Happy last Sketch reveal Friday before Christmas! Can you believe it? I can hardly believe that Christmas is only 4 days away! I am not ready yet! Well, I hope by the time you read this, I will be!
The sketch we get to share with you this week, for me, has been a true favorite! The layout I made for it came together quite quickly for me and I enjoyed every minute of it!
This layout features a photo of years gone by, of my dear brother Brent, and I! I think I was 3 in this photo. My mom was pain-stakingly slow at taking photos, and it looks like I had gotten distracted. Big brother is nonchalantly trying to get my attention with his fingers with out checking out himself what had distracted me! I have seen this exact pose in at least one other photo of us as young children! lol I am using Kaiserkraft's Turtle Dove for my papers.
Here is the awesome sketch designed by Sandi Clarkson. You guys have got to give this sketch a try.... seriously!
I used a gorgeous Dusty Attic piece to frame the photo. I painted it with gesso, and then sprayed it with Mr. Huey in Blizzard. It is very iridescent, which isn't showing up here in the photo. To make the snow I used DecoArt Texture Thick and then sprinkled Diamond Dust on it.
The twigs and berries are by Kaisercraft, and I painted them the same way I did the DA piece. I also used DA word believe for part of my title, just painted with Gesso.
I only had one piece of this paper, so I photo copied the portion that had the children playing and then fussy cut them and applied Rock Candy Distress Stickles. I then pop dotted them up. I applied some of the Texture Thick at the bottom to make it like they were actually in the snow.
Close up of the flower cluster and Prima resin Angel. I white washed the flowers with gesso.
I applied some Gesso to this rusty snowflake.
Thank you all so much for stopping by! I appreciate all of you who have supported me this past year with my scrappy-ness, and I hope to see you in the new coming year! Please stop on over at Stuck on U Sketches and check out the work of the rest of the design team.....I know they have created amazing layouts! Give the sketch a go and link up your name to the blog and you just may be one of the featured top 3! How cool would that be to end the year with?
Be blessed everyone, and have a Merry CHRISTmas and a Happy New Year!
