Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge #83

Something fun and totally different from me today! Taylor made this really fun sketch that I just knew I had to do something "different". This is for my daughter's locker. She is in high school this year (grade 9) and I thought it would make her smile when she opened her locker.
The chipboard piece is from Crafty Secrets and I covered it with my new Melissa Frances paper.
I laid down a Tim Holtz mask and airbrushed the pattern in with my Y21 marker.
I did all the stitching and laying down my elements BEFORE adhering it to my chipboard piece.
I thought the stitching followed the sketch pretty well. The rest well.....

A couple of my favorite elements are this picture of Marie. I took it when we visited the Calgary Zoo this summer. I just resized it, printed it on my printer and then framed it! Take time to read the little rub on quote too....love that Dr. Suess!
Thanks for indulging me in a little bit of abstract thinking today in regards to the sketch! I sure had fun!
