With Wonder and Anticipation - Sketchabilities reveal

Its time for another sketch reveal at Sketchabilities. Karan Gerber always amazes me with the most awesome sketches....
I mirrored the sketch to suit my photos. Here is my take on the sketch ....
This is my daughter Naomi on a trip to San Francisco with her college writing peers. She has a thing for birds and I am sure she was in heaven when she found this mural on the side of a building in Chinatown. I used the Miss Morgan pattern paper from Quick Quotes and lots of different techniques, like distressing, misting, and more. Here are some closeups
I painted the swirl chipboard pieces with some teal blue acrylic paint and once it was dry painted it with a white crackle paint. Then I inked the edges with Quick Quote Powderpuff ink and applied some stickles for some shimmer. I also used my Copic markers to color the white pearl in the center of the flowers and added some stickles there too.
Here you can see some misting I did in the doily with chicken wire. The flowers are Prima. LOVE these feather flowers! They were perfect for this layout. I also used my Copic marker on the sequined bird so that he blended better with my color scheme.
The title is cut from a quote on the Quick Quotes Miss Morgan pattern paper. I adhered it with foam tape in places so that it is wavy.
I hope I have inspired you to join us in this latest sketch challenge! Can't wait to see what you create.
