I’m continuing my trend from yesterday of using Concord and 9th with the latest sketch from Freshly Made Sketches. This is week 3 of our celebration leading up to sketch 400 and we have pulled out sketch 300. It is such fun to see another older sketch with a new eye.
I started with a based of Fabriano watercolor paper and painted on a swatch in this beautiful fall yellow (why yes, I am craving the crisp fall air!). While it dried I cut some leaves with the Layering Leaves die from watercolor paper and painted them in an ombré from brown through red to orange. The sentiment comes from Hello Lovely and I used a banner die (yes, I was that lazy) to make sure it was cut perfectly and then chopped off the ends.
Once everything was dry, I simply layered it up and attached to the base. I added a bit of twine to comply with the sketch a bit better and a few sequins, because I could.
I hope you’ll join us this week and then get ready! Next week is going to be really awesome. Really! We can hardly wait. Until then, thanks for stopping in today. See you soon!
