Thanks- Sketchbook 365 August Challenge



Its a new month at Sketchbook 365 and we have a new sketch for you today!!


I really love this picture and there's a story behind it like any picture but I think I'll let you interpret it any way you want. Just know that G-d is watching you and shining a ray of light on each and every one of us.


This is one of my favorite color combos and I used lots of Prima flowers to embellish this old collection from Basic Grey.



I used one of my favorite Elemental masks from Finn's 2013 Summer release. I masked the circles using molding paste and then painted them with Pearlescence peach colored acrylic paint and gesso.





Finally on the sides, I added words that are very meaningful to me and that make my soul soar!




Materials:
Papers: Basic Grey
Flowers: Prima
Elemental mask from Prima
light molding paste
Gesso, cheesecloth
metal embellishments: Prima
Die cut: memory box
Pearlescense paint
Dark Bark fluid chalk ink by Prima
words: melody ross

May God bless all of us with health and happiness now and always!!
