White With 1 December Challenge "Merry & Bright"

Hi everyone. Today I have a Christmas layout to share with you. This is for the December challenge over at White With 1. I can't believe it is almost Christmas!!! This year has just gone so fast. This months criteria was taking  inspiration from a Christmas paper. I have used a lovely Allison Ellis foil holly paper & I have teamed it with white cardstock.
On the white card I have used a stencil with Gesso & loads of Glimmermist & Glimmer Glaze to achieve the yummy snowflakes. I love the dimension of the Gesso. (Thanks again Stacey Young for the inspiration, Stacey is sooo the queen of Gesso).
I have used 2 Crafty chippie words & Reindeer which I painted white & then gave a coat of Glimmer Glaze to add sparkle, although I don't think you can see the sparkles all over the page in the pics!! I have also used lots of Diamond Dust on both the scalloped circle & the snowflakes to simulate snow. Lastly I have done my signature distressing, sewing, used lots of both Green Tara & Prima flowers & if you look closely at the flowers you will see lots of little Green Tara crystal sprays. I just love these. Thanks for taking the time to stop by. I do hope you like this layout. Until next time, Merry Christmas.        Cheers Di  xx
