Happiness is only real....

when shared.

I was browsing the web yesterday looking up various sketch challenges.
One of my favorite places to stop and visit is Skissedilla.
I love the sketches and always have the best intentions to play along and then time gets away from me and I miss the deadline.

Not this time!
I am managing to play with Sketch 219 challenge.
This is the amazing sketch that was offered up...

and this was my take on it.
I used only one photo and pretty much followed the rest of the sketch.
I used my Aug kit from Swirlydoos as the base and added on to it from there.

The base paper is Iron Orchard Design.
Gesso was first swiped over with an old credit card.
The watercolor paint heavily watered down and dripped.
Followed by Stephanie Barnard mist in Guava & Dylusions mist in Black Marble.
Drips away!

Modeling paste through a Crafter's Workshop stencil, once dried it was colored with Pan Pastels.
Various background stamps with Archival ink.

Rub ons from several sheets and black ink rubbed through another Crafter's Workshop stencil.

The chipboard is from Blue Fern, covered in Gesso and stamped over with a script stamp and StazOn.
My title was printed out, outlined with graphite pencil, smudged and outlined again with a Sharpie pen.

This was so fun to create.
I'm glad I managed to make the time to play with this sketch.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.
