Hello scrappy and craft friends welcome as always to my blog. Today I would like to show you my Design Team page for Let's Get Sketchy and of course it is another wonderful sketch you get to work with. I loved this one so much and as soon as I looked at it the hunt was on for this particular photo.

This is the sketch and I'm sure you will love it too. 

This is my take and it is a photo of my very handsome son Riley taken of him as he relaxes between swims at a competition. I love this boy of mine and I'm so proud of him in many different ways.

I have created this page on Kaiercrafts white cardstock and mounted the photo on their black cardstock. My title is a Scrap FX chippie and i have inked it black with Distress Ink the same as I have done with the corner chippie.

To start my background I used Pebeo Studio Acrylics High Viscosity Paint - Iridescent Green Blue. I love these paints the colours are just beautiful. I then used Derivan Matisse - Iridescent Medium and Structure Metallic Light gold. 

My stencil is the Kaisercraft's Squares and I used it with modeling paste. on top of the modeling paste before it dried I used POP Microbeads - Metallic Gold. Two other things I used in the background were Irresistible Texture Spray - Gold and Tuxedo Black. 

Once all this was done the very last two things I used were Liquid pearls - Brass and Juniper and randomly placed dots on the page. 

I hope you have enjoyed my page and closeups, but don't forget to hop on over to the Let's Get Sketchy blog and have a look at the rest of the beautiful inspiration from the rest of the design team. Join in with us and have some fun. 
Happy crafting xxx
