Mojo 414- Believe in Santa

This week’s Mojo sketch is a nice design. Certainly many directions one could go with a sketch that isn’t overly complicated.

One of my first purchases from the Holiday Catalog was the Home for the Holiday’s DSP. It has been calling my name since I first saw it. Not sure which I adore more…The reindeer or the santa’s.  

I have always been a very sentimental person. I love the retro feel these images evoke in me. This paper has a metallic sheen in places too. Look at Santa’s coat.
I tried to do some paper piecing/ layering to give it the image more depth. Can you see his beard and hands and also his pant cuffs are trimmed out and put on dimensionals for more depth? I molded the back of the cut out pieces on my foam mat to give them more dimension.  I think I will need to practice more with this this technique to be more successful.
