Most Wonderful Time

Good day.  We’re almost onto December & this has got me inspired to create festive projects lately.  I love Scrap Around the World’s festive November mood board:

My main inspiration is the wooden star on top of the lit tree, & also the top left image’s white wood & “Most Wonderful Time” sentiment.

This is my first mixed media Christmas layout, & I had fun creating it :).  We don’t get snow in our side of the world but I really wanted to add some “white” touches to the page, hence the splatters of white paint.

I’ve added some media on the hessian paper & layered a star silhouette cut out from a white wood paper.  This is then layered under the sepia photo, giving it a nice frame &  just the right amount of texture & shimmery color.  Various alpha stickers are added at the right side as inspired by the board.  I’ve added a little touch of heart on the photo as well.

She’s very happy & delighted to have Santa visit & give her a present from her preschool.  She couldn’t stop talking about it to everyone for weeks! 🙂

Thanks for dropping by & I hope you enjoyed my post today.  A big thanks also for the fab inspirations of the SATW team.  Enjoy the rest of your month!

Christmas Cards

Hi there, how’s it going?  We’ve had some amazing Christmas weather here in the city of sails, & hopefully it carries on through the new year.  Before this year ends, I’d like to share a couple of Christmas cards that I’ve made, which I’m entering for Kaisercraft’s December challenge.  Here’s the lovely sketch:

And it has to be based with this color scheme:

I created 2 cards for this year’s last Saturday challenge.  Here’s my first entry:

“Merry Christmas”

I absolutely love Basecoat Christmas, as you can see.  I added some pine needles & gorgeous little red apples on the card.  I’ve rotated the sketch for my second entry, and here’s my second card which features Yuletide collection:

 

“25th”

This collection has a lovely traditional feel, which makes it easier for us to make our Christmas projects.  I hope you’ve had a great Christmas season this year.  Thanks for dropping in & enjoy the new year!!!

Just For The Season
