Sweet Christmas Memories | Belinda Jane

Hello beautiful friends! I hope you are all well and happy this Christmas Eve.

I am so happy to be with you today to share my final project for this month, and this year. Once again I’ve been delving into my stash of Christmas supplies to document some of my memories from past years.

For this project I used the Poinsettia Wreath Cut File. Although this cut file comes with two halves of a wreath, I decided to use just the bottom half.

I really wanted to play with some watercolour techniques for this layout and honestly, I just had so much fun with it. I created a base for my backed cut file using three different coloured inks which I watered down and very roughly sploshed around where I knew the cut file would sit.

And to fill in the top half of the wreath I had so much fun creating some painted watercolour foliage. This was such a simple but effective technique and I am so in love with the finished product.

I kept the remainder of my layout fairly simple. I chose three coordinating alphabet stickers for my title. I added some watercolour splatters around the wreath and used some of the gold foil stars that came with the alphabet stickers I used.

To finish the layout I tucked some additional bits of foliage that I die cut from coordinating patterned papers in and around my wreath cut file. And of course added a sprinkling of Nuvo drops for that sweet little finishing touch.

If you’d like to see how I created this layout in more detail I would love for you to take a look at my process video which is linked below.

Thank you so much for joining me today and I wish you a very Merry Christmas!
