I love Nadia's sketches at Once Upon A Sketch, and couldn't resist playing along with the January one. The journaling prompt is "Lesson Learnt", and I had to search around for a photo that I thought summed up I lesson I had learned.
Here is the layout I came up with:
I love the way the layered bubbles turned out on the background, and think I will do a tutorial on the technique sometime soon.
Lots of gorgeous Blue Fern Studios chipboard on this layout!
I started by covering the hearts (from the Blue Fern Bits pack) with an uneven coat of gesso, then added several colours of Gelatos and stamping for lots of dimension.
The Bits of Honey (and other BFS Textures sets) are ideal for tucking in here and there. I've painted mine with some periwinkle Twinkling H2Os, then touched them up with a little bit of gesso on my finger.
I cut the hollow hearts from the Chunky Heart Panel and added them into my layers.
Here is the lovely sketch at OUAS this month:
Thanks for stopping by!
