Smile Sketchabilities #128

 I wanted to join in the sketch challenge at Sketchabilities this month as I loved the sketch this month!
This is my take on the sketch. Unfortunately it buckled a bit so the cropping is off sorry about that. Shooting outside knee deep in snow is quite challenging! 
This is the sketch
This is one of my favourite photos of my daughter Stephanie when she was younger. I love her smile. Loved how she was just sitting on her bed by the window and the photo captured her in a bit of shadow.
I used the Epiphany line from Prima (love this line!!). I mixed some Lindy's mist (Cosmopolitan Pink) with some moulding paste and glass bead medium and masked these circles on. The chippie is from Blue Fern Studios.
All flowers are from Prima as is the tiny birdcage. The birdcage is also from the Epiphany line. Stamping with Bo Bunny of course! I misted the blue flower with Glistening Waves Color Bloom from Prima. It used to be white.
More masking with moulding paste using the Mini North Star mask from TCW and added pink liquid pearls in the center. Sadly this is where the page buckled and no matter what I tried I couldn't fix it. 
One last close-up. 
As we have now moved into the winter season I can forsee some hilarious moments with me out in the snow trying to get the perfect shot with my bar-b-que as the backdrop! The days are already so much shorter and living where I do we can go weeks without sunshine. I live by a lake so we get a lot of lake effect snow which drops a foot of snow here and there. Ugh. I envy all you ladies that are heading into your summer while I look at a long winter ahead of me!

Well that's it for now! Have a great weekend! All the best! :)
