Merry Christmas | Jana Maiwald-McCarthy

Merry Christmas | Jana Maiwald-McCarthy

Hi everyone and Merry Christmas. Jana is back again and i want to share two new Layouts with the "Home for the Holidays" Collection.
The first page is 8,5"x11" and i really love how it turned out.

Merry Christmas

I also used three colors from the Liquid Watercolors, Sapphire, Emerald City & Aquamarine. Once i had the watercolors on the paper i stamped and heat embossed the word MERRY (with the "Adore" StampSet) on top of it. After everything was dry and ready to go, i started to look for the same colors for my embellishments. I wanted to create a tone on tone layout without a picture... i love this!

I layered some colored thread underneath some of the papers and created a giant stack of presents. I did a lot of fussy cutting on patterned papers, presents and trees. All in the three main colors, green, blue and light blue.

I placed some stickers around the presents and added the word "christmas" under the heat embossed word MERRY to complete my title. I love how the white is looking on the bright colors.


My second Layout is about me and a big wish for 2020. I used the "Adore" DieCut Set to create the words MAKE A WISH! I used three different patterned papers in blue and red.

Make a WISH

The picture is a selfie and i turned it into black and white just because of the colors. I also used the "Sparkle and Magic" Stamp Set to create three branches. I decided to stamp them in different grey shades from the InkCubes (Urban Raincoat).

I did some fussy cutting for christmas trees, stocking and a present. I layered everything, with some green thread, very close around my picture and the title... But before i did that i splattered some liquid watercolors on my paper. I used Licorice, Aquamarine and Emerald City.

My final touches were some red enamel dots, a date stamp and my journaling underneath my embellishment cluster. I totally love how this one turned out...

Thanks for stopping by today and all the best for 2020!
