October Once Upon A Sketch challenge

I'm very proud of the beauty I made for the Once Upon A... Sketch challenge this month !

Take a look at the sketch first :

and now my layout :

What can we find here ? Oh ! Surprise ! A K&Company paper (still Que Sera Sera collection)! But I did work on this one... Gesso, stamps (Prima Marketing and Inkidadinkado) with brown ink (Stazon), stencil (Want2Scrap), Shimmerz Texturez paint in Sandy Stone (look at the beautiful grain of the bricks), ocean ink spray (Mister Huey's), Lace (Hobby Lobby), a loosely braided twine (Recollections), I Am Roses flowers distressed with Colorbox ink and Prima Marketing chalk, and pink crystal sand !

Have some close-ups...

the loosely braided twine...

I'm still short on supplies since my moving hasn't left Aberdeen yet, so I did print the title and the journaling instead of looking in my stash for alphas and journaling spots.

See the layers ? Paper plus gesso plus stamp, plus stenciling, plus inking plus crystal sand !

Once upon a sketch have a bunch of sponsors with great prizes. I hope this layout can win one of them !

Have a good day !
