Autumn - Let's Get Sketchy - Echo Park

Hi there!

Happy Monday!  It's my team's turn to create over at Let's Get Sketchy this week, and I am here to share my layout with you!

I have to tell you that I had so much fun creating this layout.  I got out some paint, inks and mist, and a new bubble wrap stamp  and set about adding some fun factor to my page.  I also pulled out a lot of things out of my 'spare parts' bin like the die cut flowers and leaves as well as the wooden tag, it was like an Easter Egg hunt for scrappers! lol

I rumpled my kraft paper leaves and added ink to the creases to give them extra texture.   I stamped with brown paint.

Basically, I put ink o anything I could.

 This large wooden tag was yellow but more of a pastel, i added extra ink to 'fall' it up a bit.

I also crumpled the flowers to make them look more like wilted end of the season blooms.

 I love the layers the sketch suggested.

 I also added a bit of stitching for a bit more texture.

And here is the fab sketch created by DT member Jenessa.

Now it's your turn, pop on over to the Let's Get Sketchy blog to see what the rest of the 'Team B'  DT created and link up your take on the sketch for your chance at this month's prize!

Thanks for visiting!
