Eila is in Winter - brrrr!!

Eila could not stay away - she has sent us this gorgeous winter LO

'I've started to think about Christmas but not quite yet gotten to actually scrapping Christmas pages. I did some fussy cutting from the new Christmas collection, absolutely delish maroon and chocolate hues that I thought would ease me into the Holiday mood nice and gently.

I'm attaching it with this mail a smooth blending over to the Christmas projects the girls no doubt have sent and will send you shortly. If not, please let me know and I'll post in my blog anyway with a blurb about the papers.

The lady in the photo is nana Britt, i.e. my mother-in-law. She's going on 87 and is fit as a fiddle. She loves when I scrap her old family photos and gets this special twinkle in her eye and smile when I tell her that I will scrap her. This photo was taken last Christmas.

The background is made on watercolour paper with masking/modelling paste and mists in Sand, Old Lace and Creme de Cocoa. I then painted some of the dots with Glimmer Glam in Chandelier to get a glittery and frosty effect.

I have used both the small 10 cm and the medium 15 cm circle doilies from the shop, as well as a gold German scrap flourish that seems to be sold out. 
I absolutely adore the luscious velvet blooms in the shop, here I have tucked in cream primroses and purple violets in the clusters. 

The silver diamant├ęs were cut off from a ribbon - don't know what it's called in the shop.

The base for my page is fussy cut luscious chocolate brown and maroon leaves and flowers from the P6326 Christmas Music sheet and strip. The music sheet layered between the doilies was cut from the same paper.

Finally I embossed a fuzzy snowy effect in ivory and called it quits.

Wishing you a really wonderful weekend when it comes!
Hugs and kisses,
Gorgeous layout Eila - well done. Love all the embellishing - the diamante trim makes a fabulous addition to a flower.

Bye for now
