December Color Challenge Lindys Stamp Gang


Hi everyone, I hope you are having a great time this holiday season.   Today I would like to share with you a mixed media layout that I created for the Lindy's Stamp Gang's December Color Challenge. I captured this sweet photo of my niece Averie kissing Gram Christmas last year.  This was the perfect photo for today's layout.  Here is a glimpse at the color challenge photo: 

I decided to use Tibetan Poppy Teal and Creme Brulee Cream which I had in my stash.  

I didn't have anything in the Lindy's family to represent the red value in the color challenge, so I decided to reserve that color for my paper embellishments. 

I used the Creme Brulee Cream to add shimmer on all of my accent pieces.  While the Tibetan Poppy Teal was used to add contrast in my background.  Look at how beautiful my Crackle Paste Snowflakes look against the Tibetan Poppy Teal spray.  

For additional interest around my floral sprays I added a few Die-namites Dies.  The Spring Doily Die was cut in half and sprayed with the Creme Brulee Cream then added to either side of the embellishment cluster.   The flowers from the flowering branch die cut were the perfect accent for my floral sprays. I also sprayed the branch dies with the Creme Brulee Cream


Every Christmas layout needs glitter - right?  Well I used non-shed red glitter paper to create a banner across the bottom of my photo cluster, and covered wooden snowflakes with Glass Glitter. 

I framed my layout in this wooden fame that was painted with the Tibetan Poppy Teal.  It is going to look gorgeous on my wall this Holiday season. 

Here is a process video showing how I created this layout.
