My Creation
For my 8 1/2 x 11 page, I kept the sketch pretty much "as is." I used a photo of my sister and I from 1967. My dad was serving in Vietnam, and my sister had just turned a year old the day before this photo was taken. Mom made our matching dresses, and the coffee grinder lamp and record cabinet in the background are still in the family. How fun is that! 
Pin It
I used two types of Blue Fern Studios chipboard on my pagefirst the Winter Trees chipboard which is featured on the sketch. I painted this piece with a mixture of Golden glass bead gel, Golden chromium oxide green open acrylic paint, and Lindy's Stamp Gang Luscious Lime mist. It's a bit hard to see in the photo how "chunky" the tree is but I like it. I also decorated the tree with a mixture of metal pieces and the Blue Fern Studios Tattered Diamond Bits that I painted with Inka Gold silver.
Papers: Basic Grey Blitzen Fresh Snow, Echo Park Reflections Christmas, Paper Trey Ink black cs, Bazzill cs 
BFS Chipboard: Winter Trees (painted with a mixture of Golden glass bead gel, Golden chromium oxide green open acrylic, and Lindy's Stamp Gang Luscious Lime mist), Tattered Diamond Bits (painted with Inka Gold silver)
