Hello. Its me, Lisa, back with another layout done with the beautiful January kit featuring 3 Quarter Designs paper collection, Christmas Wonderland. I wanted to show how sometimes, your holiday themed papers can be taken in a different direction, other than holiday. Although you can still see remnants of snowflakes on the designer paper, nothing else reminds me of a holiday theme. I cut a strip of paper from one design, ran it through an embossing folder, and adhered it to my main background paper. I covered the paper with clear gesso so my spatters wouldn't bleed through the paper. I wanted the wood grain design on the paper show for the most part. Wood grain designs are among my favorite paper designs.
For the photo frame, I die cut the frame using a lighter part of one of the papers. There is a faint design on the frame, but I like that it is mostly the lighter color. I cut the some corrugated cardboard using the same die. I adhered the die cut design paper on top of the cardboard cut out. This gave me a sturdy frame. I popped the frame up off of the page using some scrap corrugated cardboard underneath. I used the throwaway cut out oval from the middle of the frame, to use as a guide to cut out my photo. The chipboard on either side of the frame is also from Tres Jolie. It is the Corner Scroll Set. I painted it with white gesso, then heat embossed some white embossing powder over it.
