Shabby Christmas

Hi Everyone,

Monday again and were getting even closer to Christmas and I still have loads to get done and can you believe that I actually started in July.  Well I'm going to be even more prepared next year.  The new Maja Design  Frost Basics have hit LLC and I am armed with my 6x6 paper pad, a must, as I am going to be continuing with winter/christmas cards over the christmas period and every month next year to ensure I am well ahead, so if you want to me more organised, like me haha, make sure you stock up on the pads from LLC whilst stock lasts.

So onto the theme that the girls at LLC will be following and this week it's Shabby Christmas. I have used an Angel image by Lilli of the valley, coloured with copics and snow tex added, well it is shabby and you know how I love my snow tex.

The papers are from the newest release Maja Design Vintage Frost Basics 3rd December, 4th December and the postcard is cut from the diet cut sheet, love this.  Papers have been edged with white gesso and a touch of distress crackle paint in picket white.

The flower display consists of white poppies, 20mm, 15mm and 10mm roses, white flower spray and the gorgeous lilac berries.  I have added a wooden key to the wooden cage that the Prima resin fairy is sitting on.  The cage is tied with vintage seam binding in white and finished with a vintage brad.

The the post card is from the MayaDesign Frost Basics Die Cut Sheet and I added a prima clock paperclip and one of the mini wooden stars.  Can you also see the new prima resin corner from the ceiling ornamental and corner pack, so so love these.

I added the Merry Christmas text to a mini spool and added some of the wooden stars painted in crackle paint.  Along the bottom is my favourite pearl trim.

Another close up of the fairy sitting on the cage.

And an artsy view.
