Crazy 4 U – Creative Embellishments July Challenge + Sketchabilities 142

What’s better than an awesome Creative Embellishments Challenge? Combining it with a fabulous sketch by Sketchabilities! CE is sponsoring Sketch #142, so there are even more ways to win a GC to the Creative Embellishments store! 😀

For the Creative Embellishments July challenge, you just need to combine the inspiration photo with the added twist of adding something wood to your project (layout, card, tag, art journal page, altered piece, etc). This month, we were given the option to also combine the challenge with sketch #142. To check out what everyone came up with, be sure to check out this post on the CE blog: July Challenge

This was such a fun challenge for me! I love Karan’s sketches and am always inspired by them. 😀 I was further inspired by the colors, fence, and flowers from our inspo image. The blades of the windmill also reminded me of mesh, so I used drywall tape that I painted in the background of my design. CE stamps are so much fun to work with, so I used several of them to create my background which had started out as smooth white paper. I used watered down Distress stains for the base and Distress ink and Stazon ink with CE stamps to create my own background for this page. The chippies (flourish and fence) and drywall tape were altered using acrylic paint (both liquitex and Lumiere). For the twist, I left my CE wood veneer pieces bare so you can really see the intricate detailing on them, which they’re known for. 😀

Here’s what I came up with:
