Background inspired by Anneke de Clerck

Anneke created a lovely Christmas wooden panel which you can see here.

I decided to create a journal page using the similar techniques and colours for the background as Anneke used so I wont go into step by step instructions.  But here are the steps in pictures instead......





I chose this particular project as inspiration as it takes me out of my comfort zone colour wise - overall I'm quite pleased with the end result.



Instead of a Christmas tree for the main image I stamped some JOFY flowers onto to scraps of patterned paper and fussy cut then out.  I stamped the stems directly onto the page in olive ink and glued on my flowers with a few little leaves.

thank you for looking xx
