WISH COME TRUE. Scrapfriends December Sketch Challenge

I loved this sketch from Scrapfriends and even though this is such a crazy busy time, I had to squeeze it in!
And since these photos were taken almost exactly 7 years ago...a little birthday homage to my baby.




I love their sketches so much because they fit with my style of layers and patterns and lots going on!
And I think they are pretty specific but at the same time open for interpretation!


I interpreted the dark paint lines as layers of vellum, colored, plain
and the star pattern acetate over watercolors.


I interpreted the polka dots or dot pattern as stars and punched them
as well as used silver and white modeling paste with a stencil.


These pictures of my son were taken the day we got home from the hospital on Christmas Eve.
He decided to show up almost 4 weeks early and while it was unexpected, unplanned and painful, literally...
it is still the best Christmas present I have ever gotten!


Pin It!
