Captured Memories- Creative Scrappers Sketch # 222

For my “2 Crafty” reveal please scroll down to my next post.
I’m here with another sketch reveal for Creative Scrappers. I really liked this sketch because I could concentrate on one corner of the page and leave some negative space on the other. I used these fantastic BoBunny Weekend Market papers and a very serious picture of my son that I captured while he wasn’t looking. I think he was upset about something and sat down to pout. I snapped a photo right away and this is the result!!

The splatters, drips and tea stain marks were made with actual Orange Peacock tea bags. I learned this really neat technique at Finnabair’s seminar last month. You basically take the tea bags and smash them on the paper for splattered effect. Then using a mug or any circular lid, you can make these tea stains on the page. Its so much fun!!!
I used 3 pieces of 2 Crafty Chipboard on this page: The Brick wall, The cogs and the title: Captured Moments. I painted the wall in brown paint and cut some of the ends off. For the cogs, I inked them in acrylic paint and then crackle medium. Finally for the title I used brown flock which I’ve never used before and then dabbed some paint on top.

My journaling specifically explains my son’s mood on that day.
