A Taste of Culture

On a recent trip to Mexico we dined at a Japanese Hibachi grill, staffed by the people of Mexico.  It was both odd and fun at the same time.  I used this week's Sketchy Thursdays sketch and my Birds of a Feather August kit to create the 1st portion of my double page layout on this.  The 2nd page will be posted soon. 

I had a lot of fun altering the paper, canvas and alphas on this layout. I'll post a tutorial soon showing my process of changing the colors so that I could get the pops of red I was shooting for.

Here's this week's Sketchy Thursdays sketch. Make sure to check out what the design team did with this sketch and of course we'd love to have you play along. You just might win a great prize from ARTchix Studio!
