I used the wood grain, white wash effect for the base page, with a touch of black running through it. The colors used are all from the mood board.
The Christmas tree inspired the embellishments used.
The soup mug, heavy warm mittens and ribbed sweater made me think of a white Christmas. For this reason I used my new Prima Snowflake Paste and stencilled the base(Prima Harlequin ).
I also embossed the reindeer ( Scrap Matts)and the word Christmas( Kazzazz) with Stamp -It embossing powder "Seafoam White".
The sprays I used were ;
Lindy's Stamp Gang Sassy Sapphire and Sidewalk Chalk. I also used Heidi Swapp Color Shine Gold.
The fussy cut poinsettias and the papers used were from Kaisercraft "Home For Christmas" Collection.
I thought my photo of a summer Father Christmas was a contrast to the winter theme! As you can tell by my kid's clothes it wasn't cold!!
I was also taken by the expression on my daughter's face....she was clearly excited about Christmas, no doubt still believing in the reality of Father Christmas whereas my son looks as if he is well aware it it is all
Here are some close ups!
hope you don't mind all the pictures but I am so happy with how it all came together!!
