Sketch #147

Team A is up over at Let's Capture These Sketches this week, and Natalie provided us with a great sketch to work with.  I love grids, so this was right up my ally.  Here is the sketch.

Here are some close ups of my take.

Lots of yummy misting , and a little stamping (there's some white under the "ait", it's just hard to see.  Maybe someone can help me here.  I've been using Stampin' Up's white, but with less than thrilling results on patterned paper.  What should I be using to get the best result?  Paint?  Gesso?  I'd sure appreciate your tips.

Loved this sketch, and knew right away that I would want to cut up a 4x6 photo to use with it.  Darwin says it makes his head look funny, because his neck is cut, but I think the pieces are close enough together that your eye isn't fooled.

You can have a peek at the rest of the Team's layouts, and link up your own take on the sketch here.

Lily Bee Design: patterned paper, index card, and card stock bit
Pink Paislee: ticket
Jillibean Soup: "summer" alphas, journal spot
American Crafts: "portrait" alphas
Studio Calico: Stamp, mists
Cute Tape: glassine bag
Prima: wood button
Chic Tags: flair badge, punched tap

We're off to celebrate the last long weekend of the Summer at the lake.  One last weekend of sleeping in, beaching, and family fun time before the craziness of the Fall schedules overtakes us.  I hope you have a wonderful weekend.
