Stuck?! sketches

This is the sketch at Stuck? for January 1st.
I decided to start with mixed media so misted and dribbled a turquoise-green on the paper.
Next I used gesso through a small flower mask.
I inked the edges of my paper doiley and made a large tag using a kaisercraft stamp and more misting.
My title was cut from a tag I had.

I used pattern papers and ribbon for my strips.
When it came time for the photo I turned the whole thing 90 degrees.
(The dribbles go across but that's ok).
It is hard to see, but there is a clear plastic flower top left of the photo.

The people heads were a strip from Kaiser wedding paper which I fussy cut and glued separately.
Here's the final layout.
I'm also entering this on Challenge Yourself as the theme is Happy Holidays.
This get together every year marks Christmas for this group of friends.
We exchange gifts and drink to the year that we have had.
