Stuck?! Sketches! DT - 15th March - The Outback

Welome back to my blog today where I'm sharing a DT page for

I hope you will feel inspired to join in and be eligible for one of the lovely prizes.

Stash busting is still high on my list for this year, so I've use an ancient Basic Grey paper
for the background, Scarlett's letter.  The patterned papers are also Basic Grey.

The chipboard title is also ancient - it's from Scrap FX
I treated it with Prima Rust paste to reflect the colours of the landscape.

  2. What a great take on the sketch amazing photo, and the treatment you gave the chipboard to give it a rustic and aged look.. And had to smile at your use of "ancient" papers, I think I have a few from the dark ages too in my stash! Hehe! Thanks for your lovely comments on my blog too!

  3. Brilliant! I was looking to see where the 4 photos were, heehee....took my brain a minute to adjust to the long skinny pic. But what a PERFECT one for this sketch! Loooove the 'earthy' bush tones you've used. That BG pp works to perfection!!!

  4. Like Lizzy took my brain a minute to work out the picture (glad I wasn't the only one) The photo is perfect for the sketch, and amazing . Love the Earthy tones you have created for the chipboard piece. A Art Piece , just gorgeous
