I had so many ideas based on the inspiration photo. Loved the colors and the fact that there was some sparkle. I started this by heat embossing the ornaments and snowflakes onto a panel of watercolor paper. Then I pulled out my Brusho watercolor pigment powders for the background. I am still SO in love with these powders, their colors are so vibrant and they are so fun to work with.
After the panel dried I then stamped the sentiment , drew the strings and bows and added the sequins to the ornaments. I then decided that I wanted the sentiment to stand out a bit more so I pulled out my white gel pen and outline just the 'JOY'.
Here's the photo that was the inspiration for this month's blog hop...
Thanks everyone for stopping by to take a peek.
