'Gaze' - a layout for the Inkido August sketch challenge.

Hi friends!
 It's me Bente, back to share a layout with you for Ulrikas beautiful sketch challenge.
Most of the papers I used are from Inkido's  Beautiful Memories collection.

Here is the page I made:

And here are a couple of close ups for you:
That cute ruffled flower is by Inkido and come in a collection pack called Harmony Flowers (pink).

(This post has been updated with new 'better' photographs)

-I started with two sheets of paper, one forming the border around the dotted paper.
 -I added a layer of gesso. 
-When dry I sprayed some mist on and smeared it out with my fingers. 
-I used a stencil to get the dots.
-On top I placed a sheer layer of organza.
-All the layers were fastened using my sewing machine.
-Then it was time to add the 'crossed' element of the sketch and the matted photo on top.
-VOILA!! Time to embellish!

I would really love to see what you come up  with for the challenge.
This truly is a very inviting and easy to do shetch that I know you are going to like!
