Sketchabilities 129 with Swirlydoos Treasured Yesterdays kit

Sharing a layout today created using the new sketch from

This is sketch 129
and it's PERFECT for some custom background making.
I paired the sketch with the October kit
Treasured Yesterdays
from Swirlydoos.

This is the page I created.
The base paper is from Prima's Epiphany collection.
Layers of masking tape, lace, washii tape,
drywall tape and cheesecloth were all adhered to the paper before being covered with a 
layer of Gesso.
While it was still wet I dropped some 
Cobalt Teal (fav color EVER!) acrylic paint from Golden 
onto the page and brushed it around.
Slate Glimmer mist was heavily misted and the page was tipped sideways
for the streaks.

There is stamping using both StazOn and Distress ink.
Stamps from Oxford Impressions, Tim Holtz and Club Scrap helped
add pattern to the background over the paint and other medias.

Petaloo flowers, Prima Die Cuts & metal bits
all were added to the page.

Several circles were hand drawn using a Distress Marker, Charcoal pencil, 
Sharpie and India ink.
Thread scraps were added around as well.

That's it for today.
Make sure to stop by the Sketchabilities blog to 
see how others are
using the sketch.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.
