Berries and Flickering Candles remind me of Christmas.
Hello everyone, showcasing the NEW CHRISTMAS PAPERS
designed by Denise for MEGS GARDEN
These are just the most delish Collection, I had such fun creating with these deep, rich velvety colors.
The entire page is created with 2 patterned papers . The Main paper is Christmas berry stripes paper , and the other paper is used to mount the photo multiple times, with some fussy cut berries .
I decided to turn the Christmas paper on the side and create a cluster of leaves and flowers surrounding the pic, and of course my trademark stitching in a mustard thread .
The papers are so beautiful they are a truly piece of art on their own .
My layout is backed with two sheets of distressed cardstock .
I chose the purple and fawn as complimentary colors.
The extra strips were perfect for the mounting process and the diecuts.
The mounted photo has 3 layers of Patterned paper and 3 layers of cardstock .
I very rarely do Xmas layouts for a couple of reasons
I do not really enjoy the TRADITIONAL XMAS COLORS
and the photos always seen too chaotic for me
but I embraced these colors with joy .
I AM EXCITED !!!!!!
Here is my take on the new collection
‘New papers’… The Musical Christmas Collection
Christmas Berry stripes P6329
Plum Pudding P6330
lace .. I dyed this lace with glimmermist to achieve the purple hue
Bazzill Cardstock ,purple and kraft.
Tim Holtz diecut – rosettes,
Imaginariun designs chipboard – alphas
Diecuts – fancy tags and leaves
Tissues boxes are so easy to cover and add such style to any room in your home especially your bathroom or kitchen .
I used the delightful and enchanting Spring Paisley collection .
PROCESS .... Cover the entire box and then whitewash with light coat of Gesso …
Allow to dry then I added a Memory Box, leaf die cut, using the same Spring Paisley paper collection.
Next I cut some chipboard with the leaf diecut , and inked it with versa color ink, Bamboo .…
I positioned the cluster on one corner, drooping it over the side to add interest.
Glue the paper leaves directly onto the box, then layer the chipboard leaves over the top as a second layer…
Lastly I added another coat of gesso to finish it off.
