Steps for creating this simple page layout created and adhered to a prepared journal page

  1. Prepare the journal page with 2 coats of Gesso, dry off.  
  2. Cover the page with Starry Night A6 stencil and Colour paste – Snow thickly, dry off.  Repeat this process adding more stars across the page, allow to dry completely.
  3. Spritz the journal page with water then spray the Sapphire Colour Spray, allow the colour to move, drip over the page  Dry off.
  4. Flick drops of Colour Spray  – Bubblegum ink over the journal page.  Set aside to dry while completing next steps.
  5. Cut the Nutcracker Sweet Bauble sheet down to approx 16cm x 19cm (or to suit the size of your art journal).
  6. Rough up the edges of the card with scissors.
  7.  Nutcracker Sweet - cut apart sheet, select some images to fussy cut, e.g. nutcracker, large posy of flowers, bauble, off-cuts of border strips.
  8. Fussy cut one of the Nutcracker Tags from the Nutcracker Sweet  collection.
  9. Tear an offcut from another of the card paper (red design).
  10. Run the Alphabet metal die letters J O Y through the machine using the offcut of red card paper.
  11. Assemble the elements onto the card (see image below for composition).  Adhere all the elements to the page with adhesive.  The bauble, posy of flowers and Nutcracker soldier were mounted with tape to stand off the page.
  12. Adhere the Rhinestones; 1 to bauble, 1 to Tag and 1 added to the centre of each letter.

I hope you enjoy creating with this cute mini collection as much as I did ... the ideas are limitless as to what you can do with this amazing Christmas collection.

Bye for now ... Linda
