Once upon a sketch 15th Aug

This was the sketch over at OUAS
and this is my take

I used papers and embellishments from a studio calico kit, and the scalloped piece is from my little shoebox. The cloud is cosmo cricket togetherness and the journalling spot at the bottom is bo bunny which I yellowed with distress ink to match the rest of the papers, the word stickers are from Authentique.
I mixed up some paint to match the blue and then gently spattered it.
The criteria with the sketch this time was 2 sentences from a song, I chose Hero by Maria Carey and the lines "and then a hero comes along, with the strength to carry on, and I know i will survive" I did edit them slightly and it now reads.
"And then a Hero came along, with the strength to carry on, and I knew I would survive, with you right by my side"

Hope you like it
