Camping in the Living Room – dt layout for Let’s Capture These Sketches #127

For Let’s Capture These Sketches #127 I got to work with a fabulous Natalie Roy sketch. For my take on it, I decided to break out my stamps and inks and make my own background. Lately I’ve been craving time to do some art journaling, so I think that influenced where I took the layout. Unfortunately, when I went to take a pic of it though, my photos all came out looking either washed out or too dark. Direct sunlight = washed out and indirect sunlight = dark. I settled for a pic I took of it taped to the refrigerator! lol The glare on the left of photo on the tent is from the kitchen window, not my flash. Here’s what I came up with:


AC white cardstock
Distress Ink
Pitt Artist Pen
Stazon Ink
Fancy Pants stamps
Pink Paislee wood alphas
Dusty Attic Grass Cluster #1 (from the STTG Store)
Acrylic paint
OA mini market alpha stickers
Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist


Helmar Premium Craft Glue

This is Natalie’s awesome sketch:
