Enjoy the journey

Good morning, scrappy friends! Today the revealing of sketch #25 at 2 Broke Girls Scraps has gone live. So today I'm sharing my design team layout that I created for inspiration.
To start, I toned down the background with a sponge and some gesso, going back with a sponge and some inks to bring in some of the peach, orange, and rust tones from the photo. Then in place of the circle element from the sketch I did a bit of light stenciling. Once that was dry I really started to pile on the layers, finishing it off with a few splatters of Heidi Swapp color shine in peach. For the title chippie I used the same inks that I used in the background to give it a bit of an ombre effect similiar to the photo. 
And here is this week's fantastic sketch that I flipped
Thanks so much for taking a peek! I hope that I've inspired you even just a bit to join us. I can't wait to see your creations based off the sketch. Hope you have a wonderful week!
