Christmas in June-Day 3 of TE Sneak Peeks for June


I'm playing along and giving a sneak peek at the new Patriotic Wreath petite set I illustrated for the Whimsical Wishes line. I'm sure you'll see true American pride and patriotism as you hop along with the Baker's Dozen today, but I thought I'd try something completely different to show the versatility of the starry wreath. For a little Christmas in June, I've teamed up the wreath with lots of TE goodness you might already own...


I followed Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch fairly closely and added lots of layers. Using the colour scheme from the KaiserCraft Christmas Carnival paper, I coloured the stars pink, blue and a salmony red with copics and my French Grey 70% prismacolor pencil for shading. I cut the wreath with the Seasonal Wreath die and used it to frame the "Be Merry and Bright" sentiment from Sparkle and Cheer. I've also used the Leafy branch die and Stars Impression Plate for added interest.






Can't wait to see what these talented gals have dreamed up for the 4th of July...


Thanks for stopping by...
