his spotter | Stuck?! Sketches

HI there!

There is a brand new sketch challenge up at Stuck?! Sketches ...

... and we have two amazing sponsors!  Both,


are ready to give two winners a prize!

I would lie to share my take on the sketch with you...


Our dog Mollie, was always ready to supervise her boy in his activities!

I pulled out some scraps of Jillibean Soup papers that I had left over from another project because I like the colours with these photos. I decided to use paint, ink and stamps to creative the vertical elements of the sketch, and then layered on some Washi tape and part of a Jillibean Soup place mat.  I also added splotches of water colour paint here and there using an easy technique that I will be sharing soon.

After layering my photos onto patterned paper, I had fun with embellishments.

I drew on the circle elements and added the title as me last steps.

Supply List:  Cardstock: American Crafts; Patterned paper, die cuts, cork, place mat, wood veneers, alphas and stickers: Jillibean Soup; Washi: Freckled Fawn; Tim Holtz distress ink; Leow's water colour paint; Staedtler pen; Kaisercraft stamp; Hemptique twine; Mr. Huey's black mist; misc. buttons.
