I wanted to share my latest layout. I have to say that it is not my typical kind of layouts. I am not used to this type of work. It was a big challenge for me.
It took me 3 days to finish it. The christmas tree is all hand cut and hand pieced. It has rhinestones in red, green and clear, a bead garland and bows. The star is stickled and glazed. The window has sewed curtains. I put a transparency to give it a glass effect. Threw the window you can see the snowflakes and snow. I put a garland on the top of the window made of the beads and fiber and 3 tiny flowers. The bows make it seem like they are holding the curtain open but they have a hand sewed stitch to hold them back. The gifts are a square punch in 2 different sizes and then I covered them with bows and a charm. The little girls dress is a red/burgandy fabric with lace around her waist and the bottom, then a bow. Her hair has 3 mini roses on it. She is holding her bear which is also hand cut and pieced. The fireplace is cut with the cricut. I made the fire with a shiny orange paper, it looks in person as if the fire was really lit. I made the stockings out of fabric. There is also a garland on the top made with beads and a fiber. Same as the one over the window. I also added the tiny flowers to it. The santa clauses are a rub on which I put on regular cardstock and then I cut around them. The layout holds 3 matts, one is on the layout and the other 2 are behind the fireplace and behind the window.
I really enjoyed making this layout. I was very time consuming but was well worth it after it is all said and done.
