Sweet Face- Ces't Magnifique Sketch Challenge


My daughter loves making these cute faces whenever I point the iphone her way. This photo was taken randomly one day!! I loved combining the purple and green tones together. 



I used the April Ces't Magnifique Sketch as an inpiration for this layout. I inverted the sides to help me with the design.


I used textured paste over a prima mask for the background and then sprayed it with purple chalk ink spray from Tattered Angels.



I encourage you to come and join our challenge this month. Leslie always gives an amazing  prize for the winner.
Here is the sketch for you to play with. So head over to the Ces't Magnifique Blog and try it out.
