I have my second Christmas page that I spoke about earlier in the month and my recently revealed layout on another Stuck?! Sketch.
The day was Christmas 2013, when magic was big on his wish list.
A few snaps capturing the boy opening his pressies.
I've used the New Release chipboard Messy Heart Frame to draw the focus to photo. It's been covered with red ink as a base for the Stickles and metallic gel pen that I have randomly applied. I've used the same technique with the Messy Circle Frame at the top of the page, but this time I've coloured it using soft teal ink and diamond Stickles.
My second page features the Corner Heart Flourish and the Delicate Doily. Both pieces were gesso-ed first and left to dry. The flourish has been covered with a few different watercolour paints in reds & pinks and the stamped with Staz on Ink in black.
The doily has been cut in half and coloured with a navy pen.
The new chipboard title Celebrate this moment was also covered with a water-colour wash and lightly stamped.
Celebrate this moment
Thanks for dropping by the blog today, hopefully you get a chance for a little crafting sometime very soon.
Today I am sharing another layout I did for a challenge last month. When I seen the mood board I knew who and which photo I needed to scrap. My daughters closest friend has been diagnosed with stage 4 lymphoma late last year. Eve has a big personality and she is staying strong and positive. I think she rocks the bald, beautifully.
I really love these new messy hearts they frame the photo perfectly.
This layout has a good mix of old and new WOW products, from a new 6x6 AltaMATZ to a few wood veneer Christmas pieces, they all come together perfectly. The background effect has been created with Distress Ink and the new 6x6 Heart & Wire AltaMATZ. I have also outlined a few random hearts using a metallic gold pen. The other new release piece is the chipboard Mary-Ann Flourish, covered with gold ink and then coated with diamond Stickles The Wood Veneer Christmas Pack was put to good use. The word Merry Christmas has been softly covered with Distress Ink to balance the red on the page and the angel has been covered with more ink and Stickles. The HoHoHo from the Christmas Numbers Pack met with the same treatment. Love the Stickles finish in the sunlight.
I think you would have worked out by now that I am still scrapping Christmas photos. The season flew pass so quickly, I guess I missed the boat. So I have plenty to catch up on. PS: Another Christmas page will make an appearance later in the month :). Oh, What fun it is!
