Wonderland ~ SOUS Original Sketch

Hi there, fellow scrappers! I am back today with another fun Stuck on U Sketches  reveal! This week we have another original sketch done by our own Leah and it was so much fun to work with! I hope that you will be able to play along 'cause this was a great one to do .. so many possibilites!

I have just been itching for a chance to use BoBunny's Snowfall collection and was lucky enough to get some in my January Swirlydoos kit! However, I don't have that many cold weather, snow type photos to scrap but did have this awesome photo of dgd MacKenzie with her dark brown hair and a blouse in just the right shade of blue to go with my paper. I did a ton of paper layering although the sketch called for less. I love layers! So I distressed them, inked them and layered them up! Also had to use my MS punch ..

I first had my photo at a jaunty little angle in keeping with the sketch but it just seemed to look better straight up maybe due to the photo size.  I was fortunate to have some Snowfall die cuts to layer in there as well  .. beside and below the photo in place of additional photos. I knew I wanted to use some yummy Petaloo blooms (Canterbury Glittered in brown) but before I placed them, I tied my page with a matching Christmas ribbon that I happen to have on hand. Really love how it looks! My butterfly is from a Melody Ross paper pack ..

I am loving that ornate Dusty Attic piece (Corner Flourish #2) in the upper left corner. It was painted with Glimmer Mist Chalkboard in Decadence and then sprayed with Iridescent GM. Of course, I placed a few brown pearls on it that matched the pearls I had added to my butterfly. Lastly, I added a BB Snowfall trinket to my photo .. and called it done!

Now here are a few close-ups:

And here is the sketch:

Now, I hope that you will visit the other DT members and see the gorgeous work they have done with the sketch. And more importantly, I hope you will play along with us this time. You will have 2 weeks to complete your project and get it uploaded!
