King Winter

The snow is back and I might be one of the few who is excited about this. What can I say I just really love it. I decided to make a journal spread with this fun quote I found on Pinterest.

You may be very sick of me by now talking about Effy Wild, but I have to give credit where credit is due. So this page is also inspired by one of the lessons in her Book of days Class. I used some torn paper scraps, a circle stencil, a Tim Holtz stamp, and some embossing paste mixed with some shimmery paint for the background. I was very happy with how it turned out.

It is hard to see, but the shimmery paint held it's shine when mixed with the embossing paint and I really like the texture it gave the background.

I am still working on perfecting my drawing skills, but for the most part I am happy with my girl. I do like the journaling in her hair.

For my final layer I added some embossing paste through the dot fade stencil by Tim Holtz. I was trying to mimic a snow falling. I am submitting this to the Simon Says Stamp Embossing Challenge.

 Thank you for stopping by. I hope you are enjoying whatever season you are in.
