It's been also a long time since I've participated at a sketch challenge, but it's finally the time to do that again :) I created this layout for the Sketchabilities Sketch challenge #122.
For the background I used a DCWV paper from the tea party stack. For the newsprint behind the stacked photo mats I glued down some tissue paper by Papermania with mod podge. After that I gave the background a few spritzes with 13arts mist in pink and Dylusions mist in bubblegum pink. After that I used a damask mask and some texture paste for more texture. To emphasize this texture I used Inka Gold in rose and rubbed lightly onto the paper with my fingers.
For the embellishment I used wood veneers by Studio Calico, sugar dots by Prima Marketing and different washi tapes by MME.
I cut out the bird cages of one of the papers from the stack and glued them to background by using foam dots. Besides, I distressed all the edges of the photo mats and inked them with Distress ink.
And that's their cool sketch I used:
Thank you everyone for stopping by, and have a great weekend!
