I just love the mix of gold and red in the Snow Village collection and to kick off our 12 Days Of Handmade Holidays Event I created a layout in the ‘Spirit of Christmas.’
In Norway where I live we have something called “Nisser” – they kind of look like garden gnomes – and the red hat my daughter is wearing is a knitted “nisselue” (Santa hat). These “nisser” were believed to live in barns where they took care of the farm and the animals.
I love to layer several papers, doilies, tiny bags, and tags under my photos and this layout is all about layering. I even used a stack of gold tissue to soften up the edges of this darling photo!
When I was asked to provide step by step instructions I struggled a bit because I normally just cut at my papers without measuring to achieve the effect I want. My other favorite technique is adding subtle background patterns with stencils and spray mists so this project includes a quick step for adding color to your white cardstock before building your layers!
