Snow Fun | Stuck?! Sketches

Hey there!  I am sharing my latest sketch and layout for Stuck?! Sketches today, here is a look at the sketch:

It is great for using up some left over bits and pieces of papers!  Which is what I did with my page, although I haven't actually shared the two pages that I created prior to making this page using the Winter Wonderland collection from Simple Stories.

I am documenting some photos I snapped last winter while we were out for a walk on a bitterly cold day.  It was our first time walking on the lake in the winter.  It was kind of fascinating and a little scary!

You probably know by now that I am a sucker for all wood-grained papers, and this one called "Wonderland" from this Simple Stories collection is no exception.  So of course, it needed to be my background! I added some gold machine stitching and a large snowflake die cut from vellum to create my focal area for my photos.  It turned out a little larger than I anticipated but it still works.

After that, I layered my pattern paper and Washi strips, adding some more machine stitching - this time in teal - and my photos.

Next up came embellishing which is always super fun!

As a last touch, I added some gold Heidi Swapp color shine splatters.

I have created a process video for this layout, you can check it out below or here on my You-Tube channel!
