August 1st Challenge at Once Upon a Sketch

Been away from my scrapbook room for quite some time because of some missing mojos.  To address my lag, I went back to one of the few usual sites I frequent for some artistic boost, Once upon a Sketch, not only for the great sketches but for the love I get from the people there.  

August 1st Challenge is up.  The sketch provided great potentials and my right brain got the simulation it needed.

August 1st Sketch:

My take:

I am currently in love with the use of mix media to make the brick-like element as introduced by Ms. Iris Uy.  This was made by mixing gesso, pumice gel and paint of chosen color.  Spread it based on the desired shape.  Scrape the excess mixture to form parallel lines and vertical lines in alternate spacing for that brick-like look.   Special thanks to Ms. Karen Ngo for supplying my gesso and pumice gel.

 Journal: You Measure Up to a perfect day. We thank God for your for every single day.
