Hello, fellow crafters! Hope you have been having a safe week. It has been an ICE-plague here in my part of Texas with frigid temperatures and often long hours without heat and electricity during some of the coldest weather on record .. whew! Can't wait for this weekened's warm-up! To those of you who endure this every winter, I tip my hat to you!
Anyway, my post will be somewhat short but I did want to get my SOUS project posted in time for the reveal. This layout is really gorgeous IRL, at least IMHO .. heehee! Unfortunately it did not photograph too well even with a bit of sun. The papers are Creative Imaginations IOD Night Divine from my December Swirlydoos kit. These are somewhat muted and they may account for the somewhat drab appearance, along with our cloudy skies.
These were family photos taken at Christmas and it felt good to get some of that done .. I am still way behind! I loved using the large die cut .. it set a great backdrop to the page. I have used gold braid from my Bo Bunny Noel stash, along with some Petaloo Canterbury blooms in burgundy and some holly leaves. To get an even darker shade, I painted some Burnt Red Glimmer Mist on my blooms and Forest Green Glimmer Mist on my leaves. I love painting with my mists versus misting with them!
I wrapped a large bow around one corner like you would a gift and then topped the bow with one of my blooms. My journaling tag dangles from the bow.
Just another close-up of one of the Night Divine embellishments which I used as my title.
A close-up of the braid and some of the blooms.
I got this shot thinking you could read the journaling but it's still rather hard .. oh, well, it was nothing special. I am just trying to do a better job at journaling this year even if it's short.
If you haven't already been over to Stuck on U Sketches , I hope you will visit and downlaod the sketch for this time. Then link up your project so that we can see what you did! Also, don't forget to check back next Friday at SOUS for another tutorial.
Hope you have a great Super Bowl weekend ... it's been a little crazy down here this week! And will likely get crazier until it's all over! Whew!
