30 Days of Christmas, Day 6

Good morning Junkies and welcome to Day 6 of the 30 Days of Christmas.  We will be bringing you 30 Days of Christmas joy and inspiration during October and into November.  Today, for your viewing pleasure, I've created a 2-page journal spread.

I used several of Technique Junkies Christmas stamps to create this two-page spread.  

For the left side, I stamped Star Power with metallic silver ink until the entire page was covered.  I then embossed the stars using silver embossing powder.  Once the embossing powder cooled, I sprayed Art Anthology Timeless and Silk Tie Colorations, blotting between applications until I had the color I was going for.  Since the embossing resists the sprays, all I had to do was wipe over them with a baby wipe.  I then stamped Hope and Peace from the Christmas Word Set of 4 with Deep Rose ink, cut them out, and applied them to my page.  I then sprinkled snowflake confetti all over.

For the right side, I stamped Star Power over half the page with metallic silver ink and then embossed with silver embossing powder.  I again sprayed with Art Anthology Timeless and Silk Tie Colorations, this time concentrating Timeless near the bottom of the page to simulate sunset.  I stamped Whimsical Winter twice: once using Sooty Blue ink for the bottom and the second time using Dusty Lime for the trees.  I cut them out and added them to my page.  To simulate snow, I ran a line of Frosted Lace Stickles along the bottoms of each of the trees' sections and then I scattered more snow confetti across the page.  Finally, I edged both pages using a red Sharpie.

I hope you enjoy this spread and that it gets you in the mood for Christmas.  

Until later...............
