Best Ever (Lets Get Sketchy)

Yesterday was a new sketch reveal over at Lets Get Sketchy, and this week we had a sketch by de jesse to work with.  The sketch was very minimalist, with hints of mixed media.  I love sketches like this because you can scrap them as they are, or push it and add a bit more.  I decided to add a bit more.

I used mostly left over products from past Hip Kits (which I keep together in a box).  The exceptions were the strips of patterned paper on the top and bottom of my page.  I scrapped a photo of a latte, which I had taken during my pregnancy.  It was taken on a rare day near the end when I actually felt like coffee.  For my journalling I used my Instagram post "I feel like this today #morningsicknessiwillwin".  I had morning sickness for the whole 9 months, severe in the beginning (hypermesis), and then nausea everyday, and often vomiting.  So to drink a coffee was a win!

And here is the sketch.

 I have a process video, I just need to record the voice over, so keep an eye on my YouTube Channel for that.

Thanks for looking!  I feel like a coffee now!
