Winter Layout

For my Giveaway press here

I'm so glad its the weekend!!

I made this layout for 2 challenges in January. First is the mood board challenge at the Maja Designs blog. The second is a sketch challenge from Scrap Friends

I took this picture out of the window of my car as we were driving down to Florida this past December. I think we were stuck in traffic and as I was looking out my window I could see the snow and ice frozen on the bushes and the landscape looked like a winter wonderland.

I stenciled some circles from a Crafters Workshop template using some paste. Then dabbed it with blue Shimmerz Pearlz.  It makes it look like snow is falling on the layout.

I used a Maya Road envelope to add hidden journal under the photo. 

The chipboard flourish is from 2 Crafty. I cut it in different  places and spread it around the layout.

It's so great how you've captured the winter feeling on this lo. Love the modelling paste with the circle, you're right that it gives a feeling of snow flakes falling around the lo.
