Good morning everyone! Here we are the Monday before Christmas, have you gotten all your shopping and preparations done? I must confess, I'm running behind this year. I've had health issues with both my parents for the past month so everything else has had to be put off. There's still a couple of gifts I need to run out and get, finish the wrapping, then get started on the baking. If you're one of the lucky one's that's checked everything off your to do list hopefully you'll find a bit of time to play along with the new sketch that was revealed this morning at Let's Get Sketchy. Here's my inspiration page based from the sketch featuring products from Reneabouquets.com.
I chose to use Bo Bunny papers for this wintery page. I started by distressing and randomly punching the background. To add interest and texture I added a bit of stamping and stenciling. Then I dry brushed some gesso on the background. For the snowflakes, pine branches, pine cones, and flowers I gave them a quick brush of gesso and while it was still wet I sprinkled on some Hero Arts ultra fine prisma glitter. As a finishing touch I added some silver micro beads throughout the clusters. I love the added texture they give.
I've used the Dec. challenge moodboard from Berry71bleu for inspiration.
And here's our fabulous sketch for you this week designed by Laura Whitaker.
And before I go here's a list of the products I used from Reneabouquets.com and Etsy shop. The shops are currently on vacation, but will start taking orders again on Jan.2nd.
Snow White Butterflies, Ranger Texture Paste, Tim Holtz Speckles Stencil, Prima Tatiana flowers, and Reneabouquets Silver Microbeads.
Thanks so much for stopping by! I truly appreciate your time and lovely comments! Hope you have an amazing day!
