Skissedilla sketch # 222 - "Lazy Days"

Hello Sunday hello you!

Beeautiful day in Stockholm today, had breakfast out on the balcony wrapped into a blanket. Autumn feel lingering in the air.

Been scrapping behind the scenes again and trying to get ahead of my deadlines as September is going to be as busy as May and June were. The conferences at work are gaining momentum, which means busy busy days in the office for me.

Really itching to do some stuff just for myself, have several ideas for projects laid out all over our apartment. Hubbs is huffing and puffing over the mess and the cats are having a field day with all the stuff one can push off the table and play with :)

Back to Sunday, which means reveal day over at Norwegian Skissedilla HERE

Today's sketch is made by Laetitia 

I flipped the sketch to the right. The chevrons are in one of the papers, what looks flat in the main photo is actually triple-raised so check out one of the photos taken from the side and you'll se what I mean.

Here is my take - "Lazy Days in the Sun"


All papers are from Polish UHK Gallery HERE

The collection is called Olive Grove.
Beautiful thick papers in shades of 
teal, turqoise, cream and palest green.

I found the photo on internet, it's taken on the Swedish west coast.

I wanted to make something in the soft hues of the water, 
the cliffs and patches of mild green that
can be seen in the photos. 
(Same photos, I just mirrored one of them)

Here you see the triple layering of the chevrons.

I also used hazy green Glimmer Glaze on some masked "bubbles".

In addition to the Prima and Kaiser Craft blooms, 
I was dead set on using this 
fantastic large canvas bloom from Petaloo. 
Reminds me of canvas awnings and deck chairs. 

Love Finnabair's acrylic "bubbles" !

A short post today that marks the start of a period of almost daily blogposts up till mid-September as from the end of next week.

Leaving for a conference tomorrow and won't be back in town till Thursday, have unfortunately no access to internet where I'm going. 

My next blogpost will therefore be on Thursday, 29 August. See you then if you want to!
