"Your smile" by Anthea

Hi all again. 
Yesterday the challenges for the October Cybercrop went up in The Scrap Suite.  My challenge this month is a sketch challenge based on this LO that I created of my beautiful niece (who is growing up way too quickly). 
I would like to show you some close ups of this LO.  Being this LO was all about getting messy for me and adding tons and tons of colour I thought I would start by showing you a close up of that gorgeous number stencil from D-lish.  I love it.  So perfectly grungy for any LO.  I started out by using white texture paste with it and putting it here there and everywhere (not caring if it was the 'right way up'). Once I had finished I found I wanted even more colour, so I spread on some pink paint.  I love the random effect of it all over the page. 
I then used a piece of hessian from a past D-lish JAP kit as my backing (it was a perfect match for the blue paint on the LO).  I think this piece of hessian came from the "Off The Wall" kit here.  I then added some bubble creative cuts and just one flower to my main cluster to make it pop.  This flower is a wild rose, one of my very favourite flowers in the store - you can get them in a variety of colours and they are ever soooo pretty.  I found the white creative cuts were not standing out as much as I would like, so I kind of went a little wild and drew around them roughly with a charcoal pencil.  I like that it highlights them a little more. 
I then added my title.  I used puffy alphabet stickers for this.  Again, for some reason they were not popping as much as I wanted from the page, so I roughly drew around them to highlight them.  I finished the title with my handwriting.  I regret that because I hate my hand writing, but I also know that somewhere in the future someone will love seeing it as much as I love seeing the handwriting of my grandparents - so instead of trying to cover it up,  I stuck with it.
I then added some pink enamel dots from D-lish and added a big sketched pencil line around the page to bring it all together. 
This is a very simple but bright and fun LO that I really like.  I hope you like it too.  I hope you give the sketch challenge a go this month, as I would love to see what you do with it to make it your own.  Also - don't forget to check out the other three challenges this month for your chance to win a great prize.
Till next time...
take care.
