It's Beginning to Look A Lot Like Christmas

Just 3 more sleeps til all the good little boys & girls wake up at the crack of dawn... anticipating all their wishes come true!

With that being said... I have been finishing up the projects for the holiday~ 

Start off with a Phone book... I could not find sheet music this time ~ 
roll the cones & adhere them to a circle cut from Cardboard.

Start to add layers of Golden Bronze Spay paint 
(spray this outside on a non windy day) 
Be sure to do many fine layers to keep paper from going soggy...
then a final coat (or 2) of spray on Gold Glitter

Next was to create the center medallion
Most of this I cut out with my Cricut machine and the atristy cartridge 
(you can order yours here)

The Stamped image came from White Pines Scrapbooking Workshop ~ only available til December 31st... so order it now!

I first stamped with Versa Mark ink & then Gold Embossing powder 

The paper is from an expired paper packet called Pears & Partridge (LOVE it)
White pines would work just as well... or any paper of your choice!

Create layers using B&T paper, our gorgeous Gold Glitter paper,  & Colonial White Card Stock 
Pieces were layered using Foam tape Adhesive

Then Using a glue gun, attach to the centre of the wreath.

Don't forget to comment so you can be entered into the draw... here are the details
