Project - Santa is coming



I am so glad I went to your blog. The bigger pictures there make it possible to see the texture and dimension you got with the embossing paste. The colors and glimmer are wonderful. Those ornaments are amazing. I love the way you put pictures behind the door and in the tag booklet. I bet Anton loves opening the door and looking through the tag book. Beautiful layout!


This is so cute!

This is my layout for this week's CSI: Color, Stories, Inspiration challenge: []

From the evidence I used: snowflakes, glitter, rhinestones, circles, texture paste, wet and dry embossing and something shiny. I journaled on tags, and it is all about the sparkle of Christmas.

I used watercolour paper as the base for my layout. Heavy modeling paste was applied through stencils to create the stars and the circles. After they dried, I used my favourite way for quick colouring, distress stains. Tumbled Glass, Broken China and Brushed Pewter stains were applied to my craft sheet. I misted the watercolour paper heavily before dipping and dragging into the ink. It is hard to see on the photos, but the Brushed Pewter stain adds a great metallic shine.

When dry, a script and a dot stamp were silver embossed here and there on the background and it was splattered with just a little bit of Picket Fence distress stain (which had been transferred to a mini mister).

The flourishes were die cut from watercolour paper and coloured with Brushed Pewter stain. I made a tag booklet for the journaling and for additional photos. I had quite a few photos from my son's interaction with Santa. Swedish Santas come knocking on the door on the evening of Christmas Eve and hands out the gifts. I think Santa is going to have a harder time hiding his identity this year. The tag book hangs from a swivel clasp, so it is easy to open and look through.TFL!
