Sleigh Bells Ring Are You Listening?

Sleigh bells ring, are you listening,
On the layout, glitter glass is glistening
A beautiful sight,
We're scrapping tonight,
With all Christmas Chipboard in Wowland
.
Yes it's that time of year where we are all very busy making Christmas Cards and handmade Christmas Gifts.
I usually wait until Dec to start using Christmas papers but this year I thought I would do some layouts coming up to Christmas, as sometimes you just run out of time in Dec.
In this layout I used: New Christmas Flourish.
which I displayed on: 12x12 Page Display Stand M183


Step By Step for Christmas Flourish
1. Paint the Flourish with Tim Holtz Brass Crackle paint, dry with heat gun or leave to dry.
2. With a paint brush cover the stars with pewter Liquid Pearls, you can also dry brush some of the flourish with liquid pearls around the edges, then leave to dry.
3. Colour in the tree with a  pink marker, then apply a coat of dimensional magic, then sprinkle Glitter glass or glitter over the top, shake off excess glitter then leave to dry.
4. Wrap some ribbon or glitter twine around some of the flourish.

Step By Step For Display Stand
1. Paint the stand in white paint or I like to use Gesso as it gives a matt look,
2. When the paint it dry sand parts back to give it a distressed look,
3. Coat parts of the display frame with Dimension Magic, then sprinkle with Glitter glass or glitter, shake off excess and leave to dry.
Note: you can paint a different colour on the other side of the stand so you can change the stand to suit the layout.

This is part off the
I did for this months Scrapbook Creations, so make sure you grab a copy to see the Christmas Tree which would make a great Christmas centre piece for years to come.


Also in Scrapbook Creations this month I created a Christmas mini  album using:
which makes a great coffee table book for your guest to look at  this Christmas time or you could open up and use as a banner.
 
I will be playing with some more Christmas pieces every soon as Christmas is my favourite time of the year.
Thanks Gilly oxo
