Hi fellow scrappers.. I'm here today to share a layout with you that I created for the monthly challenge over at Creative Embellishments.. We have an amazing inspiration photo for the month of January and you have all month to play along with us..
Here is the photo:
I absolutely loved this months inspiration photo, it felt nice and "Frosty!"..
Here is my layout that I created using the inspiration photo:
I used some of my favorite papers for this layout and they are by Bo Bunny, lots of chipboard goodies and flowers from my stash (trying to use up my stash to make room for new)..
How about a few close ups:
These scroll sets are my favorite, they are so pretty and easy to use.. I painted mine white and added a few drops of silver Nuvo drops for accent.. Tucked it underneath the bottom of my photo and then added a cluster of flowers to the corner..
I only used two sheets of paper from collection, but because they are two sided, I was able to get more for my money (so to speak), I also used some of the corrugated papers I have been holding onto.. they are 6x6 but once you start ripping them apart, you also get more for your money..
Now, for the title sentiment.. I painted it white and then covered it with Star Dust Stickles.. It was so hard to photograph the glitter look to it..but it turned out super frosty..
I also used 9 snow flakes from the chipboard snowflakes set, definitely get more in that set.. I painted them white and light blue with distress oxides and then placed them on my layout..
and because the challenge asked to add texture, I used the snowflake stencil and some texture paste to add some soft snowflakes to the background, along with the distressed text stamp on the edges..
That is my layout for our January challenge.. I hope you were inspired and would like to play along with us this month over at Creative Embellishments.. If so, just click HERE and it will re-direct you to the CE blog..
Till next time..
