Sitting With Santa - Michelle

Welcome to the New Year !
A quick, late post from me...once again, showcasing October Afternoon Holiday Style.

I have used quite a few techniques in this layout, even though it comes across as relatively simple ! Firstly, I have used a 10 year old photograph - nothing like using up those older photos ! I have also used the May Arts Red Burlap String to make bows for the decorations.

I have used "fussy cutting" to make the decorations and then mounted them using Magic Mount to give them dimension off the page.

I have used lots of different alphas from the alpha sticker sheet and traced around them with a black pen to make them stand out against the green cardstock.

And finally, I added a Prima flower to the journal card to give a 3D effect (there is actually a printed poinsettia on the journal card), and I used the Prima Flower packaging to decorate the chipboard bell !
