This month over at Once Upon a Sketch the theme is "Lesson Learnt". I couldn't wait to do this sketch challenge as I had the perfect photo to use!
The sketch was a great guide. Another easy to follow sketch from Nadia Cannizzo. The background took all week to do. Not because it was difficult but because I've been really busy this week. I'd do one layer and then leave it a day to dry, then I'd come back the next night and do the next layer and so on until it was ready for photo's and embellishments.
I had bought some Prima Junkyard Findings car parts and had been waiting for just the right project to incorporate them into.
The background paper is from a Tim Holtz collection of 12x12's called "Crowded Attic". I love these papers for rustic layouts.
I also experimented with my Faber Castell Gelatos for the first time on this project. It gave a real richness of colour in spots throughout the background.
My journaling is hand written as usual and this time I've tried to use a scrawly font. The sentiment is a bit cheeky as our 4WD mate will often take a chance. Sometimes it pays off, sometimes it doesn't. Either way it's always fun.
Thanks for popping over and checking my challenge sketch piece out.
