A Sketching Idea

Hello all, I have just finished off a sketch for Totally Addicted To Sketch. The Design Team puts up two sketches a month, they run for 14 days each. This is the first one I entered, so I figured I could manage that and keep on going with the 52 Pick Up at LSBS (which I am shamefully dragging the chain at...).

So, I have decided to use the beloved family pooch, Shady, for this layout. He likes to think he is more human than dog, and commands our audience and attention at all times (sort of like children and sick men.......). Anyhow, I loved this photo, taken beside the back door. Shady just loves it when he sees you coming, beckoning your attention, so how appropriate that he be saying "Pull up a Chair..."

None of the gear used in the layout is new, except for the chip bone which I got at Retreat. The scroll-ish die cut cardstock flower I have had for yonks, so I traced it and cut out another one to fit in with the sketch. I left the end petals solid on this one so the two weren't completely the same, and to blend in with the different coloured paper flowers on each one. A bit of sanding, tearing, inking and painting and we're done. ......if only it came together that quick!!

Thanks for looking....
