Deck the Halls | Terri Morris

Hello December! I've been looking back at my unfinished 6x8 December album from last year and was determined to try and get it finished before I started my 2020 December album. However, I have failed miserably.

Check out the process video here:

The first layout is a full 6x8 page with a patterned paper background documenting our tree from last year. I used the fern tree from Fox Stamp set #2 and Leaf Green Archival Ink to add extra leaves to the bacground paper which is from Crate Paper Merry Days collection.

I used the Presents and Bows perspextives set to add embellishment to this page. I used the large present to create a 'pot' for the chipboard christmas tree. Then the other smaller presents under the tree in the photo to represent presents ready to open on Christmas Day.

I then created a second page for my album with a less traditional festive feel, again using the Crate Paper Merry Days collection.

Again I altered the background paper, this time painting the stars with pearlescent watercolours and then stamping small snowflakes in Watering Can grey ink.
