Dusty Attic January Sketch

I'm back with a project created with the Dusty Attic January sketch. I used the very large scroll #6 (DA0578) and cut it in half to surround my flower cluster. The picture is of my dance instructors. I used the last of my Prima Almanac papers and some Prima packaging to create this layout. The flowers are from Green Tara (I still have lots left over from my time spent on the DT - they are so generous!).

Nadia's sketches are all so beautiful and Dusty Attic is offering up a nice chipboard prize each month for the sketch challenge. Here is the lovely sketch for this month...

On the chipboard I used a faux reverse crackle technique:
Step 1 - Generously stipple gesso onto chipboard and to create "peaks".
Step 2 - Let completely dry.
Step 3 - Dip your finger into chalk ink and gently rub over the textured bumps to highlight them.

Here is a closer look at the other half of the scroll.

Be sure to enter Dusty Attic's January sketch challenge for a chance to win some beautiful chipboard!

What a gorgeous, feminine lay-out! I really love the mix of black and pink.
