I love creating little scenes so there was really no doubt what I'd being doing on this one. I used that small box for my entire scene!
I sponged on three Distress Oxides - Mustard Seed, Tumbled Glass and Broken China. Then I spritzed it with a glimmer mist and let the Distress Oxides do their thing. I built a little church with some frosty trees around it (although my short little bush was ill-conceived - it looks like seaweed!) I needed a strip of paper down the side per the sketch and I tried dozens. I really didn't have any intent to go black and white but I like the more modern feel. For the sentiment, I thought a simple "joy" said it all!
I hope to see you playing along with us this week at Freshly Made Sketches.
