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.
To add a bit more layering, I stamped on a bit of Christmas letter text and added some silver metal leaf around the edges.
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.
Lastly, I added a bit of journaling around my snowmen for added visual interest.
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.
