Little Shop of Sketches! Design Team Call

So I saw this design team call on Mieke's Facebook page and I was curious so I checked it out. I became completely inspired by the sketch and decided to try out. Who knows right? In any case I found a fabulous new sketch site so its pretty much a win win. You can check out the call and see the sketch here. There are some amazing sketches on that site also.

So here is my take on it
It is titled 'Chinatown' and it is one of the pages for my parent's California scrapbook. I made this page with the May Scraps of Darkness kit which went together so fantastically with this picture. So in this page I employed lots and lots of inking, misting, distressing, and fussy cutting. Is it weird that I do fussy cutting better with a small pair of scissors than with a swivel x-acto knife? I gave the page dimension with using pop ups.
I used one of the stamps from the kit to create a border for my circles and then I put a dot of stickles in the center.
The chipboard swan was literally misted over and painted about 20 times. I am pretty happy with the end result but not ecstatic.
Well thanks for looking!!
