Traditions


We Scrap have a November challenge and one of them was for a photo-less page, so I decided to have a go using some more of the papers from my Handmade Hannah Christmas Box.  I used the Teresa Collins number piece for the background and then added some brush strokes of gesso...and then sprinkled some glitter over the top, which you can't really see in the photos.  I made some smaller tags out of kraft paper, and stitched around the edge and added some ribbon to the middle.  Each tag represents a tradition at Christmas in our house from decorating the tree (another Michelle tree), advent candles from my Mum - which I made out of the pearls, and then cut a flame. Nativity productions represented with a star covered in glossy accents and then some more glitter, wrapping presents decorated with a paper bow.  Going to Church on the day itself - not having a stamp I had to draw this and then added some liquid pearls for the snow, then spending Christmas Day with the family - I stamped and cut out the word then added some little hearts decorated with glossy accents.  I made a little rolled banner to journal the tradition.  When it came to the title...I had run out of t's so I used the inverse of the sticker and then filled it with stickles glitter glue.  Here is a close up of a few of the tags and details.
