Cousins - Sketchabilities Challenge



I love a good sketch challenge and the current 'Sketchabilities' sketch is awesome (as they always are!). Here is my take on it.
I found this photo on my sons 'facebook' page and I knew at once that I was going to scrap it. It was taken at the last Rhythm and Vines music festival when Chris and his cousins met up and spent some time together.
I water-coloured, inked, stenciled and stamped my background - using a 12x12 sheet of thick cardstock to minimise warping as I spritzed a LOT of water onto my background to get the watercolour effect.
I made a photo stack from lots of paper pieces and ephemera to mat the photo and to raise it up from the background. Here are some close ups:



Have a great week and don't forget to check out the Sketchabilities blog yourself if you have a little spare time.
