The last challenge for 2010 is up over at the Get Picky challenge blog. And it's a beautiful Christmas image:Wow, I would love that sitting room! Or then again... thinking sticky fingers and dirty scuff marks... maybe not. LOL. Anyway, this is my layout:
Journaling: Jamie takes great delight in helping decorate the Christmas tree. He pulls all the decorations out of the box and puts them on the lower branches. And then he takes delight in making his own decorations.
Can you see the inspiration I've drawn from the image? Or should I say inspirations? Because I fell in love with so many of the elements of this page and was motivated to try to incorporate all of them on my page. Let's see, listing them:
The cream/green/silver colour scheme - yep!
The Christmas tree - the subject of my page, the photos, and also the feature embellishment on my page.
The wallpaper - I was rapt to find something very similar for my background.
The white framed mirror on the mantel - the white frame in my background.
The silver wreath on the mantel - the circular doily and tinsel matting for my main photo
The tassled throw rug on the couch - I heavily frayed a piece of canvas so the edges resemble those tassled ends, and popped it under my main photo.
The vase of white flowers on the coffee table - I've handcut white flowers from patterned paper and clustered them on either end of the strip of photos.
I think that's it! And I also think that's the last of my Christmas projects for this year!
I'm wishing you all a happy and prosperous new year! Is anyone making new year's resolutions? I haven't decided on any this year. I mentioned one to Phil the other day, but I've forgotten it already, so it couldn't have been too life-altering, lol!
That's it from me for this year!
