Ornaments were hung on the tree with care

Christmas is over and now is the time to create your beautiful layouts using those precious Christmas photos.

I picked a photo from where my grandson hung the ornaments on our tree.  This made me smile every time I walked past the tree.

I started with a cream sheet of cardstock and stamped tree and branch images then I used a stencil and molding paste to add the bricks. Finally used a green mist over the entire piece of cardstock

While the cardstock was drying I cut out the ornaments and the Merry Christmas words and then the edging under the photo.  I then cut all the flowers out using both the big and small dies and used ink to add color to the flowers.  I also used a tag and trees that I had in my stash.  The trees had been cut out from a pop can and then inked.  I cut out the ornaments out in the upper right hand of the page.

These are the dies that I used:

Poinsettia -small by Impression
Poinsettia-large by Impression

Once every thing was cut and the cardstock was dry I started adding all the layers.  My final step was to do the journaling.
