I haven't had the opportunity to play along with the Technostamper Sketch Challenge for weeks now. I am pleased to be a part of it today, albeit a little late in the day!
I love this sketch. It was open to so many possibilities! I decided to work outside my comfort zone with the palette I used today, too. I am always more comfortable with muted tones, not so much on the subtle side. This apricot color is one that I rarely use. Since my focal point uses the Faux Leafing Technique from the February 2009 issue of the Technique Junkie Newsletter, and the faux leafing mimics the apricot color so nicely, how could I NOT use it? I love the look of this technique -- so much like gold leafing (and cheaper and easier, too!). A close-up of the Faux Leafing is on the right. Have you tried this technique yet?
Go to Mary Jo's site to see the other players and the sketch, too, if you would like to play along.
Hope your Monday is happy!
