Christmas Toys

Candy says, KAYA!

Despite the fact that distressing is something I almost always do, I had a difficult time because of the subject. I usually avoid Christmas LOs. This time, I figured, I might as well start doing them especially since I'm accumulating special paper for this occasion.


Journaling:
All I want for Christmas are more... Christmas Toys.

Materials:
Love Elsie Noel Tree Lot, Tinkering Ink Yuletide Joyous Noel/Mulled Wine, Daisy d's Rub Ons Telling the Story, Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist Merlot, Brilliance Moonlight White, misc. gold ribbon, Carolina's grey cord, Carolina's lace, Pigma Micron 03 pen.

Techniques Used:
Folding and sanding the photo, inking the photo, paper tearing, rolling the sides of the LO, spraying mist around the sides of the LO + rubbing same mist on the undersides of the rolled portions.

About ME:
I love making LOs of my son and of my ancestors. I am very comfortable with the vintage look but love experimenting with bright colors, esp. earth and nature colors, whenever possible. Scrapbooking is a passion and an expression of my soul and of my life. You can check out my work at http://eyecandyscrap.blogspot.com.

Wow, Candy, that's a lot of work, but it sure shows! The layout's exquisite... parang show piece!

Candy said...

Thanks, ladies! Nina, iyung photo, I literally folded wherever, then sanded on the fold. The idea is to make a frame around the subject in the photo. Then, I just inked the sides of the photo. The downside though is that the photo folds up quite a lot in the creases so I had to use plenty of photo adhesives! Hehehe.

When I saw your LO I said to myself, "this must be too easy for Candy." kasi I know how your style requires a lot of distressing. But then I just read your blog and I was surprised nahirapan ka pala sa lagay na yan eh ang ganda ng outcome. :) hehe. Thanks for the distressing tips. :)
