|Cover - papers from DCWV 'Christmas Made'|
I used a small chipboard album from Maya Road (measures about 3"x3"). All pattern papers are either DCWV "Christmas Made", DCWV "Christmas Memories", My Mind's Eye "All is Bright", or Authentique "Festive."
|inside chipboard pages|
The page spread above uses layered paper, stencils, acrylic paint (red, green, white, teal), and Unity Stamps December calendar, "Numbers Etc", and "Wishing you Joy".
This is definitely my favorite page... so bright and fun! The background is stamped with white acrylic paint and Unity Stamp "Woodgrain Script". I cut various sized triangles and layered them to create a happy Christmas tree.
This page uses Twinkling H2O watercolors, so it's very shimmery in person. All images were stamped on book text, watercolored, then added to the chipboard page. Sentiment and bird stamp are from Unity grab bags, and the houses are from Unity "Finally Fall" set.
I just had to use this book text I found with a cut up tree: "We could conceive of the tree without thinking that it inherently exists or not." (my book text always comes from How to Practice: The Way to a Meaningful Life by the Dalai Lama). The pattern paper is from DCWV "Christmas Made" and background stamp is Unity "Tattered Chicken Wire".
This page... I just wanted to play with some of my new Unity itty bitty stamps! "Happy Day" and "One day at a time" and some various Twinkling H2Os.
This page is also in the running for favorite... there are a lot of different layers and textures on here that were difficult to photograph. It is also misted with 'Goosebumps' for some cool texture and sprinkled with silver glitter.
