A Leap of Faith - Kreative Koncepts sketch challenge

Check out this cool sketch from Kreative Koncepts.  I have so many holiday photos to sketch that when I saw a 4-photo page I was immediately hooked!
I chose this set of photos taken from a day that we spent at a water hole in the forest. The older kids had a blast jumping from the river banks into the water.
I used the gorgeous 'Sandy toes' collection from Kaisercraft for my page as the colours were perfect for my watery theme. I layered assorted paper pieces on my background paper then I swiped white gesso across the lot to give a distressed, beach bleached look. I built up the texture using a stencil and texture paste, then inked and stamped over the whole page after the paste had thoroughly dried.

I added my photos, a title using 'thickers' and journaling strips to tell the story of our day.

I added little clusters of rub-ons, stickers and veneers to highlight my photos.

Thanks for visiting my blog - I hope that I have inspired you to try out this sketch and make a dent in that pile of 'to scrap' photos that I know you all have waiting for attention!
