Once Upon a Sketch - January

Here's my take on the Sketch at Once Upon a Sketch
I've used papers and embellishments from the Studio Calico Printshop range. 

Here's the sketch.
And the Journalling criteria is about a lesson.  My son getting sunburnt last year!
Hopefully he will now always remember the sunscreen!

The background is made using a Finnabair stencil from Prima and Dylusions sprays.  The black
outline is with watercolour pencils.

Thanks for stopping by to see my work.
