Mixing it up ~ Sandi's December Projects!

Hello, Blue Fern visitors! 
Sandi here with you today sharing 2 of my December projects.
It's so hard to grasp that 2015 is almost over! 


First up is a layout using the Vintage Christmas collection. I used a variety of papers as listed below and then built my background with super heavy gesso, a stencil and Imagine Ink mists in Persimmon, Cotton Candy and Leaf. 

My Clip Frame was treated with Cotton Candy mist and then heat embossed using both Petal and Poinsettia. The Berry Stem on the left was misted with Imagine Ink in Leaf and variegated with a random ink pad. The Blooming Foliage peeking from beneath the photo was treated the same. A few microbeads were added to both for more texture. 

The Garden Lattice Bits were misted with Cotton Candy and then randomly embossed with Petal and Poinsettia.  You can also see I've used a snippet of the Blooming Foliage tucked into my cluster.

I love scrapping with purple! And since I haven't had a lot of opportunity to use the DejaVu collection yet, I took this time to do so.
  (Love this early ingenue photo of Lucille Ball, 1930s. Photo credit to Tumblr, original photographer unknown.) 

The spectacular Circle Vine Frame seemed the perfect choice to add a little drama to my layout. It was coated with gesso, then misted with Imagine Ink in Jingle Bells. I did a little random embossing with a clear powder and then added in some purple with one of my gelatos. 

The Framington Medley was treated the same and used as a background layer. To emphasize my photo, I used color around the Circle Vine Frame and mixed in some microbeads as well. 

You can see some of my stamping in the background using the Garden Frolic stamp. 

I used more of the gelato color to create an ombre look on my Dream title. I finished the page with some random paint splattering.
