Merry Christmas

Here’s a page featuring the new Snowflake 3D Shimmer, it lights up at the touch of a button!  I have also used some gorgeous Christmas papers, and various stickers. The sweater stickers, red glittered paper, and adorable gingerbread men really made me smile, and made me think of all the wonderful Christmastimes I’ve had with family.  The photo is of my son sledding on Long Island, New York, during a visit there. There’s not a lot of snow where I live now in Houston, so this was a pretty exciting day for everyone!

Supplies Used:

To make this layout I put a piece of foam core board underneath the photo with to give it some dimension. This also leaves space to tuck flowers and things into. I put the 3D Shimmer snowflake on, then the acetate snowflakes, Gingerbread, and Ugly Sweater Stickers.

To create more texture I applied gesso, gold lace, antique glass glitter, microbeads, a reindeer die cut, flowers, leaves, a chain, and charms. I rubbed on pearl mica powder on top of the gesso, and gold mica powder on the edges of almost everything.

I painted some areas with cobalt blue water color, and used aqua and bark colored watercolor pencil in others. I used a frost spray on a piece of memory glass, you can see it to the right of the photo.
