Father & Son

I'm very happy to be November's featured designer at Stick It Down. I hope that something in my work will be of inspiration to you and that you'll play along with us this month.

The little guy in my layout has an abundance of talented musicians in his lineage, in fact both Mom and Dad are very accomplished musicians. It looks to me like he's going to carry that talent into his generation.

The sketch I used for inspiration is the double layout featured at Stick It Down this month. I found it so intriguing and unique. Image a 24 x 12 inch canvas with little suggested for pictures. It opened things up for playing with different media.

I chose ink/stamp and metallic paint. The metallic drew in the gold and silver of the instruments. I first covered the area with an open weave burlap and using a finger ink dauber 'pushed' paint through the burlap here and there. Some musically themed embellishments, stars for his future success, and washi tape, seemed to finish things off nicely.

There's  a great card and single page sketch released today as well.
Maybe you'll 'get your craft on' and play along with all three.
