Twisted Sketches has revealed its latest sketch, #127, and the twist is “chipboard.” Be sure to head over to the site to grab the sketch and see all the other design team members’ beautiful examples, then create something of your own and link it up! 🙂
Here is what I created using this great new sketch:
I chose to use four 4×3-inch photos rather than the two 4x6s that the sketch called for because I liked how these shots really highlighted how much we resemble one another! Over the years people have mentioned the similarity, but I usually don’t see it as well as I do in these photos.
It was 2006 and Mom had come from North Carolina to spend Thanksgiving and my birthday with us. On this day we took a little drive to nearby Frederickburg, where you can get a good dose of German heritage and antiques shopping. So we spent a lovely day window shopping. 🙂
Because of the chipboard twist on this sketch, I decided it was time to pull out my never-used Tim Holtz distress crackle paint to antique it a bit. It was fun! After the paint dried into small cracks, I rubbed Tim Holtz distress inks (in iced spruce, evergreen bough and crushed olive) into the cracks to highlight them. Here’s a closeup of the result. I will certainly be using this technique again!
