Once Upon A Sketch - February 2014 - Alicia Redshaw

I have created this layout using the February Sketch at Once Upon A Sketch.  It is as always a fabulous sketch created by Nadia Cannizzo.

I have journalled about Naomi-Jon’s addiction to cuddles with her baby brother, back in 2007.  I have to add that she still has this addiction and so does he, they have always shared a special bond which we love.

Now for some close-ups of my layout:

I have used the Mists, Gelatos, Absorbent Ground and Light Molding Paste to create a fabulously touchable Mixed Media background.

I have also used the Gelatos with water added to add detail to the embellishments and background.  I used the pink and aqua/mint as highlights, and then the coconut (white) to tone them down when the colours popped too much.
