BEST GIFT - Scrapbook Layout - The Crafter's Workshop December 2017

Saturday, December 16, 2017

Hello friends!  Today I am sharing a scrapbook layout using this 6x6 stencil of various Christmas ornaments and several of the mediums from The Crafter’s Workshop.

I had been trying to choose photographs for our Christmas card and this was one of the ones  loved, despite it not being a traditional photo.  I thought it would be a shame to not document it and with the a black & white print, some bright colored embellishments would be a perfect compliment.

I chose to use several different colored card stocks in shades on red, pink and 2 shades or turquoise.  Next, I used the Light & Fluffy Modeling Paste, the Shimmery Goodness, and for something different I used the Therm-O-Web Mixed Media Transfer Foil.

The Light & Fluffy Paste is my favorite is like the perfect whipped icing!

I lined up the different colored cardstocks and then stenciled the different mediums across every piece, including a piece of vellum.

Using the DecoFoil Transfer Gel, I stenciled the same ornaments onto the same cardstocks and vellum.

The Transfer Gel has to dry for an hour before foiling it with the transfer foil.  I used the Antique Pearl metallic foil which is a lovely balance between gold and silver.

The foil also looked great with the Shimmery Goodness paint.  I used the scrap pieces of patterned paper that were left over from other projects.  I didn't even trim any of the pieces, just layering them under where I planned to have my photo.

Marking the places where I placed the trimmed stenciled ornaments, I added machine stitching overlapping different stitches.

Using the Gold Gesso, I rubbed a light circle of paint to add a golden halo under the stenciled ornaments.

I added some of the turquoise thread with gold thread in a loop under each ornament as a tie at the top.

I added the oversized date stamp, a title out of chipboard letters, and enamel dots on each ornament.

Thanks for stopping by the Blog to share my layout today.
