Ho Ho Ho using Bella Blvd Merry Christmas by Kerryn Fry

Hi Everyone!
Today I have joined Amanda on the Christmas band wagon,
creating  my first page using the gorgeous collection Bella Blvd Merry Christmas.
I love the inclusion of blue and grey in this collection and the gold highlights.
The photos were taken way back in 2011,
this beautiful boy was only 7 and cheeky as ever.

A Kraft cardstock base is perfect for the bright festive colours,
most of it has been covered with patterned paper,
but love the frame of Kraft cardstock around the outside.
I've added a few layers of paper, with the pop of gold foil shining through.

I continued the gold theme onto the 2 Crafty chipboard.
The 2 Crafty Xmas Polaroid Frame has been given a base coat of white gesso.
Once completely dry, I have covered the frame with Gold Brilliance Ink
and given the frame three good coats.
The words 'Santa's Helper' has been highlighted with Diamond Stickles.

The 2 Crafty Funky Stars were painted with acrylic paint, 
using a roughly blended mixture of blue, turquoise and white.
After drying time, I have stamped the stars with white ink 
The finishing touch is a coat of Dimensional Magic

I have done a little fussy cutting from the Borders paper and Daily Details paper.
The holly leaves, present and heart have been used as embellishments for the page.
The 2 Crafty Deer was painted with Navy acrylic paint
and the horns covered with gold ink. 
Dimensional Magic used as a final coat.
Some of the elements have been elevated on foam tape.

The title of the page has been cut from the 2 Crafty border HoHoHo.
After a layer of white gesso, the top half of the words have been covered with gold ink,
then using scrap paper as a mask, I have painted the bottom part with red paint.
Then adding a finishing coat of Dimensional Magic.

I love creating Christmas pages!
Thanks from dropping by the blog today.
Hope you have a great weekend 
and find some free time to create.
Join us again on Monday to see Fiona's next project.
