The Scrapbook Store - Lemoncraft Christmas Greeting Collection

Hi Everyone,

Today I have my second layout created for The Scrapbook Store using the beautiful new Lemoncraft Christmas Greetings Collection.

December 25th
 This beautiful collection has a lovely vintage feel to it in traditional Christmas colours, which I love as my children are young adults now, so for me, it's a bit of a challenge to use some of the cuter Christmas paper ranges.

To tie in with the vintage feel of this Collection I decided to grunge it up a little by tearing and layering my papers, then using the Prima gold crackle medium and random misting.

I have added a trailing flower cluster in Christmas colours, then highlighted the red flowers with solar gold Pearlex Powdered Pigment mixed with a little water and applied with a small brush to tie in with my gold crackle background and the sparkle elements.
 My Kaisercraft wooden flourish was altered by first applying a coat of Faber-Castell gesso, then embossing with the Lindy's Weeping Willow embossing powder, giving it several coats by reheating each time to apply the embossing powder.  I reheated one last time, then whilst hot randomly applied some of the Prima microbeads.  Once cooled, I painted little touches of the solar gold Pearlex pigment. to add some highlights.  The Merry Christmas title was painted with gesso, then coated with Prima gold crackle medium.
