The Color of Happy {Sketchbook365 December Sketch}

The last sketch of the year is up at Sketchbook365, and it's the last one for my term on the design team. What fun I had these past six months!

Here's the sketch, based on an awesome page by Birgit Koopsen.

Here's what I came up with. That's my husband's niece and her husband. They live in Chicago and come to D.C. for a conference every winter and visit us while they're in town. I thought I'd start a book for them. I'm snagging pictures off of their facebook page.

Here are some details. The leaves and "happy" were cut on my Silhouette Cameo. Papers I used are by BasicGrey (dots), Kaiser Craft (wood boards), Webster's Pages (diagonal stripe).

I included the next picture, even though it's similar because it shows the word sticker is a shiny metallic. I was going to attach all my leaves with the Tiny Attacher, but I realized too late that it doesn't have a big enough reach, so just the ones at the bottom are stapled. Timmy, please, please, please, make a long-armed Tiny Attacher stapler! I used texture paste and a stencil by The Crafter's Workshop to do the background, along with a little misted and dripped spray ink.

You must go check out the awesome pages by the rest of the team.

And, hey, wanna win this--the New Year New You collection by Webster's Pages?

Then you need to come play! Check out the details here.
