Hello friends! Jenni here today to share a scrapbook layout using this 6×6 stencil of various Christmas ornaments and several of the mediums from The Crafter’s Workshop.
The Crafter’s Workshop provided me with some product to create this project. The opinions I share are solely my own.
I have been trying to choose photographs for our Christmas card and this was one of the ones I loved. I thought it would be a shame not to document it and using this black & white print, some bright colored embellishments would be a perfect compliment.
I chose to use several different colored card stocks in shades of red, pink and 2 tones of turquoise. Next, I used the Light & Fluffy Modeling Paste, the Shimmery Goodness, and for something different I used the Therm-O-Web Mixed Media Transfer Foil.
The Light & Fluffy Paste is my favorite medium…it is like the perfect whipped icing!
I lined up the different colored cardstocks and then stenciled the different mediums across every piece, including a piece of vellum. The Shimmery Goodness medium on vellum was such a lovely texture!
Using the DecoFoil Transfer Gel, I stenciled the same ornaments onto the same cardstocks and vellum.
The Transfer Gel has to dry for an hour before foiling it. I used the Antique Pearl metallic foil, which is a lovely balance between gold and silver. After all the ornaments were stenciled or foiled, I trimmed them out.
The foil also looked great with the Shimmery Goodness paint. I used scrap pieces of patterned paper left on my desk from other projects. I didn’t even trim any of the pieces, just layering them under where I planned to adhere my photo.
Marking the places where I placed the trimmed stenciled ornaments, I added machine stitching, overlapping different types of stitches.
I rubbed a light circle of Gold Gesso to add a golden halo under the stenciled ornaments.
I also added some of the turquoise thread tied with gold thread under each ornament as a tie at the top.
To finish up the layout, I added the oversized date stamp, a title out of chipboard letters, and enamel dots on each ornament.
I hope this inspires you to document a special photo for the season or just to craft a story! Thanks for stopping by the Blog today. Have a great week!
