T'was the Night Before Christmas using Cocoa Vanilla Studio Merry & Bright by Kerryn Fry

Hi everyone!
Today I am sharing another page created with the collection,
Cocoa Vanilla Studio Merry & Bright.
The perfect Christmas Eve photos of Mr H,
reading stories and sending lego figures around on the Christmas train.
I've used B&W photos to let the colours in the collection 
and the background stand out.

The base cardstock is Bazzill Heavy Duty Marshmallow.
The perfect cardstock for mixed media.
The first layer in the background is Distress Oxide Inks & water.
Worn Lipstick & Abandoned Coral applied with plastic packaging
and a spritz of water.

Once the background was dry,
I've stencilled with the same Distress Oxide colours, 
Then using Kaisercraft Texture stamps and gold ink.
I have stamped tiny dots and old grid patterns as another layer.

The Die Cut Ephemera pack provided 
most of the embellishments for the page.
The tags, houses, flags, frame and hearts
have been added with foam tape.
I've added a little sparkle to different elements 
of the embellishments with Stickles Glitter Glue

The journal spot and star strip have been hand cut
The stars have been highlighted with Stickles Glitter Glue.
The hearts have been outlined with a gold pen.

The B&W photos have been given another layer
 with Raven Cardstock and lifted with cardboard.
I've added a few more patterned paper layers under the photo.
Then highlighted a few papers with fake stitching using a black pen.

The subtitle has been hand cut from the Oh What Fun paper.
I've cut it into two parts and added it to each photo.
I've used foam tape to give it more dimension.

has been covered with gold ink
and attached between the two photos.

Thank you for visiting the blog today,
hopefully you have been inspired by the steps.
Have a lovely weekend
and may there be plenty of crafting.
Please join us again on Monday for Fiona's next project.
