Happy Monday! It's Claire here and I can't believe we're already a week into December! Down on the South Coast it's been relatively warm until last week when we have definitely seen a chill in the air and I know some of you even experienced snow over the weekend - how exciting!!
I was never a fan of cold weather but all that changed when I took Mr Claire away to Iceland for his birthday. I'd never had a 'cold' holiday before, but I completely fell in love with the country - especially the beautiful scenery.
When I saw the Echo Park Winter Magic collection in the shop, I knew it would give me the perfect opportunity to scrap some of my photos from the trip.
I started my layout with a piece of Bazzill cardstock, shade Admiral. I decided to use a Christmas Tree cutfile on my page from Peartree Cutfiles but wanted a wintery background to lay it on. I grabbed my snowflake stencil and some silver glitter texture paste and set to work.
I added some white splatters with white acrylic paint and started backing my cutfile while I waited for it to dry.
Now - the paper - Oh my goodness - I LOVE this paper! I used the B side of the aptly named Let It Snow paper which has a blue ombre background and little which snowdrops on top. It is absolutely beautiful.
I tore a strip of the Magic Snowflake paper to sit my trees on and then set about positioning my photo. I backed the photo with the A side of the Magic Snowflake paper and positioned it towards the bottom corner of the page. I raised it on foam pads and layered it on top of a strip of the Snow Angels paper.
