'Opening Presents' by Tammy Klingner

Hi there 2Crafties!!

Tammy  here today sharing a Christmas inspired layout titled:

'Opening Presents'

I had so much fun creating that Christmas wreath with lots of 2Crafty Chipboard!
I used the following pieces:
'Opening Presents Title'
'Corner Sweet Holly'
'Frame Viney Circles'
'Corner Holly Vines'
'Tiny Hearts and Stars'

I absolutely adore this time of the year.
Everything about it is magical!!

This month 2Crafty Chipboard is sponsoring the fabulous CSI Challenges.
I solved Case No 267......

I was inspired by the gorgeous colours of the Scene and also the whimsical feel.

I had so much fun solving the case and used lots of the clues - dots, Christmas/holiday,
 tags, stars, animals (birds and deer), garland, stamps and string.

You can head to their challenge site HERE to see the list of clues.

I began by applying white gesso to ALL of the chipboard.

I then added white acrylic paint to everything too.

I trimmed down the 'Frame Viney Circles', 'Corner Sweet Holly' and the 
 'Corner Holly Vines'. I needed them to fit into a circular shape as I wanted
 to create a Christmas wreath.

I then applied watercolour paint to various individual pieces, just to highlight 
some of the beautiful elements of the chippy - so fun!

Just look at those gorgeous 'Corner Sweet Holly' pieces, with the holly and the birds!

Super cute!

I added a few of the stars from the 'Tiny Hearts and Stars' Pack,
 to give a touch more of that gorgeous blue colour.

I just popped them in here and there.

For the 'Opening Presents title', I heat embossed it with white emboss powder,
 just to give a slightly different finish to the other pieces.

I added some pen marks to some of the holly, and also added a stamped leaf -
 these were a perfect addition to go with the whimsical feel.

That's it from me today, enjoy this magical time of the year, and I will see you
 a bit later on with another creation.
Until then you can always check out my Blog.
