sketch for STuck sketchs due June 14th


Here’s my take on Stuck?! Sketches.  I used a mask and molding paste on the background and lots of mists to add color here and there.  I used a couple different foliage chippies and some wood veneer leaves to add to the beauty of my Petaloo flowers.

I colored the chipboard pieces by first painting with white gesso.  Then I sprayed them with Goosebumps, painted with Silks olive green and then a final misting with Lindy’s Ponderosa Pines Olive.  The wood veneer leaves I painted with Silks olive green and then just a touch of Lindy’s Autumn Maple Crimson on the ends.

I’ve used the Leafy Corner Flourish Set chipboard underneath the flowers in the corners.

I also used Frond Set 1 chipboard and wood veneer Fall Leaves set of 16.

Be sure to stop by the Creative Embellishments store to get the pieces I’ve used on my layout.  There are so many great pieces to choose from so be sure to look around.
