Merry and Bright-Christmas layout for Scraps of Elegance

Well it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas around my house and I was just thrilled to receive my Christmas-themed DT kit "Silver Bells"  the other day. The wonderful Graphic 45 Christmas Carol papers were just begging for some serious fussy-cutting so I had a great time creating this layout!

I fussy cut the frame and all of the flowers along with the leaves and berries. I layered the flowers and curled the ones on top for dimension. Gold microbeads were added to the flower centers and the berries were accented first with Perfect Pearls in Forever Red then Faber Castell Texture Gems for a little sheen.

I stencilled with homemade texture paste using a Tim Holtz stencil for the flourishes and a Crafter's Workshop stencil for the script.

The photo is of my two awesome kids back in December of 1997 when they were ages 5 and 2 and the title piece is from Michael's crafts....thanks heaps for stopping by and have a terrific week!
