'Cozy Winter Evening'

Hello! I hope everyone is staying warm....

I saw 13 arts had a great challenge going this month and as I just recently purchased
the beautiful new winter collection, I had to join in the fun...

'Cozy Winter Evening'

As soon as I saw the colors and theme of this collection I knew I had to have it! 
I love the warm reds with the grays....I started with the paper 'Tender Morning' as my base and layered on some pieces of the paper 'Winter Letters', and then added some modeling paste through my new 13 arts masks for texture.  I was inspired by the texture and softness of the yarn. 

Here is the #25 December challenge photo inspiration....

For more info about the 13 arts challenge please go here.....

I recently saw that Once Upon a Sketch, (one of my favourite challenge blogs ever! ) was going to be no more....Nadia and her team have so much to be proud was a truly inspiring and lovely way to share our work and have fun. I won the December challenge last year, and I will miss seeing all the  amazing work every month by the talented girls on that team. Even though there won't be any more new challenges, it will still be a great place to revisit, I enjoyed every new reveal, there were always some really beautiful and creative designs to get your mojo flowing.

So as a show of support I used Nadia's beautiful sketch for this last challenge entry...

I loved how Once Upon a Sketch really encouraged journalling, something I am just not that good at...
but I did write a few words on the back of this layout...
'December is always my favourite time of year...I love all the time spent with my boys and of course preparing for Christmas....baking, cooking, decorating the tree...I love it all, it always reminds me of what is truly important in my life.'

I have used the following 13 arts products:

Cosy Evening Paper - Tender Morning
Cosy Evening Paper - Winter Letters
Cosy Evening Mask - Branch & Text
Chalk Mist - Woodbine
Silver Microspheres
Silver Holographic Glitter
Gel Medium

You can find all these 13 arts products in their online shop here...

Thanks so much for looking, 
Big Hugs,
Lisa xo
