A little bit of Christmas

Hello again!
Now I'm back with a new layout. Last night I made a roll on my challenge list and I got #21 Bring out your foam stamps! Wow, those haven't been exercised in a while, that's for sure! But I'm really reluctant to get rid of anything so I've kept them for all these years and the fonts I have are really pretty so I decided to give it a try. When I made that layout of me as a kid I found another photo from my childhood which I thought was really sweet so I decided to make a layout of that.

I stamped the title with gold colored acrylic paint on black cardstock and when I was done I had some paint left on my tray so I painted some chipboard snowflakes with the same paint. Since the paint then needed to dry I couldn't finish the project until today.

I cut out the letters for the title, layered a background with papers from my pile (which is beginning to look rather small, btw) and glued it all together to look like this:

In case you wondering about the outfit, it's the traditional Lucia costume. On December 13th we celebrate Lucia in Sweden. It's kind of a celebration of the returning light when we are in the darkest season of the year.   

I started yet another project yesterday and I'll try to finish it now. See ya!

  2. Such a sweet memory! Love that stamping technique! Although I must admit I got rid of my foam stamps years ago. I got them, used them, decided I didn't like them and got rid of them within a month!
