Christmas Cards in Blue

Hello Crafters,
Just a quick post to get back into the swing of things.
I made this snowy blue Christmas card on the weekend. I sure won't be making 50 cards like this, but I believe it was worth the effort!

On Tour in Vienna - Creative Scrappers #244

Good Day Crafters,
Today I have a layout using one of my favorite pictures of my son. This was taken by his friend while they were on tour in Vienna, Austria. He sings in a mens choir and in 2010 they attend the Summa Cum Laude International Choir Festival.

I roughly followed a sketch from Creative Scrappers (I flipped it 180 degrees).

A Most Beautiful Neice - Creative Scrappers #241

After an extended holiday from the blog - I return with a most beautiful layout of my niece. She is such a brilliant, defined person. I am honoured to know her. This photo was taken after she had her hair specially done. I think she is beautiful inside and out. I based this layout on the Creative Scrappers Sketch #241. I am going to enter this into their challenge Creative Scrappers Blog

On this layout I had the opportunity to work with a Dusty Attic Chipboard that I have been dying to play with. I also added some new molding paste to add great texture.
 I am using beautiful paper from Close to My Heart. It is a great smokey plum colour.
 AND, another Dusty Attic addition! A FAIRY! I painted her, stamped her, glued beads on her, and took the cello wrap packaging and made beautiful ethereal wings. So fun!

 I used lots of Prima flowers. The purple ones were originally creme colour. I used a paint brush and ink to paint the petals.
 I thought I would stamp 'enchanting' on the photo itself, as this is how I see her. She is enchanting.
 The words on the background were applied through a mask using molding paste coloured with a mix of brown and purple acrylic paint. This created such great texture.

I used some of this same molding paste on the chipboard flowers.

I worked on this layout with my scrapbooking friends. We gather one Saturday a month and just craft. These people have been so creatively supportive and we laugh a lot! What a gift that is.
