For this layout, I was inspired by the beautiful November Moodboard. Those gorgeous triangles just jumped out at me, and so I recreated them and made them into little trees!
My background paper is from Basic Grey Juniper Berry, and I added a lot of white gesso first to blend out some of those black loops. After that I came in with spray inks and gelatos to add lots of beautiful teals and blues. I used some of the light teal cardstock to cut lots of different sized trees, and then added in my triangle trees. You can see how I created those in my process video below if you're interested :)
I think these turned out awesome! I used some of the gold Color Shine and Silver Metallic Paint Dabber to create the gold and silver triangles. I added gold machine stitching and then adhered them down in layers with my cardstock trees. I fussy cut "Merry & Bright" from a 3x4 card, and those cut glitter stars are from the Maggie Holmes Shine line.
These Thickers!! Yes!! I love that you can add color and customize them! And I love the shadow effect. I just used a small brush and and some spray ink to color these in.
For some layers under my trees and photo, I tore some patterned paper and cardstock for an uneven look.
These adorable acrylic shapes come in the kit...and let me tell you, they are awesome! I hope we get more of these in the future. They are such a fun and unique embellishment. Here you can see how the gesso fades out some of the pattern and allows inks or gelatos to blend perfectly. I also added in some of the Pinkfresh Studio puffy stickers here and an exclusive wood veneer.
That color! So yummy. I think I add teal or blue to everything I make...I can't help it! I just adore it so much. And it looks beautiful mixed with gold :) I just had to add in some shiny gold thread here.
One final close-up...I added in this cute deer puffy sticker and one of the exclusive flair buttons right on top of my photo.
Here's my process video if you're interested. I hope you find some inspiration in it!
