backyard boy

 Hello crafty people .......... and hello March!!  Already ☺  Today I'm sharing my take on the sketch for The Scrapbook Store.  Check out this fun sketch, full of cool elements.  Remember, sketches are a starting point - a fun place of inspiration ☺

Project: March Sketch - TSS
Title - Backyard Boy

 And here is my page:
 I've stayed true to the over-all feel of the sketch - just flipping it over to one side.  I've also used two smaller photo's of my happy little man ☺
 I've used some bright and happy papers by Bella Boulevard as well as Heidi Swapp Color Magic + Colour Shine.  My title is chipboard by Blue Fern Studios.'
Here are the details and close-up's:
 Color Magic + Color Shine = a great combination - lots of fun and shimmer ☺  This heart is from the Resist Ephemera Pack - it's filled with lots of fun shapes which have a resist pattern on them - the pattern is revealed once you've sprayed over with Color Shine.
 And here are more elements from the same pack - I've used assorted Color Shine sprays.
For the title: I've covered in gesso and then sprayed over with Color Shine - inking the edges once dry.

Product used:
espresso ink
black pen
script stamp
modelling paste
