Happy Monday! Hope everyone had a fun weekend! Who’s ready for another giveaway? Since we are in the season of giving Creative Embellishments is giving away a $50.00 gift voucher to the store. I am not as creative as some manufacturer’s/companies when it comes to giveaways so I went this route. I figured giving away a voucher was best because this way you can pick any products you like. I have set up a rafflecopter below. Just follow the instructions in the rafftlecopter and please share our giveaway. I will be randomly drawing a winner and announcing on December 26th. Thanks so much.
Today I am also sharing Pages 4 and 5 of my December Daily. My husband is an independent contractor for a delivery service. Almost like Santa’s helper..hee hee. Lately he has been working long days and is delivering over 200 packages a day. December 4th he got home at 9:00pm and started at 5:30 am. The monies nice but the hours not so much. He hates photos but I caught one of him anyway. He seems to always have a goofy look on his face.
I added silver stickles to the title pieces Tis The Season. The trees I shaded in some green with Faber Castell big pens. I wasn’t perfect because I was trying for a bit of dimension. It looks better in real life. I then added some modeling paste for a snowy effect. I then added some red rhinestones. The candy canes I used Tim Holtz distressed paint in picket fence. I was afraid to use red because I thought it would blend in with the background. I simply colored the fence in with black permanent marker. I forgot to add glossy accents for a shinier look. I will add it though. The snowflake was also altered with distress paint.
Page 5 is about our new tradition. This is our second year doing it . My girls and I wear the same clothes on either x-mas eve or day. We like to match. It’s just something fun I figured we would do since we are getting older and can buy clothes at the same store. This year I bought our outfits from Aeropostale.com. I enjoy buying online. I have a picture of the receipt on a tag inside the little pouch.
I left the little wood bells natural. They fit in with the color scheme of this page nicely. I even used a piece of cardboard box since we will be receiving our clothes in a box in the mail. On the chipboard mailbox, holly and berry flourish, other flourish and snowflakes I used different colors of Tim Holtz ( yes I love tim holtz products) distress paints and stains. I added a little snow with modeling paste to the top of the mailbox.
