ScrapFriends sketch

I love this sketch from ScrapFriends and just had to give it a try this month!
Here is my attempt

It is much more grungy than I usually do.....but it came together quickly and was so much fun to do. I used a mix of old and new supplies. The background is an old piece of BG Recess, the other pp's are from a Crate paper Random 6x6 pad.....I am loving the small pads lately. I also used Crafter's Workshop stencils, Adirondack Colourwashes and a very dark brown inkpad. The camera stamp is a hand carved one of mine and stamped on cord cardstock which creates the striped look.

Not sure if you can see the white chevron markings on the background....they were done using a home made chevron stencil and Atellier Modelling Compound. I will most definitely be using that again....I can see so many uses for it!


  1. Very nice. I'm into 'grunge' at the moment. I can see the raised chevron quite well. I love texture paste, great stuff.
