Sketch Challenge 1

I'm loving this new UK magazine scrap365. They always have beautiful and inspiring sketches at the back of each issue. On top of that, they have a monthly sketch challenge. More details of it can be found on their website:
This month sketch challenge is as shown below:

And I had 2 rendition of it.

The first one is more technical. Using G45 back to school papers, decided to make a layout for Chloe's Shichida teacher. This teacher had been with Chloe since her first lesson in Shichida. It's very sad that she leaving.

For the background, I used a stamp to create a resist using gesso. Then rub the background with Victorian velvet, very similar technique to the altered mooncake box.

I've also distress all the edges of the paper to give it a more crumbled look.

The wooden embellishment was distressed using vintage photo and later a thick coat of rock candy crackle paint. I like the way the stain bleed into the wooden embellishment. This is a technique I've learnt from one of the design class in Laines.

Guess what does IOQ means? Hahaha, it's meant to represent 10 - Q that is Ten(Thank) Q (you). Well, I didn't have numbers in that embellishment. It's all alphabets. So that's the best I could have created. I've also topped the whole thing up with glossy accent, which used to be my favourite item when I first started scrapping.

Materials Used: G45 Back to school pattern papers, G45 metal flowers, G45 Back to school stamp, Distress Stains includes Victorian velvet and Vintage photo, rock candy crackle paint, Ranger glossy accent.
