Skissedilla sketch 215 - "Nothing Beats Coffee"

Hello again!

Time for a new sketch from Skissedilla! They always have room for different interpretation, so many cool options as you can see from the DT's work HERE

So much that I made two pages based on the same sketch and the same photos. I will share my other page with you in the next few days.

I have had a big box of Gelatos sitting on my desk for several months but haven't used them. Now was a good time as any so out the came. Ooopsadaisy! had no idea they would be so rich and cover so much! but hey, I'm still learning. Be gentle with me when you look at my page :))

First the sketch.

Here's my experimental take on sketch 215 that went live on 16 June.

Papers used going from bottom and up:

KaiserCraft "Magnolia Grove" (green)
KaiserCraft "From This Day" (amber)
Basic Gray "Piccadilly" (blue)
Pink Paislee "Hope Chest"
Fancy Pants and Pink Paislee clippings from my desk for the smaller pieces under the photo

I have also used the Blue Fern Studios Shabby Layered Frame. 

The bottom piece was painted and misted in different golden yellow and amber tones to bring out the camp fire.I also used Gelato in "Butter Cream" on it.

The ornate top piece was painted in Glimmer Glaze Palo Verde, then painted in pale blue acrylic paint before I randomly added acrylic paint in gold and gesso on it.

The masked swirl was first painted in Gelato "Blueberry" before I aplied pale blue acrylic paint over it.

Shabby Layered Frame (075186)

Unexpectedly rich colours covered most of the papers, but here you can just about guess the paper is from PP Hope Chest. Some Gelato in "Tangerine" in there too.

 Prima goodies of course. The butterflies are from PP "Hope Chest".

Everything was heavily misted in TA Gold. The pooling IRL is absolutely heavenly.

And that's it! I like the effect of the Gelatos but have to experiment some more to get the hang of them.

Be good, be happy, take care of you!

Toodelipip! xoxo Eila
