I would like you to do a layout with a Christmas or winter theme, and using:
12 buttons (for December being the 12th month of the year)
Have fun! I am looking forward to seeing what you create!
Anna-Karin: I love this time of the year with preparations for Christmas, candles, decorations and the whole feeling and spirit around Christmas. I was planning to have done a layout about our Advent tradition, but didn’t have any good photos that were developed regarding that theme, so instead I used a childhood photo. I used four shipping tags which were coloured with an acrylic block technique that Jennifer McGuire taught in Holiday Thinking Inking. The tags were stamped with black, brown and green ink, as well as gold embossed a bit. The chipboard heart was embossed with several layers of UTEE, with a layer of gold embossing powder on the top.
Journaling: This Santa has been around for a long time. I am not sure if he was new here on my first Christmas or if he is even older. He has posed on many Christmas photos and has stood faithfully under the Christmas tree together with the Christmas goat for many years. Now he looks quite worn and has lost his shirt. The beard is no longer as white and fluffy, but he is still my favourite Santa.
I had fun going through some older Christmas pictures for this one. I used some tags from one of the My Mind's Eye collections and my buttons are actually brads shaped like buttons that I used on the note paper. Thanks for the fun challenge Anna-Karin!
Have fun and thanks for playing! Remember that at the end of the week one participant will be featured as our "How Awesome is Too Awesome - Weekly Wow" and will be in the running to win a RAK at the end of the month! Post a link to your layout in the thread at Two Peas.
