I've made a Christmas card in gold tones for More than words December mini challenge.
I misted the Scrapmatts sleigh in gold and the peace on earth chipboard in olive green.
The gold corrugated cardstock made a great background for my braid.
It slipped in the scanner but has been glued in place now.
It features our whole family at Mum and Dad's house in around 1982 I think.
I made the plaid and lace rosette and painted then sanded the alphas and frame.
The elf paper made a good border and the strips of green ribbon beside the photos add some order as well. It might not be noticeable but I also splashed walnut ink on my background to age the paper slightly.
I've had this beautiful Websters pages Christmas tree for quite a while.
It suited this layout.
Every year the big department store in Sydney decorates its windows.
It is a favourite with children and adults alike. I made the chipboard ladder match the one in the photo by misting it with a rust colour.
I decorated the branches on the tree with small ornaments to make my layout more festive.
At the scraproom group on Facebook they are having a stash challenge and you need to use the letters in Santa.
On my layout I have the following:
S= stripes,salmon pink
N= navy ribbon
T= tag title
A=animal washi tape.
Here's the layout featuring Erica and I having a pedicure on her birthday.
There is a colour palette at Whimsical Musings.
It is basically an autumn palette but can be interpreted any way we want.
My background paper is Paper Inklings and is brown with a slightly blue marble effect.
I used a large red doily, then yellow backing paper. I put 5 spots either side of the 3 photos using my dottariffic pen.I had white and brown floral bracket which I layered beside my title.
The title is made from a variety of alphas.I added 2 wood veneers and enamel dots as a final embellishment.
