Once Upon A Sketch – November 2012

Posted by on 6 Nov 2012 in Scrapbooking | 7 comments

The theme this month at Once Upon A Sketch is “Anything Goes”, so I decided to create a layout about Quentins Grandma Heidke.  She is the only Grandparent we have left between us, and we cherish her so very much.

I was careful to tape some scrap paper to all four sides of the 6″x6″ Chicken Wire Mask, so that there was no unwanted overspray on the background.  I also only used a light touch so that excess mist didn’t bleed under the mask.

I spent a lot of time cutting the various flowers from quite a few Basic Grey papers that have been in my stash for some time, and one that has only just recently arrived in my stash too.

I misted the title with the Postbox Red before a light overcoat of the Biscotti.  I didn’t apply the Glossy Accents until the mist was completely dry – with a little help from a heat tool.
