A Step by Step Version of MCS Contest Sketch...

Happy Saturday...Hope all is well in your neck of the woods this beautiful weekend...well. it's a beautiful day in Alabama...perfect temps and gorgeous blue skies.

I have a Step by Step of the awesome My Creative Sketches Contest Sketch #2 for you today. I piled so many flowers and embellishments on that you really have to look close to see the Sketch, so I thought I would share my process...Hope You Enjoy....

I used papers from Alla Prima to make this LO....You'll need some white and gold paint and the Brick Mask...this is a Prima Mask.

I used a sponge brush and painted the white over the mask first...after that dries I used a slim paint brush and just randomly made a few strokes of color on the masked area.

Next I cut the leafy image from one of the Alla Prima papers...adhere it down first as below...

 I layered several of the papers below, scalloped one to mimic the sketch...Adhere on top of the leafy cut out...

I punched a few Green Dot circles to layer behind the scallop for a little more interest and color...

Added a 4 x 6 photo and a few more leafy cut outs...

Raw Wood Fence I got at Michaels...Painted about 5" of to use on this LO...

I adhered the fence and added a Prima floral vine cut into 2 pieces....

The next few pics will show the Flower Cluster Close Ups...

Now for the Completed LO...

Check out the Contest at My Creative Sketches...Lots of fun and Super Prizes to be won!!!
