Let's Get Sketchy - August Week 1

My first reveal for Let's Get Sketchy is this week's sketch challenge.

I scrapped a photo that I took of cousin Camryn at the cottage during July. The Hello Darling collection from We R Memory Keepers was ideal for the colours in the photo.

I started with a clear gesso covered canvas which I stenciled and then watercoloured using Tim Holtz Distress ink. I added a few splatters too.

Then I machine sewed the border using a thicker gauge embroidery thread before I added layers of patterned papers and die cut clusters.

Some bling with jewels and glitter glue as well as wood veneer add some fun touches. I finished it off with vellum journaling strips.

Looking forward to seeing participants takes on this week's sketch. You have until Friday to enter for the DT favourite but a whole month for the monthly prize. Pop over here for the details. 

This is the sketch for August Week 1:

Hope you can join us.
