Riding the Waves | Stuck?! Sketches

Hi there!

Today we are launching the newest sketch challenge at Stuck?! Sketches.  Here is a look at the sketch:

For this challenge, we are teaming up with the DT over at Scrap our Stash, who are challenging us to de-stash using the letters from the word L-A-Y-E-R-S!

You have until the 29th to link up with one or both challenges!

I picked up the Simple Stories"So Rad" collection at the last ScrapMuch? crop that I attended, I LOVE it! So much awesome "boyness" in one package! And the colour scheme is so versatile.

This is the page I created using the sketch and this collection:

As you can see I added lots of extra embellishments, I had a ton of fun "shopping" my stash!  I also played with some pale blue Gelatos and a circle stencil on both my cloud and my background paper.  Here are a few close up shots:

I added a bit o black fine line doodling around some of my page elements.

This is how I incorporated the Scrap our Stash portion of the challenge:

L – life preserver
A -  arrows
Y – yellow embellishments
E – epoxy brads
R – “riding”
S – stencil, sun, Silhouette, stars, stickers

Wycinanka and Lawn Fawn are sponsoring the challenge at Stuck?! Sketches this time around, offering a great prize each!  Be sure to pop on over to see the DT reveal and play along!
