papers from my stash (mostly Studio Calico and Crate Paper). Then I dug through my bin of die cuts and chipboard and found a few other pieces that worked, like these pennants from Basic Grey.
Stay scrappy my friends!
