Dusty Attic MAY Sketch

Every month Dusty Attic chipboard has a fantastic sketch challenge and each of the design team members reveal examples throughout the month. Here is my sketch layout for May. The picture was taken over 60 years ago in Portugal and my father is the toddler (beside my grandfather). We don't have many family photos like this - so this one is very precious to me.

I rotated the beautiful sketch like this:

Here is a close-up of the chipboard. I used distress ink and clear crackle vanish on the chipboard pieces.

A stunning take on the sketch with a wonderful vintage feel. Love the monochromatic tones.
