A Christmas to Remember Using Kaisercraft Mint Wishes by Kerryn Fry

Good morning AAS Fans and Followers
It's Friday and that means it's my turn to share another project.
I thought while I was awaiting for my next delivery, I would squeeze one more page 
out of the gorgeous collection by Kaisercraft, Mint Wishes.
With Christmas fast approaching, I chose to do another festive page 
with an older photo of the Mr 3.
He was super cute back then, still is and was more than happy to pose, not so much now.

After my clean page last week, I thought I would go back to being messy!
Starting with Kraft cardstock, I worked out the basic plan for the layout 
of my page and put the patterned papers aside.
The background effect is some simple stencilling with Distress Oxide Ink 
and then some paint splatters also using Picket Fence Distress Paint and gold paint.

To help balance the page, I have cut the 2 Crafty title A Christmas To Remember in half.
It was then base coated using gold paint and allowed to dry.
The final coat is a thick layer of gold Stickles for that Christmas sparkle.


The 2 Crafty Fir Xmas Tree has been sponged with different shades of green Distress Paints.
The star and base have been painted gold and then a little Stickles added to the star.
I have combined the two colours of green and gold to decorate the 2 Crafty Presents.
Painted first and then more Stickles added to the gold parts.

The cluster of embellishments in the top right corner is a combination of 
the Kaisercraft Collectables and Christmas baubles from the wooden flourish pack.
I have used foam tape to some pieces to stagger the layers.

I have finished the page with some doodled faux stitching with a gold pen.
Thank you for visiting the blog today.
Hope you have a fabulous weekend and enjoy some crafting time.
Don't forget to join us again on Monday for Fiona's next project.
