Through the Craftroom Door ~ Drawn By Krista ~ Happy Birthday!

My DT piece for Through the Craftroom Door, this week with the FAB  from the artist Drawn by Krista.

iusb_760x100.16504819_tmlv

"Krista's first love has always been drawing. Ever since her father gave her the book "The Art of Disney," back when she was a kid. She was lucky enough to live her dream and work as an Animator for over 15 years. 10 years of which was at Walt Disney Feature Animation Florida, up until the studio closed in 2004. Since that time she and her husband settled in the Midwest with their two beautifully spirited children. Krista began a new career in illustration and design. And so, DRAWN by Krista was born."

My DT Piece ~

drawn by Krist5a

Here I have simply created a background using Distress Oxides and randomly stamped Happy Birthday all over the background. I have coloured my image using Spectrum Noirs and then mounted the image onto my background
