Mixed Media Christmas Layout

Instructions:

The finished layout measures 12 x 12 inches. Cut a piece of paper 11 1/2  x 11 1/2"  yellow paper and glue it on a 12 x 12" red paper. Start by applying clear gesso on your sheet to protect it because you want to create a watercolor effect in your background that requires a lot of water. With a brush apply Dylusions ink spray color Cut Grass and add water to dilute the whole. Dry and do the same thing with Distress ink Stain color Twisted Citron. Then make droplets of green ink and red ink by shaking a brush gorged with ink over the sheet. Your background is ready.  

Cut different sized pieces of paper and glue slightly larger white papers underneath creating a 1/8" mat. Make a smaller montage for the lower left corner. Start with a 1 5/16" x 5 5/16" strip followed by a 1 5/16" x 5 5/8: and then a 1 3/4" x 4 1/4" strip. The sentiment size is 2 3/16" x 1 7/16". Make a larger montage in the upper right side start with two 3" x 3" squares, followed by a 6 3/8" x 3/14" strip, then a  2 5/8" x 5 3/4", then a 4 3/16" x 5 1/8", then a 3 3/8" x 4 1/2". Make a montage of these papers by overlaying them with 3D foam and adhering your photo on it.

Stamp your Poinsettia flowers with Vermillion ink onto white flower shaping paper, color the centre and shade the edge with the same color. Diecut with the coordinate die. Place facedown into the flower shaping mold, spritz with water and run through the diecutting machine to shape. When dry, give further shape with Deluxe flower shaping kit tools. Glue 3 layers together. In the center of the flowers make a hole and add stamens. (1 made 4 small flowers).  Also stamp in leaf green and die cut leaves. 

Put cheesecloth and add your flowers and leaves over it, next you your picture. Cut a sentiment, glue it on the left and also add cheesecloth, leaves and flowers.

To add a final touch, add baker's twine connecting your two groups of papers.
