Simple Sketches #6 is Up!


Come check out the latest sketch at Simple Sketches! It's another fabulous 3-photo sketch, but you can easily stretch it out to 7!

Here it is, along with my take on it. It's a layout about the houseboat we stayed on during our 5 days in Amsterdam this summer. It was such a fun experience! We LOVED hanging out on the boat terrace for breakfast and at the end of the day, just catching up on things and watching the boats go by! The title means "Living on a Houseboat Like the Locals". We actually had two women walking by one morning, as we were having breakfast, stop and ask us if they could take pictures of us on our boat! lol! We were chuckling inside, tourists taking pictures of tourists! ;-)

For the background, I colored modeling paste with brown acrylic paint to match the kraft background and used it with a "crackle" stencil (Prima by Finnabair, love it!!). I then gently inked with an old Pinecone Versacolor cube (a darker brown; didn't want it to be too "juicy" to get ink everywhere else) to make the crackle effect stand out more. I made some faux stitching with a Cutter Bee piercing bug (because my sewing machine is still working all wonky! gotta get it fixed!). I got the idea for the banner with the brads with this pin.

Go check out the rest of the reveal here and have a go at the sketch while you're at it!

Here's last week's sketch, also a 3-pic sketch! Love the staggering and diagonal slant!

Enjoy your weekend! Hope it's a scrappy one!
