WALKING IN A WINTER WONDERLAND
This is my latest creation for The Memory Nest using the following sketch. When I see a sketch for the first time, I typically have an idea of what I want to do. My initial thought when planning for this sketch was a layout involving bubbles, but then I looked at the calendar. I created this project on October 30, 2016. Two years ago on November 17, 2014, Ohio got its first substantial snow fall. That is UNHEARD OF in Southern Ohio. December maybe; January definitely; November 17...NEVER! And one of the perks of a substantial snow when you are a school teacher is a SNOW DAY! So with November right around the corner and the stress levels at work and at home at an all time high, I had dreams of a snow day. I've always loved this picture of my daughter playing in the snow on that unexpected gift from the snow gods, so I decided to make her the focal point of this layout. The circles reminded me of snow flakes falling from the sky so to pull this project together, I used Echo Park's "Hello Winter" collection. In addition, I added some sparkly snow flakes around the layout to accent the silver glittery paper acting as a border.
