Frosty December

Hi Scrappers! During the weekend I finished another layout for a sketch from Let's Get Sketchy, but I just hadn't the time to upload it. So here it comes! It's from the January Week 1 sketch.

I took this photo during one of our hiking trips. The forest floor just draw my attention to all its frosted leafs and foliage. I thought I'd be a great picture :) I wanted to create a vintage mixed media background and added a lot of subtle texture to it. First of all I used mask with small dots behind the layered photo. After that I misted the masking with different darker shades of glimmer mist and wiped away the excess for the dots.

I cut the title with my Cameo and added some white distress glitter on top (I couldn't catch the glitter with my camera :( ) Underneath the picture I stitched a chevron pattern with blue floss to the paper, and added my journaling above the floss.

I stamped a few doilies with embossing ink and heat-embossed them with this great patina-embossing powder by WOW. In between I added a few glitter brads and sequins.

I covered the snowflake with distress glitter to create this frosted and layered look. You can see it better than on the "December" title, but I'm still not super-happy with the result of the photo. I guess I'll need to buy a macro lens for my camera... :)

And this was the sketch I used: 

Thank you for stopping by, I hope you like my newest creation :)
