Longing for Christmas
When I saw this Thomas Kinkade painting I had a feeling of wanting to be part of something or longing for something (to join the celebration in that house) and I thought of our daughter who is longing for Christmas this time of the year! The title of my layout is “Longing for Christmas”. I added a lot of different “Christmas-embellishments” to symbolize everything that she is longing for (which includes a snowman and a Christmas tree). To capture the colors in the painting I chose to use a patterned paper in light green (with Christmas pattern) as a background. I used some yellow mist to create some “light” and white gesso to create “snow”. If you look close you can see the yellow “light” as stars trough the “snow”.
