Artist Layout for ScrapFriends
Recently I got this photo of my Grandma Skip in the mail. Well, actually I got it twice, once in a Christmas card and a second time in a thank you card, but who is counting! ;-)
Anyhow, since we had been talking about a recent trip my parents took to visit my Grandma, I thought I'd make a page of what they were excited about.
She has always been a painter as long as I've known her.
I mean, she's done other stuff to pay the bills, but she can do super cool things with oil paints and water color.
I can imagine she might feel like I did when we moved. Very lost in the art department and wondering where to start!
Well, a sketch is always a nice jumping off point. I used this one from ScrapFriends for their January sketch challenge.
I won some 13 Arts Ayeeda Paints on the Facebook Once Upon A Sketch page the other day and decided to give them a try. Creamy pretty goodness!
You can see some of that lovely paint goodness sneaking out from under my wee banners which was an addition I made to the sketch.
You can also see a feather I tucked in there! Goes along with my Lizzy Hill cut Grandma out style! ;-)
Happy Hump Day!
