I was inspired by Jill Foster (PB&J) on Monday with her latest video here.
I loved the colours she used, and I immediately had this idea that popped into my head, which happens when I am relaxed, as I was yesterday.
I know I said I was not doing any more creating until after Christmas, well I lied........but it was only a little lie nothing too awful.
I just had to sit at my craft table and satisfy my stimulated senses after watching her video, and when you think about it, this is the main reason Jill produces these video instalments, so that people like me can make an excuse to make something beautiful.
The first Noel....meaning the first birthday and is an alternate word for Christmas.
The word was typed and cut on my Cricut.
And like Jill I used distress stains;
fired brick, wild honey, peeled paint, broken china and finally dusty concord.
I distressed the background exactly the same, then I dry embossed using two different folders.
My sentiment was coloured using the distress inks.
Numbers were cut on patterned paper then glossy accents applied.
I had to embellish a little, even though I know it probably would have held up with out any.
I am entering this Tag into:
I do think that is me for now but don't be surprised if it is not!
