Christmas Tree Adventure & Winter Wonderland ~~Imaginarium Designs~~

Hi Again Sweet Friends,  Today I'm sharing a couple of DT projects for Imaginarium Designs.

For my first project I used the beautiful 7 Dots (9th Wave) paper collection.  I loved the colors of these papers and wanted to do a monocromatic layout using the Alphas as a photo mat and the cute little Christmas Trees from Imaginarium Designs.  To alter the chipboard I first gessoed them and after they dried I dry brushed some Range Ink - Perfect Pearls Embellishing Pigment - Aged Patinas to the chipboard and I love the results.  After that I applied a dab of gesso here and there on the chipboard.

I used a couple of Tim Holtz Stencils with moulding paste on the layout and applied the Perfect Pearls to that after dried.  For the Christmas Trees I used a white felt pen to outline the design of the trees.  I used Tim Holtz's Christmas Wreath Die Cut, I thought it was perfect for this layout!!  This cute photo is of my niece's little guy Carter leaving to go in search of the perfect Christmas Tree.  Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you enjoy!!

For my second project I did a layout using the beautiful babble ornaments, Merry Christmas, Twigs, and Two Reindeers.  To alter the chipboard pieces I first gessoed them and after they dried I painted them with some Tim Holtz Distress Ink (Weathered Wood).  After that I applied some glitter to all the pieces.  Sorry the light's not that great today and the sparkle of the pieces just doesn't show too well, but it's beautiful in real life!!  I also used some Tim Holtz Stencils with gesso along with some Tim Holtz "Snow Flurries" and "Baroque" behind and on the sides of the photo.  The paper line is from Bo Bunny's Christmas Collection from last year.  Thanks again for stopping by and I hope you enjoy!!
