Sweet ♥ - December Hip Kit - Stuck Sketches

Hi there....yes, you are seeing correctly!!!   This is my second post today.  I finished up the Stuck 15 February sketch challenge and want to post it before the deadline.  Nadia took this photo while we were camping in December and I was pleasantly surprised that the teddy bear that we gave Lukas when he was only two is still his sleeping partner.  Lukas and Buddy has long conversations at bedtime.  Here is my page:

Supply list:  Patterned papers:  Hip Kit Exclusives, Echo Park, Paige Evans; Cardstock:  American Craft; Letter sticker:  My Minds Eye (Yes Please mirror stickers); Wood veneer: Lawn Fawn:  Mirror Stickers:  My Minds Eye; Stars: Hip Kit Exclusives; Embroidery Floss: DMC Variegated; Twine: WeR Memory Keepers; Embossing Powder:  American Craft Zing; Other mediums:  PanPastels (Turquoise Shade, Paynes Grey, Natural Grey); Stencil: Prima; Other Silhouette Cameo.

The Sketch:

Some close ups:
 I sometimes have to make an effort to use my stash.  I have PanPastels in every colour and they cost me an arm and a leg when I bought them.  Today I remembered them and used them through a stencil to break the white page.  I love the softness of it,  it can be erased if you don't like the effect and must be fixed with a artists fixative to become permanent.

 The tag was made from packaging material that comes with chipboard titles.

 How pretty is those gold circles and stars.

I cut the star with the Silhouette Cameo and stitched it with Variegated thread.

I have Twinkling H2O's that are lurking.... eeek! Now you're making me feel bad! Is it true you can use hairspray as a fixative? I'm not sure where I heard that..... I do love the look they give & the title is a favest bit for me here. Well done, 2 posts in one day, too:):)
