a little sketch inspiration....

Today I am sharing a layout I did based off a sketch over at C'est Magnifique Kits' Blog. I stumbled across this sketch and thought it was pretty inspiring... 
I am continuing to work on my birthday pictures and with Echo Park's Capture Life Line. 
I really had fun with this layout using all kinds of mixed media goodness.
Here is my take on the sketch: 

the details:

 I started by painting a thin layer of Gesso on my patterned paper.

You can see here the difference, the bright piece of patterned paper is what my background originally was before I cover it in Gesso. 

 A little stenciling with Art Anthology Dimensional Gel Paint and a Prima Stencil.

I thin went in with another Prima Stencil and Super Heavy Gesso and then sprayed it with Ranger's Dylusions Mist and Water. 


Using my Silhouette Cameo, I cut out my frame. Before I took it off the mat, I laid my stencil down and sprayed it with Dylusions Ink Spray. 

Then the layering of paper begin. Once I got things where I wanted and adhered them, I went back with my stencil and Super Heavy Gessso. Then a few embellishments and wa-la!
