October Sketch at "Stuck"

Phew!! Got this one in by the skin of my teeth.
Here is the sketch over at Stuck:

And here is my take. Once again looking back through the archives.... no I am not a chronological scrapper! This is my youngest who is now 12!


I used the hexagonal chippie as a background stencil and hated what I did (I knew I was going to have one of those days!!!!). Then I smeared a bit of Gesso, and used embossing powder on it to get some texture, and yet I was still not out of the woods! I could see the sketch disappearing before my eyes!!!

 I gave the wordlet a coat of paint then outlined it with a marker.

 The arrows are from the Scrap FX arrow border, all cut up, they were actually left over from another page. Love it when I use up all my scraps!
Still did not like the embossing, so used some small punchinella and white paint to add to lessen the "blob" effect (if you know what I mean).

 Just had to add some more PP chevrons because they make me happy!!!

Trying to show you the metallic finish of the embossing powder.

The page then needed a little more red so the spinners were just perfect for the job after I tried every other embellishment I had in my stash.... I was starting to get a little frustrated, and was happy to see the end of this one I gotta say and I am still not too sure about it!
Anyway my job here is done, thanks for stopping by on your Bloggy travels hope to see you back again soon!!!
