I followed her instructions for snowflakes the old-fashioned way, but with a twist. I used magazine pages for the first layer.
The trashy snowflakes were glued to my sketchbook page and then I created a space for my greeting with a blue watercolor rectangle.
When that dried, I added some depth to the letters and the snowflakes by shading them with a Sketch & Wash pencil and blending it with water.
Finally, I added some pen marks and then put the whole thing under the sewing machine foot for some thread sketching.
In order to create my wintertime greeting, I took a photo of my sketchbook page and loaded it into paint.net (www.getpaint.net). A little graphic manipulation and away we go! I love to use my sketchbook as fodder for all sorts of projects. From trash to greeting, 1-2-3! Happy Holidays!
