Sketchbook 365 'Love This View'

It's another doozy of a sketch at Sketchbook365 this month.

My take is of my DGS on our morning walk with the dog. He loves trees!! He gets so excited when there is a slight breeze and the leaves sway :0) 

On this particular morning his little legs were going ten to the dozen so I took a photo of him and then pointed my phone up to see what he wonder he loves it :) 

Don't faint, but I am once again giving the non white background a go and this time I love it!!! Maybe it's because it's not patterned....who knows!

I really put my Distress Stains to use on this one. Don't you just love it when you rekindle a romance with a long forgotten scrappy friend? I also found these sweet little transparent stickers from Glitz Design :)))

I am thrilled to bits with how the leaf die coped with some Balsa wood.....and my homemade enamel dots!

I diluted some Alcohol Ink with water and colour washed the tag as well as dying the string and flicking onto my page. All credit for digging these products out has to go to Lizzy who reminded me during one FB chat that I even own these items!! OCD does not go well with OAP!!!

Thanks so much for popping in today, I hope to see your take on the sketch in the gallery :)

  1. So sweet Ali, and the background is great with a few splats and spots. I'm usually a white or cream gal so I might be brave like you and shake it up a bit!!

  2. Heehee!!!! LOVING the splats....& the green is just perfect.......& look at that view he had! No wonder his legs got such a workout.....BALSA WOOD....really????!!! AMAZING...looks fabbo....& how did you do those enamel drops? I have been working sooo hard & long & given up...I tried nail polish, but it didn't gloop up like yours....or is a 'secret'.....awwww c'mon.....'fess up! Tell all:):):) Anyways, it's a brill take on a brill sketch & I just love that it starts mid way thru the month, so hopefully I'll have time to join in....raving's late & my leg HURTS!!!
