And here the sketch:

November Sketch Challenge

I started by adhering “Vintage Artistry Lilac – Ingenue” paper to thick chipboard sheet and then applied clear gesso on it. Then I tore a strip of “Vintage Artistry Lilac – Mystique” and layered it on my base paper. To add dimension, I adhered a cardboard sheet between the paper layers.

Then I took 2 frames from “Vintage Artistry Essentials – 3×4 File Frame” Set and adhered on the photos. After that I selected various elements from the “Vintage Artistry Lilac Ephemera Stack” and “Vintage Artistry Butter Ephemera Stack” and stacked them to create a layered background for the photos.

Then created flower clusters using “Enchanted Petals – Sunshine”, “Enchanted Petals – Twilight” and “Flower Mini Series 01 – Cream” flowers. I also inserted beautiful plastic leaves from “Vintage Artistry Essentials – Foliage” in between the flower layers. I also shaped few flower fussy cuts from “Irrevocable Beauty 12×12 Collection Pack” and stacked them under flowers.

“Vintage Artistry Essentials – Foliage” has beautiful butterflies and I used a few which added beauty to the layout. To adorn the layout I added pearls, art stones,  “Wishing Bubbles and Baubles – Lilac” and  “Wishing Bubbles and Baubles – Butter”.

To finish the project and to add more texture, I used “Vintage Artistry Butter / Lilac Rub-On Transfers” around the composition, “Roughly Sewn Rub-Ons in Black” around the edges and added some stamping using “Ticket Express Stamp Set”.
