I found the perfect Maja Design papers in their collection “It’s Christmas Time”!
I’ve entered my layout for the Maja Design November 2015 Mood Board.
My focus is on family, together, friends, rustic, red, green, white and dark brown.
I kept this design simple for two reasons. Foremost, I wanted the focus to be on the photo. I also didn’t want to hide the beauty of this paper. The pine branches from a Christmas tree adorned with ornaments was a perfect setting for this adorable photo. The edge of the paper is a beautifully ornate frame. Adding pearls really makes it “POP”!
The chipboard title was heat embossed in a deep forest green color and then topped in white to mimic snow.
The Maja Design “Festive Season” paper, used for the photo underlay and the wreath die cuts, works great with the whole color scheme. Finishing touches of glittered pine cone embellishments and wonderful berry stems by Prima were added for eye catching pops of interest.
I added tiny gold pine cones to the berry stem. I really love the look! Each berry stem, as well as the edges of the paper under the photo, were rubbed with gold wax for added shine.
Finally, the entire layout (photo covered for protection) was generously sprayed with Lindy's Stamp Gang Glitz Spritz Blazing Sun. You can really see its beautiful glistening gold in bright light!
Thanks so much for dropping by! Have a great day! Lisa : )
