PLS: Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas

Saturday, December 22, 2018

Welcome to the weekend, y'all!  I have a page that features a little something from nearly every Christmas collection in the Pretty Little Studio Shop, for you all, today.  It just so happens to be featured on the Pretty Little Studio blog this morning and showcases my family's sweet, pet bunny, Snowflake.  Enjoy!
I started this page by adding a puddle of forest green watercolor to the left side of my 12" x 12" watercolor paper, base page and splattering it with that same shade of watercolor, as well as pink, red, and aqua watercolors.  I then smeared Peeled Paint, Barn Door, and Spun Sugar Distress Inks through a circle template before splattering everything once again, but this time with Pure Black and Titanium White, acrylic paints.  That set the stage for my photo, which was set atop a bed of the Let It Snow printed paper, hand-cut in the shape of a banner, as well as a couple of Christmas Favs 3x8 Pocket Cards, hand-cut in the same manner, and an "oh deer" Christmas Words Word Flags Cut-Apart.
All of the hand-cut banners were anchored with silver-threaded, straight, machine stitching and topped with my photo, which was matted with white cardstock; backed with a snippet of cheesecloth for additional texture; and wrapped, three times, with a length of Baker's Twine, tied in a bow.  It was also embellished with a "spread christmas cheer" 'Tis the Season Flair Button, backed with a tangle of silver thread...
and flanked with Snow & Hot Cocoa Die-Cut trees.  The tree to the left of the photo was further dressed up with a "25" Merry Christmas Circle Cut-Apart, as well as a Wood Partridge Vintage Sticker, backed with white cardstock, hand-cut out, and popped up with foam tape.
The two to the right of the photo back our Snowball Vintage Die Cut, popped up with foam tape, as well as another Wood Partridge Vintage Sticker, prepared in the same way as above.
A trio of additional Merry Christmas Circle Cut-Aparts trail off to the right side of the design, amidst a scattering of Gift Wrap, Tree Topper, and Pink Petals Sequins, which can be found throughout the design, along with a half dozen silver metallic Snowflakes Vellum Die Cuts.
A couple of "MERRY CHRISTMAS" & "UNDER THE TREE" Nice List Word Stickers...
and a Fawn Flair Button complete the look.
Don't forget to add the December 2018 Freebie Santas to your carts this month with any $35 or more purchase.
Thanks ever so much for stopping by, friends!  Have a blessed Christmas and a magical New Year!
