Scrap Friends - August sketch

I've just discovered the sketches at scrap friends and I love them!
I grabbed some really old Bo Bunny - Paradise collection (from 2010)
Some of the colours in the collection were a bit vibrant so I just picked out the more neutral ones to work with

This was the sketch
I love all the mixed paper chevrons and had fun trying to get them all sort of lined up on my page.
This is how it worked out
As you can see for once I stuck quite close to the sketch. 
I gessoed over the whole background paper just to tone it down a little and then added the chevron strips I left small gaps in between to try and compensate for them not all being uniform (I hand cut them all)
I'm quite pleased with how this turned out
I shall definitely be adding these sketches to my list of go to's
