Christmas cheer x 2 layouts – Adri Du Preez

Hello everyone!I would like to wish everyone a very Happy New Year, full of love, light, and blessings!  I hope your Christmas day was everything you expected and more, I know mine was.  I was honored to spend the day with my children and grandchildren {and my husband}.
I am sharing two Christmas layouts.  The first one is of my grandson Janco, and the second one is my granddaughter Mila.  These are photos I took last Christmas.
I used beautiful Dusty Attic chippies and the paper is from the 49 and Market Peace and Joy collection.
Here is my first layout.

All the chippies on both layouts were first covered with white gesso.  In both layouts, the stars and titles were painted with Americana Acrylic paint in Tuscan Red and Bahama Blue.  Once dry I covered them with glossy accents and sprinkled them with Ranger Stickles Fine Glitter in Christmas Red and Star Dust.

I painted the Christmas tree with Americana Acrylic paint in Hauser Light Green and used the back of a thin paintbrush and white acrylic paint for the dots. The bracket was painted with Americana Acrylic Paint in Bahama Blue and dry brushed the edges with white acrylic paint.

What a cute gnome and so much fun to paint!  And they can be used for any celebration, such as Christmas, Valentine’s or any other time of the year.  I used Americana Acrylic paint diluted with water in Hauser Light Green, Tuscan Red, Bahama Blue, and Lamp Black for the shoes and buttons.  The edges of the white beard were dry brushed with Slate Grey.  

Here I used two card sentiments.

This is my second layout. All the chippies were treated in a similar way as the first layout.

The Christmas tree was painted with Americana Acrylic paint in Hauser Light Green. The tree was decorated with stars.

Wordpl@y, my favorite addition.
