For this page, I made use of pastel prints included in the November Scrapbook Circle kit. While the kit also had some very traditional colors of the season, I did want to make good use of the pretty pastels.
I was still enamored with more of a straight paper approach, so no watercolors, paints, mists, or even splatters. Printed paper, tissue paper, some punched snowflakes, cute little tabs, as well as some stickers make up the layers behind the photo.
To continue the tree theme, I used almost all the various tree stickers, placing some on either side of the photo, along with an acetate snowflake and a sprinkling of sequins.
We also received those fuzzy mini pom poms and once they were glued onto two pieces of bakers twine, they made two cute little buntings to hang below the photo and the title.
One more tree sticker, the be bright sticker, a couple few more sequins and a few slices of patterned paper make up the cluster at the bottom of the page.
Two pieces of patterned paper (the same papers used to layer beneath the photo) cut into banner shapes provided a base for my title (part acetate words and part sticker!). Adding sequins and the other little pom pom bunting piece kind of finished this area of the page.
Once I added the scribbly outlining and my journaling, the page was complete!
The pastels worked I think because our Miss Bella was wearing a lavender and aqua coat, had aqua, turquoise and pink in her hat and Mr. Jackson was wearing mostly neutrals. Adding that one little Beautiful and Bright sticker picked up on his dark jacket. There you have it, my take on a traditional subject done in non-traditional pastel colors.
So be traditional, in a non-traditional sort of way~
