Retro cafe | The Studio challenges


Hello again! It’s time for August’s second challenge on The Studio challenges blog. This time we are working to the below sketch:

13th Aug Sketch 2

I really enjoyed this challenge as I don’t usually mix/combine papers for my background. It was pretty hard to find two coordinating designs. I have pretty big stash of all things mixed-media but two co-ordinating papers? Well…it’s harder than you may think. Once I managed the almost-impossible task, the rest just kind of happened. I used mainly creams and whites to brighten up the retro browns of these papers and splashes of peach pink for added colour. How are you going to tackle this month’s sketch?


Here are some close-ups.
