This layout featuring a very grumpy Nick last January all dressed to go out and play with the aftermath of the Blizzard of '16 was created for the CSI Case File #222 http://csichallenge.blogspot.com/2017/01/case-file-no-222-deadline-january-31.html
I used all of the colors: light grey, black, pale powder blue, white and cardinal red.
Something fuzzy (the jute)
Something about Winter
I started by applying Tumbled Glass distressed ink through a stencil on white cardstock. I tore a sheet of pattern paper (Good Tidings from Kaisercraft's Silver Bells collection) in two and placed the smaller piece on top of the larger and stamped a corner image on top.
The photo was matted with black cardstock, glued to a piece of packaging and wrapped in a length of fuzzy jute.
I covered the Maya Road chipboard snowflakes with gesso and then with glitter and allowed them to dry before gluing them to the page.
The journaling strips were printed on plain cardstock, lightly inked and taped next to the photo.
