Feeling Sketchy??

There's a great new sketch up at Sketchabilities today, featuring the first reveal of the new design team (and some returning, including me) design team!  CLICK HERE and come check the reveal out!  Here's the sketch:

And here's my take on it.

I had so much fun playing with the background.  I had some gray corrugated cardstock left from the Collecting Moments kit from The Memory Nest  (CLICK HERE for more info on the kit and how you can get it 40% off!) and it was perfect for layering color and texture on.  I started with some mists, then layered gelatos, hand painted acrylic rectangles, and modeling paste over that.

I painted a wooden arrow white to point to my hairclip-that-wasn't-marketed-to-be-a hairclip.  This rhinestone and resin clip is perfect on a scrapbook page, but it's also perfect in my hair.  ;-)

I painted some wooden frames black to layer over the hand-drawn rectangles for dimension and then layered some Basic Gray frames over that.  I'm loving layered shapes.  You will be seeing more of this in my upcoming layouts!

Thanks for stopping by!




  1. Great layout Shawna! I haven't played around very much with mists and gelatos but the page I've seen with them are so cool.

  2. Oh I love the dramatic colours... such a fun layout about a very fun topic. Go you... I don't have enough hair for pretty embellies hahahahahahahaha
