Documented Life – Week 52

2014-12-25 00.26.56

This week’s DLP challenge was “Document your family holiday traditions”. With the holiday in full swing, family in town and life’s regular demands, I didn’t have a whole lot of art time this week so I decided to keep it simple.

I started by dry brushing on a base of light blue of acrylic, then airbrushing a darker blue over snowflake stencils using my Copic airbrush system.

Next, I painted a snowman couple and dressed them up with caps and scarves that I cut using my Silhouette Portrait, making sure to give my snow woman girl pink, rosy cheeks.

To complete my layout, I added some of our holiday traditions to hearts, cut them out and ran them through my Xyron to adhere them to the page.

Thank you for looking. It’s been a pleasure sharing my DLP layouts with you for the last 6 months and I look forward to sharing 2015 with you as well.

Happy Holidays!
