As Santa is on his way, over at Try it on Tuesday our new challenge for the next two weeks is Guess Who’s Coming? …. Santa, where you will find some amazing creations from my Design Team teamies to inspire you!
We would like to see a Santa somewhere on your creations, so here’s my Santa related art journal page – I hope you like it!
I started by covering the page with some Santa decoupage paper using a glue stick. Then I used some green card from a topper set which I cut into a rectangle and some strips, they are all edged with gold border outline stickers. I stuck them in place using double-sided tape along with a framed Santa image from the same topper set and an envelope addressed to Santa. Next I embellished the page with some gold relief stickers; this included Santa’s sleigh filled with gifts, snowflakes and stars and also some holly and candy canes which I added to the background. To finish, I added three 3D stickers of a candy cane, some holly and a little robin.
This pretty shop is in Lytham and is full of interesting items for the garden; it always has lovely displays that cascade onto the street front. It’s where our friends bought the metal Mushrooms for our garden, you can see them here.
It reminded me of my page with all the Santa memorabilia (grin!).
We always enjoy meeting up with our friends for a walk and a drink so whilst walking in Lytham we went to a café called Zest.
As T Stands for Tuesday I’m joining the T Gang with my hubby’s hot chocolate – yum! Happy T Day everyone!
Sorry I haven’t been around the last week or so, my Dad has had heart surgery and I’ve been busy visiting him and helping my mum whilst he has been in hospital. I’m pleased to say he is home now and doing ok – yay!
Thanks for joining me today! If you have any questions or comments, I would love to hear from you.
