Winter - Wendy Meffan

Hi foxy friends! It's Wendy here and I'm sharing a layout using some of the gorgeous word perspextives from the December Foxbox. At the beginning of the year we had a sudden rush of snow and were lucky enough to pop out and get some snow photos and of course I never got around to scrapping them all so the Winter perspextive was perfect for my photo.

I had decided to make a wreath layout as I had a lot of wintery ephemera from last years December hip kit which I hadn't used. I used my pearlised watercolours and painted a blue circle and then added a second layer of silver to it.

I wanted the Winter perspextive to be the main focus and title of the layout so planned to place it above the photo. I matted the photo and added a chipboard frame over it and kept moving it around the circle until I settled on it being on the bottom left and then placed the Winter perspextive at the top. I then added a few pieces of ephemera around the perspextive and raised some on sticky fixers for dimension.

Then I spent quite a while with all the wintery ephemera arranging it in circle until i was happy with it. I raised some pieces on sticky fixers and left some pieces flat to the page.

Once the circle was complete I felt the area by the photo was a little sparce, so I cut a strip of black checked paper and added some mini pompoms and then fussy cut some little houses and made a little scene to the right of the photo.
