Skissedilla challenge #191

I've admired this challenge blog for ages, especially all the gorgeous mixed media inspiration going on there, but I've never participated in a challenge till now, partly 'cause I'm not so good at following sketches, but this one caught my eye so I gave it a go!

Instead of using stars as embellies I've used them in the background (with this very old kinda ugly Bella paper... part of my mission to Scrap my Crap :)

Lots of mess and splats going on... and some tissue paper and white paint layers to tone down the star print...

I luv this pic of Holly.... she's got such a cheesy grin :)

The tag behind the photo turned out kinda cool... I've used some pink Mister Hueys and some brown Glimmer Glaze then stamped some stars with clear embossing powder. This has masked them so when I sprayed the blue Dylusions over the top the red/pink embossed areas show up really well.

Materials used: Bella! paper, Typo green envelope, October Afternoon file tab and stickers, Ruby Rockit Summerhouse flowers and butterfly, Fuzzy Coconut Glimmer Glaze, blue & green Dylusions, Pink Mister Hueys, white Kaiser acrylic paint, manilla tags, washi tape, tissue paper, twine.

Stay COOL everyone, it's the kind of week where I wish our giant air conditioner was working... heading for 38 degrees Celsius on Tuesday for Tyler's  5th birthday, oh joy!! I think we'll be in the pool ALL day.

EDIT: Oh, wooooot! I won! http://skissedilla.blogspot.com.au/2013/01/winner-sketch-191.html
