Winter Fun Sketchabilites Nr 84

 It is the 30th of the months and Karen has created yet another wonderful sketch. Here is my take on it.

 Here is the sketch: 

 I took those pictures on our first visit to the "Christkindlmarkt" -  a little market just for the Christmas season. It was pretty cold, but we all had lots of fun.

This layout is quite 3dimensional and I want to share a few techniques I used on this layout. 

First of all, I did not have a paper that matched DD's jacket. So I created my own paper. 
Here you see the picture - in iphoto, I just cropped the part of her jacket. 

Then I printed this section as big as possible on normal white paper, ran it through my cuttle bug using a Tim Holtz die and the swirls were done. 

I also used the cute little Prima Canvas resist flag, inked it, got it really wet, laid it between a few pens and dried it with a heatgun. 

After a while it looked like this: 

Thanks for stopping by! 
All the best,
