Good morning. Over on the Technique Junkies blog, we on the design team are currently working on the 30 Days of Christmas. I wanted to share with you the project I did for Day 6.
I used several of Technique Junkies Christmas stamps to create this two-page spread.
For the left side, I stamped Star Power with metallic silver ink until the entire page was covered. I then embossed the stars using silver embossing powder. Once the embossing powder cooled, I sprayed Art Anthology Timeless and Silk Tie Colorations, blotting between applications until I had the color I was going for. Since the embossing resists the sprays, all I had to do was wipe over them with a baby wipe. I then stamped Hope and Peace from the Christmas Word Set of 4 with Deep Rose ink, cut them out, and applied them to my page. I then sprinkled snowflake confetti all over.
For the right side, I stamped Star Power over half the page with metallic silver ink and then embossed with silver embossing powder. I again sprayed with Art Anthology Timeless and Silk Tie Colorations, this time concentrating Timeless near the bottom of the page to simulate sunset. I stamped Whimsical Winter twice: once using Sooty Blue ink for the bottom and the second time using Dusty Lime for the trees. I cut them out and added them to my page. To simulate snow, I ran a line of Frosted Lace Stickles along the bottoms of each of the trees' sections and then I scattered more snow confetti across the page. Finally, I edged both pages using a red Sharpie.
I hope you enjoy this spread and that it gets you in the mood for Christmas. For more of the 30 Days of Christmas, please visit the Technique Junkies blog at: http://techniquejunkies.blogspot.com/
