The "Mixed Buttons" come in all different sizes. There are 20 in the pack with a mixture of one or two holes in them. I choose a selection to add to the canvas. I coloured them and heat embossed them to give a gloss effect.
I'm so impressed at how realistic they look compared with the real buttons I also included on the canvas. A bit of a glossy finish and no one would know the difference.
I also incorporated the large doily from the "Doilies" set. I simply covered it with white gesso to marry in with the paper doilies I used as background paper.
I've also added this beautiful "Elise's Dress Form". I covered the under layer with some small floral patterned paper and painted the top with a light brown, finishing it all off with a rubbing of white gesso.
My second piece today is my Christmas layout that I've also incorporated with the Scrap Around the World challenge for December.
The mood board is so delicious, I couldn't help myself and I had the perfect 2Crafty Chipboard pieces in mind.

"Christmas Time Word"
"Multi flower - Whispy"
I love these "Whimsy" flowers. I think they look very chrismassy almost like Poinsettia's. I covered one with a texture of white modelling paste and the other with black modelling paste. I also added some bling using glitter and micro beads.
I couldn't resist adding a couple of the "Mini Reindeer's". This one is simply painted black with gesso but the other one I also covered in glitter because it's Christmas and I can!
You will also see, jotting out from around the layout, some of the "Circular Panel". I've covered them in white modelling paste to give them some texture, a bit like snow or white icing. They poke out from under bits of the creation.
Of course I had to add a Christmas title. I decided to use the "Christmas Time" word except I only used the Christmas part of it and added Merry in sticker letters.
My last share with you is a page dedicated to my so so so beautiful sister.

"hand Drawn Heart Frames"
"Loopy word Beautiful"
The inspiration behind this layout, other than my sisters beautiful photo, is the piece of lace I've incorporated into the background. It was sent to me by a lovely friend, Lee from Tasmania, who I met through scrapping. I've been waiting for the perfect chance to use it. The "Heart Silhouette" sits perfectly above the lace. I inked them and heat embossed them to look rustic and the little one I added Vintage Photo Distress embossing powder.
I've also incorporated the large "Hand Drawn Heart Frame". Again I coloured it with ink to coordinate with the background and heat embossed it to give it some shine.
Finally I added the "Loopy font Beautiful" also coloured and Heat embossed. I didn't cover it completely so it would have a mottled and rustic effect. It's the perfect title for this page.
I hope you've enjoyed my shares this month.
I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and safe new year and I'll catch you all in 2015.
