Time for another Taylored Expressions Blast from the Past hop! This month's focus is Christmas/holiday! This is my absolute favorite time of the year!! I love the weather, the cooking & baking, the family time... just everything about this time of year makes me happy. I used the Wings of Joy set... the images in this set are just adorable and the sentiments are perfect! This "Joy" image was just perfect to go with my paper. To add a little 'interest' I added some Liquid Applique to the hat on the birdie, some Crystal Effects to the berries of the holly and a Gold Metallic pen on the ribbon on the 'Y'. The sketch is by Sankari, of course... man can that girl throw out some amazing sketches!!! If you look closely at the Kraft panel, you can see that I used some VersaMark on the "Merry Christmas" stamp and kind of randomly stamped it all over the panel... it just keeps it from looking flat.
Well that's all I've got for ya for now, BUT if you do nothing else today you simply MUST check out the rest of these amazingly talented ladies! You'll be in the Christmas spirit in no time, and you may just get enough idea's to whip out those Christmas cards!
