Family Layout - DT Sketches In Thyme

Hello everyone! I hope you will be able to join the challenge this week at Sketches In Thyme. This sketch was so much fun and I decided to take the plunge and do some mixed media. I had to practice on another sheet but it payed off because I really like how it turned out.

Here is the fabulous sketch:

I began with the Snapshot Stack because it has these polaroid frames like the sketch. Next, I went through my photos and chose the one I did because the frames would fit if I cut the photo in half. The colours also went nicely with the Snapshot Stack so I continued to work from it. I used the plastic packaging technique with the red paint and then splattered a few colours. I used texture paste mixed with black paint and a stencil for the upper arrows.

I'm also going to play along with the Anything Goes Mix It Up Monday at Paper Issues.
