Let's Get Sketchy December Week 4

Is it seriously the Monday before Christmas? Where has the month gone? I'm usually so good about getting all of my Christmas shopping done by the end of November, but this year Santiago wouldn't give us a definite answer as to what he wanted until last week, so I found myself finishing buying gifts this past Friday. Between shopping, gift-wrapping, making cards and going to Christmas parties, I've barely had any time to scrapbook this month. And now Santiago is home on winter break, so unless he plays at the neighbor's house I guess I will be saying "see you later" to my scrap area until January.

Hopefully you will find the time amidst this busy holiday season to get some scrapbooking in yourself. Especially since Let's Get Sketchy has not only a new sketch up today, but there will also be a bonus challenge for the fifth Monday. But for now, check out this week's sketch...

And my take on it...

I couldn't resist getting a bit "messy" myself to create this page about Santiago decorating cookies with edible markers at Easter in 2011. I created a watercolor effect with gelatos, water and plastic bags, and I also splattered glimmer mists, inked with a mask and did some doodling. I had a lot of fun with this page!

I hope you can have some fun with this sketch too...and make sure you head over to the Let's Get Sketchy blog for even more inspiration.
