Christmas Memories with Made With Love

Hello friends!

Can you imagine? Just 7 more days to Christmas! Time has passed by so fast that the year has been just a blurry of faces and places. Thank God for cameras that we can capture those moments to remember by!

Today, I'm on here to share a Christmas layout I created for my LSS Made With Love, using the amazing supplies that can be found at their store.

I had chosen a light and neutral paper from the Kaisercraft Christmas Wishes collection for my background paper as I wanted to use Distress Stains to create the color washes. I had a mixture of splashes (created by forcefully slamming down the tube of Distress Stains on its dabber) and washes (created by using water to dilute the paint). The brush strokes of the clear gesso applied to the background paper before the mediums were added lent a grungy look. I also had stenciled UTEE-embossed stars under all the Stains, resulting in little resist patterns all over.

More details in the close-ups:

Gold-foil words and die cuts as my embellishments. Also added in are Tree Toys chipboard (altered with embossing powder and Distress Glitter) from Blue Fern Studios and sequins from my own stash.

More Gold-foil words. These are a real treat to add to any layout! I also tucked in fussy cut poinsettias, another Blue Fern Studios chipboard (altered with embossing powder and Distress Glitter) and a wooden clock into my cluster.

Some sweet flowers and an epoxy sticker. You can see some of the finer background details like the different stamps I had used.

A lovely metal tag from Tim Holtz to top up the sentiment, nested on a bunch of sweet Christmas flowers from Prima Marketing.
