Make a Wish (2Crafty DT Reveal & SATW December)

I am back again with another 2Crafty Chipboard creation,
this time a very frosty and sparkly layout celebrating Winter and Christmas.

This layout was inspired by the gorgeous December mood board
over at Scrap Around the World, designed by Anna Komenda.
Obviously, I recreated the beautiful colour palette as well as many elements
from the images as snowflakes, flowers and the sparkling magic of Winter.

This month Scrap Around the World is collaborating with Stuck?!Sketches.
This is their December sketch challenge, 
gone live HERE on December 15th and designed by Laura Whitaker. 
I thought it went perfectly with the SATW mood board.

Now let's take a closer look at my layout
and all the 2Crafty chipboard used,
starting with the "Make a Wish" title.

Below you can see the beautiful and elegant "Festive Branch",
a piece of which I cut to use on another part of my layout,
and one of the many pieces from the "Handdrawn Stars" set.
I covered the chipboard with white paint, then added a little blue paint and blue
distress stain followed by more white and shimmer champagne paint.
I finished off with a red shiny sequin in the center of each snowflake.

I added a subtitle by using the words 'magic' and 'believe'
from the "Christmas Mini Word Set 2".
I decorated with more "Handdrawn Stars".

I cut up one of the dangling snowflakes from the "Festive Branch"
to add it to the flower cluster and did the same to the snowflakes 
from both the "Christmas Decorative Ornate Borders".

Aside from chipboard, I used many flowers from Petaloo 
which I dabbed with different shimmery paints...

and a lovely Zva Creative red crystal flourish.

The picture is of a coworker's adorable daughter named Audrée.
This layout just wouldn't be the same without this fabulous photo!

Well, I hope you've enjoyed these past 2 days of 2Crafty inspiration!
