This months product and sketch challenge at Paper Secrets combines an artsy sketch and fabulous Authentique products. I decided to mix and match collections to illustrate these
photos of my son at the beach.

The stickers and images from the Loyal collections made excellent embellishments for this page. I used dimensional adhesive to give the cluster in the lower right depth. I also laceded the edges of the paper using MME twine.
I've had a serious crush on the shapes of Voyage since my first encounter with the Journey collection. Just a little fussy cutting and an instant exotic feel surfaces.
Think Taj Mahal and flowing fountains.
I printed the photo of my sweetie in black and white and in color then matted it with an additional photo of footprints in the sand. To make the mat for the photo on the right I cut individual flourishes then fanned them out.
To enhance these amazing, flowing shapes I added dots of Enamel Accents by Ranger. I also sewed the photos directly onto the page. A large black gem by MME and title using Basic Grey alphas finished off the page.
