Path of Positivity: Snow Hugs


Today is the start of a new Path of Positivity challenge.
The challenge lasts for the month of December

This month the theme is Anything Goes with the optional twist of 
Give/Help Others.

Prizes this month include:
  • TWO images from All Dressed Upour guest sponsor for this month, for a person chosen in a random draw based on all qualifying entrants. 
  • ONE image (value of $5 or less) from Scribbles Designs, for the post or project that the team deems most inspiring of the bunch based on all qualifying entrants.
  • One digital image from Creative Bug Digital SnapShots for each person chosen as a DT Delight

So if you are following the theme this month, we would like you to design a project that focuses on Giving To or Helping Others. A giving heart is a joyful, positive heart and the holiday season is a perfect time for reflecting and thinking about what we can give to others.

How nice is it to get a hug or a kiss, or simply to feel that someone loves you. These are, in my opinion, the gifts that matter the most.
I made a journal page to show this:

Aren't these two cuties simply adorable! 
I used the wonderful Snow Kisses digital stamp from Scribbles Designs and paired it with the Hug Need sentiment.
I coloured the image with Copic markers and made the background by smooshing card into puddles of blue Distress Oxides and adding white Posca pen splatters. Originally I had intended to make a card and had die cut my image, but I changed my mind and made a journal page. I fussy cut around the image and adhered it to a die cut snow bank.
Here is a close up of the pair:
