Sketchabilities #154 October Reveal

Sunday, October 14, 2018

Welcome back, y'all!  Just stopping back in to share a brand new, sketch challenge from Sketchabilities.  Let's just get right to it.
I started this page by adding a little, white gesso to the pine, polka dot, base page.  I don't usually choose such a dark background to begin with; but the striking mountain scene, behind those polka dots, fit my photograph perfectly.  And I adore the end result!  Once that was dry, I topped it with a trio of prints, all anchored with gold-threaded, straight, machine stitching, as well as my photograph, which was matted with white cardstock and backed with a snippet of cheesecloth for texture.  I also tucked a couple of tickets, both of which were laced with white string, tied in a bow and knot respectively, under the right side of the paper stack, before using one of them to etch the Mount Rushmore, South Dakota, location.
The "PRESENT & in awe", die-cut title was popped up, with foam tape and over a cluster of hand-cut, from a patterned print, blossoms, in the bottom, right corner of the design.
The opposite corner received a slightly smaller dose of that same hand-cut, patterned, floral print, topped with a "WANDER THIS WAY", die-cut arrow, popped up with foam tape, and "VAYCAY" flair button, backed with a tangle of gold thread.
A "PHOTO RECORD" Sept. 28, 2011, cardstock sticker and scattering of gold and mustard die-cut and wood veneer stars complete the look.
Here's your October Sketch #154 to get you off and creating in the right direction.
I'm so sad to announce that this is Sketchabilities final challenge.  Karan is super busy with a new, life adventure; and there hasn't been quite the support for this reboot as we all had hoped.  Please don't let that discourage you from using this gorgeous design to inspire one more page for your albums, though.  We can't wait to see what you all cook up!  To be considered for the Featured Designer spot, you must add your entry to the linky by November 10, 2018.  Thanks so much for stopping by; and have a blessed Sunday, friends!
