Park Princess

I really wanted to play along with the August Sketchy Challenge at Canadian Scrapbooker before August was over.... and how did it get to be the end of August already?!

I've been using some pics I had printed from 2010 - it's amazing how fast time flies and how quick little ones grow! We used to go to this park a lot, but last year with flooding in Alberta most of this park was destroyed and it's been closed for construction. Amie has always loved going to the park, and her love of all things pink and purple and princessy resulted in the title Park Princess.

August Sketch

This colour scheme is much more muted than I usually do, but a nice change.  I used mostly the "B" sides of the 3 coordinating papers I chose.

I stamped on watercolour paper and used Distress Markers to watercolour in the stamped flowers.  The butterfly was a bright purple and didn't really match the paper so I covered it with pink Distress Paint and when that didn't completely cover it I used white embossing powder, resulting in a muted pink colour - perfect!

I wanted my journaling to be readable, but not stand out too much, so I wrote it on top of the patterned paper.
