Good afternoon everybody~! It's cold and rainy here, perfect day for a nap and although I'm feeling a bit under the weather I of course cannot sleep :)- so I thought I'd pop in here and share with you the last of my projects this month for Scrap FX.
I received some gorgeous new Christmas pieces in my kit and with the big holiday just a couple of months away, I really enjoyed the opportunity to create some festive pieces~! I have a layout and a card to show you today, so let's go ahead and get started :)...
"Decorating the Tree"
It is a precious thing to watch my kids decorate the Christmas tree. It was always one of my most favorite things to do during the holiday season when I was a child and I still look forward to it as much now as I did then. I must admit, I’m a bit of a perfectionist- so I’m most definitely there to offer some guidance should one of my kids need some “help” with proper ornament placement, ha~!
Here's a closer look...
String of Lights” piece was super fun to decorate. I of course started out with a base of gesso before misting with red, green, and bronze ink. While the ink was still wet, I added some clear embossing powder, heated it up, and then misted just a little bit more. I love the variety of texture and color that I ended up with .
I allowed the “Holly Flourish” to remain raw as I liked that it blended well with the little bit of cardboard in my layout.
Next, let's take a peek at my holiday card:
I’ve used a few different Scrap FX pieces to put this card together. First, I used a tag from the “Tags, mixed kraft” pack. I painted it white, stamped over it with a script stamp, and then inked the edges. Next I took the wreath from the “Wreath & Holly Leaves” and dabbed it randomly with gesso. Finally, I snipped the “Holly Flourish” in half and placed the pieces on either side of my card. It was painted white, stamped with the same script stamp and then I added some glimmer glaze to the berries.
