October Sketch Challenge at The Scrapbook Store

Hi everyone! Just a quick post to share the October Sketch Challenge at The Scrapbook Store.  I've decided to explore my 'inner messy side' again. Lol!  The people who know me well enough will know that I don't cope very well with 'mess', but I am getting better at it..... I think. :) Some parts of the process didn't go too well, but it created opportunities for unique embellishment placement. ;)

I used 2 different mists for my background.  One of them is 'California Poppy Gold' from Lindys Stamp Gang (which I just LOVE) and the other is the more vibrant 'Postbox Red' from Dylusions Ink
For the branches, I used a combination of template work as well as using my Silhouette machine.  The flowers are a mixture of Prima, Petaloo and Green Tara.  I love my gorgeous new Scrap FX 'Random Dots' stencil.  Can see myself using it over and over again. :)

And here is the gorgeous sketch, designed by Melinda Spinks. :)
I hope you find a moment to play along.  There's a $40 store voucher up for grabs and the winner gets determined by random draw, so anyone can win!  Just load your take on the sketch into the Gallery before the end of October.  Would love to see your entry!
That's all for today.  Thank you for visiting and have a wonderful week!
Until next time.

Lol re your strategic placement of embellies. I know what you mean! I love that you've taken a step towards the dark (messy) side! It'll be interesting where this leads you.
