This is my page for our challenge at Scrap Africa:
Create a project - layout, card or altered project that depicts what Christmas Time/December Holidays/Hannukah is like in your home, town or country...
Here are some details...
With this page I'm entering to the following challenges:
As you can see my page is made in rustic style: I tried to avoid bright colors and contrasts and use only natural and muted colors (shades of wood). So, I chose a beautiful paper with wood pattern, I painted the chipboard pieces with 'vintage photo' distress stain and used a beige shade acrylic paint, crackle paint and white gesso with some branches stamps to create the background. I also used lace, twine, my grandma's vintage buttons, some flowers, a page from an old book and a cinnamon stick which I decorated with two small bells and a tiny pine cone.
The title and the journaling I wrote is: "Happy Days: During Christmas period I really enjoy making small gifts for my family and friends. Baking cookies and pretzels is my favorite thing to do".
I used the sketch from ScrapKopilka...
Scrap Cafe Mom: snowflake challenge
I used a huge felted snowflake, which I took from the Christmas tree and now proudly decorates my page, lol ...and some tiny snowflakes made with stars sequins!
