Season of Joy

This is my Craft-astic Connoisseurs creation for the Imagine That! digis by Kris December blog challenge.  Using the provided photo, I was inspired by the wood, window, small white tree, and trim on the fireplace.  This time around I chose to hand color the digi image with watercolor pencils for a soft effect.

Here are some challenge details from the Creative Playground


THEME:  Joys of the Season  December 3 - January 6

With the holiday hoopla in full swing, now is the perfect time for doing a holiday inspired picture inspiration challenge.  The wonderful thing about pictures is that one person can be moved by one particular aspect and another individual may see something completely different.  So, whether you are inspired by the colours, the shapes, or the objects themselves within the following picture, it doesn't matter.  Just be sure to let us know what elements from the picture inspired you in your design.  Looking for some images or papers that would fit nicely with this picture?  

You can find quite a few in the STORE; so, be sure to stop by.

This month it is all in the eye of the beholder!
