One thing that I love about sketches is that it alleviates the one thing that can be a struggle and that is the initial layout plan. A sketch takes that first step away.
Here is my take on the wonderful sketch challenge for Lets Scrap Challenge 3-15-16
I used a Kaiser craft paper with I distressed the edges and then stencilled with a coarse textured paste.
Each photo is matted twice, the first being a fine sand paper, and then the bottom matt was wet and scrunched up and then flattened out.
I was originally going to use real shells on the layout and although I love lumpy bumpy layouts, it would have cause an issue placing into an album so I took a photo of the shells and then cut them out for the layout, hence the reason they look so real.
I did use some tiny paua shells pieces and tiny pipi shells for the final embellishments.
I embossed the little crabs and I cut the sea weed free hand.
Hope you like the layout and I can't wait to see you interpretation of the sketch.
