I love Christmas, but I have never scrapped a Christmas page before. How weird is that? So I found myself working on the December Challenge for Scrap the Boys. I had SOOOO much fun. It took me a good week to do this page. I worked on little pieces of the page every day. This is what I came up with:
There are elements of this page which were trademark me, but I found myself totally entranced in the art of this. A little paint here, a little button there. This photo of my little man Lucas really inspired me.
For this chipboard title I painted it first. Then I used Glossy Accents to make the work Christmas shiny. I used Red Glitter Stickles on the rest.
For something a little different, I journalled around the outside of the embellishments and photo.
The best part of it was the tree. I had a chipboard three cut like that and it was coloured. I wanted to give it a little makeover. I cut up buttons and stuck them on. I was in Helmar Heaven. I used Helmar 450 Quick Dry Adhesive.
I think I now just want to cut buttons for everything. It was extremely therapeutic!!
And where would my page be without a tear??? And a christmas decoration to hang from it!
Thanks for checking out my page!!
Head on over to Scrap the Boys and have a go at the December Challenge!! Would love to see what you come up with.
