Friday 8 October 2021


 This layout was made for the Dotty About Flair - Monochromatic Madness - Heamatite (Metallics) challenge.

I chose these photos of Catherine and me in Washington DC just before Christmas 2019. On my last night we went to Enchant,
a Christmas light show. The little wooden reindeer were perfect as there were reindeer hidden amoung the displays for us to find. (If you look closely behind us in the left photo you will see a little red light, which is Rudolph's nose!)
The challenge required two photos and wooden veneer.

I used:
Metallic card - silver and gold
Paper straws
white gel pen
Black Bazzill
Glittery striped patterned paper
Tim Holtz Sizzix Thinlits - Woodland and Snowflake
Distress Mica Spray - Crooked Broomsticks
DAF flair
Wooden raindeer
Die cut 'Wonderful'
