Christmas Pages with a Difference

Hello and welcome to the Imaginarium Designs blog.
Leonie here today and I have two scrapbook pages to share with you.
Christmas pages of course, because we're well and truly into this most wonderful time of the year.  
I'm seeing gorgeous green and red Christmas decorations popping up all
over the place.
However I thought that I would use some non-traditional
colours combinations for these two pages.  
Just for something a little different.

This first one is a combination of pink, aqua and lime green.

I used these cute little Imaginarium Designs chipboard Christmas trees to embellish this page, colouring them with acrylic paints and then coating them with Kindy Glitz for some sparkle.

 How cool is this Family Snap Shots frame?  
I can think of many different ways this frame could be used.  
I placed some patterned paper under the word 'shots' and coloured the frame with Acrylic paint.

Merry Christmas


Onto my second page now which is a combination of pink, red and purple.
It features a picture of my daughter as she fell asleep last Christmas Eve with her Santa hat on!
I used the pink from her Pyjamas and purple and red from the bed linen to dictate the colours I would 
use on the background of my page.
And of course using a line from the poem "'Twas The Night Before Christmas" 
as the title for this page.

These Christmas baubles were just the thing for this page.
The base portion of them was first painted with Gesso and them coloured with watercolour paints
just like the background of my page.
The upper portion of the baubles was painted again with Gesso, coated with glue and then sprinkled with white glitter.
I even strung some thread through them 
so they were 'hanging' from the bottom of the photograph.

I used the same method of decorating these swirl corners as I did for the baubles.
