Happy Holiday’s Crafty friends! This month I am back with this layout that I created using 49 and Market Vintage Artistry Shore collection.
The Layout Beginning
The first step I did was, I brushed on some homemade clear gesso. If you would like to give this recipe a try, here is the tutorial to it. Using my heat gun to give it a quick dry. I adhered it to a 12x12 sheet of chipboard using some double sided tape.
I stenciled onto the layout using a snowflake stencil from The Crafters Workshop using some Finnabair Textured powder mixed with white gesso as well as Lindy’s Stamp gang Magicals in Bayou Boogie Gold.
Next, I used my heat gun to dry where I have stenciled. The step I did next, was to pick out the ephemera pieces that I would be using on my layout from the Vintage Artistry Shore ephemera pack. I then, adhered and layered some of the pieces I picked out. Then, added my photo mat which was also a piece of ephemera, I adhered it onto scrap card board. Next, I added the photo of my 2 year old grand daughter which was taken last Christmas by my Christmas tree.
Using a chipboard piece from Scrapaholics, I used Brutus Monroe Embossing Ink and WOW Embossing Powder Iridium on this “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star” piece. I adhered it onto the layout. Also, I had this reindeer tag in my stash so I cut off the ribbon and added a pearl from Frank Garcia Memory Hardware Pearls . I added some flowers from Prima Marketing, adding some of those same pearls on them as well. Another item I added to the flowers was Fabulous Fibers (Frosted Halo) from Brutus Monroe. The last item I added to this layout was some Clear Seed Beads randomly on the flowers.
I hope you all are inspired with what I came up with using this collection. So even if you have papers that aren’t Christmas themed, you can definitely transform them to whatever them you want! This was a great challenge for me! Till next time!
