I loved this sketch from Scrapfriends and even though this is such a crazy busy time, I had to squeeze it in!
And since these photos were taken almost exactly 7 years ago...a little birthday homage to my baby.
I love their sketches so much because they fit with my style of layers and patterns and lots going on!
And I think they are pretty specific but at the same time open for interpretation!
I interpreted the dark paint lines as layers of vellum, colored, plain
and the star pattern acetate over watercolors.
I interpreted the polka dots or dot pattern as stars and punched them
as well as used silver and white modeling paste with a stencil.
These pictures of my son were taken the day we got home from the hospital on Christmas Eve.
He decided to show up almost 4 weeks early and while it was unexpected, unplanned and painful, literally...
it is still the best Christmas present I have ever gotten!
