Christmas Frame

My last Christmas piece for 2012, in fact I have cleared all my Christmas supplies back into the box and put under the spare bed lol.

This was a Marianne frame I did with my workshop ladies last week at The Art of Craft, it was great fun to make and they loved theirs to take home and display over the festive period.


Design papers from Best Creations Inc ........


Coredinations papers, computer generated words ..................


Punches and Tim Holtz, Memory Box and Marianne dies ...............


Vintage images .................


Glitter, acrylic paint, crackle paint and embellishments.

Only one more sleep. We have the family and some friends for dinner tonight, the family come again for dinner tomorrow, then off to our son and daughter-in-law's for Boxing day. It's a busy holiday as we will be out for a friend's birthday on the 28th and to another friend on the 29th and then a small party here for new year's eve on the 31st.


Wishing you peace and happiness this festive season wherever you are in the world.

Such a lovely piece it is too. Well done on clearing all your Christmas bits and bobs away too - maybe something I should consider in the New Year.

Here's hoping that you have a wonderful Christmas and can look forward to a Happy 2013 too

What a beautiful project! I love how you've added so many elements outside the boxes, and extending off the edges. No doubt all your students love theirs, as well!
