Mixed Media Christmas Layout
In Alternative Colours

Hi there friends, thanks for stopping by.
I hope you had a wonderful Christmas with your families.

Today I have a mixed media Christmas layout to show you that I created
featuring my youngest granddaughter.

This is my most recent design team creation for
2Crafty Chipboard.

I have used some of their great Christmas chippies
& I have used non traditional Christmas colours.
I was sooo happy how it all turned out.

After firstly creating a mixed media background as this is just a 
piece of plain white cardstock, & doing some sewing 
down both sides I then used lots of Finnabair paints & watercolours
to match everything to each other !!

Next up came the layers, some background stamping as well as
adding some wonderful flowers from Prima Marketing Inc.
& I also made this little wreath that draws attention to my photo. 

A few pine cones & some holly leaves & all finished.

I hope you like it.

Until next time.....

Well hello there, thanks for calling by.
Today I have a decorated  white cane lantern to show you that
I did as some design team work for  Prima Marketing Inc.

rubbed onto some acetate & fussy cut out. Then I coloured up
all my flowers with their Art Alchemy paints & glitters.

make a lovely Christmas present.

**"Sweet Cheeks"**
Layout By Di Garling

Well hi there & hello. Di Garling here with you today.

 I have this layout to share with you
that I made using these  very old pics
of my youngest son, who is now thirty seven !!! Where has the time gone?

He was the cutest little boy says one very biased Mother !!

2Crafty Chipboard used...

Sweet Cheeks - title
Chain Circle Frames
Chain Lengths
Mini Cameras
Mini Hot Air Balloons
Mini Fast Forward Arrows

After doing a mixed media background I set about altering all my chipboard pieces.
 The title "Sweet Cheeks", the "Hot Air Balloon" & the "Fast Forward Arrows"
were all treated with a coat of gesso followed by some simple mustard
coloured acrylic paint. Too easy. 

 The "Chain Lengths" & "Chain Circle Frames" were firstly wiped
over with some brown ink before being heat embossed with some vintage photo
Distress Embossing powder. When cool I then wiped them over with some
Viva InkaGold paste in both gold & copper to achieve a rusty metal look.

I sponged a little brown ink on the 
 "Mini Camera" to colour it up to match.

 Well thats all for today. I hope to see you back here again soon.

Until next time.
