Festive time is here! Celebrate, celebrate, celebrate the season! 5 days until you knock down Santa for those fabulous presents, stuff your bellies to the max, and enjoy the time with family & friends!
Hi all, Wendy here to share up my project with a bit of festive play on the season using the "Handmade Holiday" collection. This collection is perfect for all the awesome Xmas pics you've taken/still to take this month! SO many beautiful colors & the vintage twist in this collection and the perfect backdrop for my layout.
Time to share up...
I used the following key pieces from "Handmade Holiday" .
Here are some close-ups & fun details...
I must admit the red glitter snowflake ornament rather inspired my layout while out & about shopping. I knew I wanted to use this on my project and even sat it on my art desk as I thought on the process to work into my project. Then, I just worked in the details around this focus embellishment using various layers to add interest and texture.
The 3x4 inserts in the collection are perfect for layering. Also, the little piece of gift wrap peeking from behind the manila tag is from my recent Xmas gift from my boyfriend. So, I wanted to add it into project without using the entire piece of gift wrap. So, this simple touch of it was perfect for me. Also, lovin' the "washi tape" type stickers I used on the tag. FUN.
The red letter stickers ("xo") in the collection are the perfect size for layering onto your photos, mini projects, and cards too. My other bits & pieces of festive play with stamping and embellishments are from random eclectic finds and from my stash. (and I insert, nope not real peppermint candy but they are resin sparkly peppermints) :) Hey, what's the season without peppermint, right?
I love this piece of the project with freehand swirling of inks, whimsical baker's twine, sparkle, and dimensional accents.
Now, go have a festive holiday & don't forget to create it up with some "Handmade Holiday" with all your awesome holiday pictures!
