Here is a layout I did for a sketch challenge at Lets Get Sketchy. This picture was taken of my daughter and her friends at a crop last year and I absolutely love it.
I made the background with gesso through a stencil. Then I went over the raised parts with some Distress Paint dabbed on with a paper towel (how technical!) and then laid a second stencil over top of that and used chalk ink. Then I finished with 2 colors of chalk ink on a stamp and some splattered paint.
This is an odd color combination for me – light blue, light green, baby pink and burgundy. However I found some patterned paper with those exact colors so I figured it was ok if someone else also thought of it 🙂
I used bits of distressed paper with a few layers and some fussy cut flowers too.
There are bunches of flowers and some thread thrown in.
