New Years Day has been a special day for our family for many years as we spend it with some friends at a local pub, eating, drinking and celebrating the start of the New Year. It has become a tradition that we look forward to and have upheld for about twelve years. It's always held in the same pub and as there are eleven of us in total we have to book our table well in advance!
I wanted to make my layout quite sparkly (more than normal!!) so I added texture paste through a tiny star template and then sprinkled with bronze glitter then spritz shimmer mist over the area around the stars.
I made my title using two of each letter and putting the darker colour behind the lighter ones to create a 'shadow'.
For my embellishments I simply used the pattern in the backing paper and punched several of the circles in different sizes then adhered them across my page. 'Simples'.
I am enjoying ripped and layered edges at the moment as it creates a softer effect than just straight cuts.
I hope you enjoyed seeing my favourite holiday and if you would like to be entered into a draw to win some 'bling' you just need to become a follower of the Sketch-N-Scrap blog (if you are not already!) and also of my blog before midnight CST on the 8th November. Make sure you leave a comment to say you have become a follower (or are already a follower - well done you!) of these two blogs and I will add your name into the draw. The winner will announced here on 12th November.
Here is the bling that I am offering to one commenter and although you can't tell by the photo the swirl is actually 8"x6", so a lovely big embellishment to add to a special layout! (Remember to comment before the end of November 8th.)
