Sketchabilities #128….Smile like no other

Another sketch has been released over on the 

This is an awesome sketch just begging for a mixed media background.
the layout I am sharing is the 2nd one I created with the sketch,
The 1st one was completely ruined when I was putting finishing touches on it and knocked over a brand new top off bottle of Dylusions mist…I'll pause while you all take a moment to groan lol.
Yet in the end I am far happier with version 2.
Meant to be I guess.

here is the sketch.

This is my take on it.
The background paper is from 
Blue Fern Studios.
I've worked with lots of their embellishments before but never the paper.
It holds up amazing to all the wet elements I put on.

I first added pattern with a Crafter's Workshop stencil and 
Distress Ink in Faded Jeans.
My foam pad on the blending tool wasn't clean so I unintentionally got some cool shading.
Then did some stamping using several background stamps and StazOn in black.

My title is made of letter stickers and Tim Holtz word stickers.

I used Modeling Paste with a Prima large stencil for the roses & vine.
When it was dry I added some Pan Pastel in Turquoise for color.
Wanting to highlight a bit more I added some color from a Spectrum Noir marker
and then with a q-tip dipped in blending solution took most of it off.

Some light misting with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist
in Slate.
Then more blobs of the same mist by flicking the tube.
Some Dresden foil trim, Tim Holtz rub ons, thread remnants and Prima gems finished it off.

Make sure to check out the 
Sketchabilities blog 
and see how others are interpreting the sketch.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
