August Sketchy Thursday

Here is my sketch and layout for the Scraptastic Club Blog's Sketchy Thursday challenge. Since there is a week to complete the August challenges, hop over to the blog and give it a try, for a chance to win a $20 gift credit to spend in the Scraptastic Club Shop!

For my layout I have used the August Scraptastic Club "I found a Boy" kit, add on kit, and stamps. The stamps are super fun this month, check them out HERE. This is a photo of my son when he was a drum major in college and the colors of the uniforms and flags for this show were perfect for these papers. I stamped using orange pigment ink and splattered with a few colors of mists. I don't know if you do this, but for me it's the fastest way to spatter without having to do any clean up. I just unscrew the top of the mister bottle and since the tube that draws up the paint is drippy, I sort of fling it at my page and just put the bottle back together and I am done. Ok - I should say that I always use a sheet of poster board behind my layout so I don't splatter my whole desk, as that has also happened. :)
