I created this lay out in about 45 minutes this morning. I think it's very typical of my clean and simple style. I made it for this month's ARTastic challenge. At first I thought I wasn't going to be able to put in an entry this month. The painting and the criteria seemed pretty tricky for a Perth Christmas, which is in summer and where it never ever snows. I've never spent a Christmas overseas where it has been winter either.
Then, I saw this background paper at Anna's Craft Cupboard from Websters Pages and thought it was the perfect thing to build a page around around.
Here is the painting, so you know what I'm talking about.
It's A Blessing of Christmas by Thomas Kinkade. Very pretty isn't it? The criteria was to have a Christmas tree, a snowman and Christmas in your title. I have all three. My snowman is some pp by Donna Salazar which I have cut him out from. He looks so much like the snowman in the painting.
