This is for the LSC92 challenge to use the word sweet and try to make something with candy. I don't have any candy images at all so I sketched out the box of chocolates. When I was little my parents always got a 5 lb box of Russell Stover's from an uncle that lived out of town. It was something we four girls always looked forward to. So a box of chocolates and candy canes represent my fond childhood memories.
I sketched the box with a brown waterproof artist pen and painted with reinkers. I thought the crimped vellum look like the paper that was always on the top of the box. I used a real red marker to draw several lines across white paper and hand cut the canes so they certainly aren't even or perfect. My mother was a florist and always had old fashioned pine wreaths around the house. I used Wee Watercolor pine and pinecone to make a mini wreath for under the sentiment to complete my little scene. I used creamy caramel and a brush to create the faux wood for the table.
