Blast from the Past

Today is a new reveal day at Let's Get Sketchy!  Team B is up for our first reveal of the month, using an adorable sketch by Brenshevia.  I've been getting a little bored with my regular photos lately, so for this layout I chose photos from when I was a little girl.  I'm trying to scan some older photos, but of course, my Scanner is on the fritz, so it's been a slow process.  Here's a look at what I created:

I attempted something on this layout, that I don't usually do...watercolor.  Don't get me wrong, I love the look of watercolors, I just don't like what it does to my paper.  The wrinkling drives me crazy.  But, I decided to throw caution to the wind and diluted some Mister Huey's Mint Julep mist with water and painted it in the background.  It added a subtle look, which I am okay with and I loved the end result.  I changed up the sketch by using two vertical photos in place of the horizontal half photo placement.  And I'm not really sure where those circles came from, but I kept wanting to add some stitching and couldn't really figure out how to incorporate it.  Then I thought, "why not faux stitching?" I grabbed a cup and started doodling some faux stitched overlapping circles.  And as you can tell, I like to use a more modern look with my heritage/vintage photos.  I mixed some My Mind's Eye, American Crafts, Jillibean Soup, and Chic Tags to create the look on my layout.
