Dear Santa - Unscripted Sketches

It is time for another Sketch it Saturdays sketch from Unscripted Sketches! I hope you are enjoying Christmas in July!

This week's sketch...

There is also a Piggy Back challenge this week.
Use wrapping paper somewhere on your project.

I chose to create a scrapbook layout for this challenge, with a Christmas theme of course! I used Tissue Paper, you know the kind you put in gift bags, on my project.

I attached the tissue paper to a piece of light weight chipboard using Mod Podge, I crinkled it up first. I inked around the edges of the page to add interest.

After that, it was just a matter of adding my photos and some fun embellishments!

I love the way the tissue paper background turned out and I hope to use it again on another project!

I hope you enjoyed my project today. Be sure to link your projects up over at Unscripted Sketches so we can take a peek at your creativity!
