Free- Sketchbook 365 September Sketch Reveal



I was excited to scrap more pictures of my son flying the kite at the beach last month. This sketch for Sketchbook 365 gave me the perfect opportunity.
I'm delighted to reveal my layout for the September sketch at Sketchbook 365


It is a very linear sketch with lots of white space which is quite different from my style. However I made it my own and chose to add some mixed media elements and flowers.


I was super excited to use the new 9th Wave collection from 7 Dots Studio, designed by the multi talented Finnabair and all I have to say is that these papers are gorgeous!!!




One of the things I loved creating on this LO was these mixed media strips up and down the page. first I spread some clear gesso across the page and then using some Shimmerz paints and the tip of the wooden part of my paint brush. I used: Green with Envy, Blue By U and Peas be mine.
I simply dipped the tip in the paint and then painted the strips roughly. 


If you want to try some of the Shimmerz paints come visit the Shimmerz store. If you mention my name during checkout at the "Instructions to Merchant" box, you can receive a free Shimmerz product. I'm a GD there this month so come visit to see everyone's work.

Materials:
Papers: 7 Dots: 9th wave
Flowers: Prima
golden gesso
Liquitex clear gesso
Shimmerz: peas be mine, green with envy, Blue By U
Stamp: Hero arts
Black coal IB fluid chalk ink by Prima
art studio turquoise paint
