Sketch 127 at Sketchabilities…Live a Beautiful Life

Sharing a layout today that was created using the
new sketch from 

This is sketch 127...
and this is what I created...
The background was an old piece of scrapbook paper covered with Gesso 
and Modeling Paste spread through a 
Crafter's Workshop stencil.
When it was dry pieces of drywall tape were added for even more texture.

Color was added first in the form of Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists
(Antique Brass, Crushed Shell & Latte)
Once the mists were dry 
Liquitex Acrylic ink in Turquoise Deep was dripped on then misted with water.
Tipping and tilting the paper allowed the color to go all over.
Dry again and then randomly swipe the paper / paste with VersaMark embossing ink, cover with 
Byzantine Bronze embossing powder from 
Lindy's Stamp Gang and melt.

The leaves are all Kaisercraft wood pieces covered with the
same Byzantine Bronze powder as what is on the background.

The little sparkly blue balls are from Petaloo pull apart clusters.
I went one step further, pulled apart and then cut.

Here you can see the texture from the paste, tape and embossing powder.

I am in love with how the acrylic ink is playing with the raised texture of the background.
Might need to do this in my art journal next!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.
