Greetings from a dark and drizzling Dublin - the reason for awful shadows in picture. Thank-you for visiting, especially during this busy Christmas countdown.
I've used papers from the lovely Prima collection 'A Victorian Christmas'. Placed the robin in a faux layered nest and then magnified him with a Prima Memory Hardware Antique cloche that was rather tricky to photograph. The holly branches are cut using Creative Expressions 'Holly Sprays' die. All the holly has been glittered. Edges are variously inked with Prima chalk edger and Stickles 'Memory Glass'. The outer edge is torn in places and Prima lace trim 'Snow' is placed beneath the tears. I've also done a little random stencilling using Finnabair white crackle texture paste - it's meant to represent some snow swirling around a weary looking Santa! The banners (cut with MFT Fishtail Flags die) are coated with Glossy accents to highlight them and then edged with stickles. Added 'berries' with a Waco pearl pen. Finished with a copper star atop tree.
Thank-you so much for stopping by and warmest welcomes to those who have recently signed up to follow.
