Sweet Blessing

For my giveaway press here.

This is my new Sketchabilities DT reveal for December 15th Sketch #61.

Well I've never done such a glittery layout until now. The picture doesn't even do it justice. I recently won these gorgeous papers from BoBunny. The Snowfall paper collection is so beautiful with blues and browns and lots and lots of glitter. I used a Clear Scraps snow flake acrylic shaped embellishment and brushed the edges with white gesso to give it a snow-like effect. Then I put white glitter on it to make it sparkle. I put my kids picture under the snowflake. I love that effect because it looks as if the kids are in actual snow. Instead of using circles as the sketch suggests, I used snowflakes and flowers. I used these very sparkly brown and gold Prima flowers and added a Dusty Attic snowflake on each one. I painted each snowflake with white crackled paint and then added glitter on
each one. I used a picture of my kids taken last winter after a beautiful snowfall. We've been lucky this year and snow has been on hold for a while. I'm happy there's no snow but my kids are offence to my kids but I hope they wait for a long time!! Don't let them hear me say that!!!

Thank you for visiting my blog,
