December sketch challenge - The Scrapbook Store

 Hello all ☺  The December sketch for The Scrapbook Store has been up for a few days - it's a lovely Christmas theme one, though you can make it any theme you like.  Here is the wonderful sketch:
 And here is my DT inspiration:

 I've used some very recent photo's that we took the other night - my little one had his school Kindy concert and I managed to snap a few photo's of the boys!
I've used the Kaisercraft - Gingerbread collection for this page - I love the colour palette of this collection with the mint green and red!
Here are some close-up's:
 My type writer journal work and for my title I've used some Glitz letters and WOW chipboard - the word 'wonderful' which I've just left raw.
 Here I've used some of the wooden flourishes by Kaisercraft - this one is the Christmas Star - I've coloured in using a Molotow paint pen in Lagoon Blue Pastel - the paint goes on lovely and gives great coverage on the wood!  Then I've coated in glue and added some glitter crystals to give it some sparkle - love how these have turned out ☺
The baubles have been made using the Hot Air Balloon die by Memory Box - I've simply turned it up-side-down and then added twine.
 
 Here is the other Christmas star - I've used some of the enamel dots in the background!

Product used:
Kaisercraft Wooden Flourish - Christmas Star
