It's true, we had our first snow up here in the Yukon on September 23rd! I thought it was just gross! Of course it was beautiful, just early. My daughters, however were so excited! Even though their snow gear was all packed, they put on whatever they could find and ran outside! We homeschool, so we were able to declare it a Snow Day and spend the whole day playing outside.
The layout is one of Allison Davis' sketches! This one was really fun to do! I'm starting to reach for sketches more and more while planning my layouts! They are so easy that it makes the rest of the layout go quickly! If you really like her layouts (and I do!) you can purchase Allison's sketch books here.
The background paper on this layout is Stampin' Up's Presto Patterns. I just love Presto Patterns Designer Series Paper! It comes in white with the pattern embossed on the page. You can use ink, watercolour, or Spritz products and techniques on it and the look will change every time! It's a lot of fun! On this one I sponged a few different colours of ink to make a soft pattern that matches my other paper. I actually pulled out my sewing machine and did my first ever stitching on a layout! I stitched the blue paper onto the background paper. I wish it showed up in the picture a little better. (I'm hoping for a new camera for Christmas!) After making and sponging the snowflakes, I covered them with Versamark and embossed Irridescent Ice Embossing Powder all over them to really make them sparkle.
I hope you all have a wonderful day!
