I love doing Christmas LO's, so much so that I actually have an album of nothing but Christmas LO's. This one was created for the Christmas category for the upcoming Gold Coast Show. I don't normally do double page LO's but it's mandatory for some of the categories. I thought this was a great way to use up a lot of the photos I had of the Christmas trees for last year.
Most of the materials on the LO are Kaisercraft, because I love their products and I have a really good outlet store near where I live. I've used some crackle medium on the chipboard pieaces just to add a bit more texture and lots of bling because I think that really works on Christmas LOs.
I went with hidden journalling for this one, using two journal tags. I think I'm actually just getting a bit lazy when it comes to remebering if find a place in the design to incorporate the writing so it's getting hidden right at the end. You can see in the corner's I've used some texture paste and green mist to add some more detail. The mask is from The Crafter's Workshop and I just had to buy it when I found it at my LSS because one of my favourite scrapbookers, Linda Eggleton, uses it on her LO's all the time and it always looks so cool.
I was inspired by Sketch #27 from Sketch Support for the background. For some reason I forget to print of the sketch though, so the LO kind of took on a life of it's own after the background stage.
