The Spirit of Christmas

I've been fiddling with my 'bitz' - that would be Twiddleybitz  in case you were getting the wrong impression LOL!!  

This is where my Twiddley fiddling has taken me

'The Spirit of Christmas'

I have combined some wonderful Twiddleybitz elements with some gorgeous Prima embellishments. A  touch of  Prima Pixie Glen paper from the 6 x 6 Paper Stack along with some of The ScrapCake 'The Bright Side of Life'  and 'Spring Awakening' patterned papers designed by Karola Witczak..

Totally **heart** the Twiddleybitz Vintage Overlay.

  To give it a shabby appeal, it was given a treatment of texture paste. The paste was applied with a palette knife and I was not overly fussed with creating a smooth finish. Some areas were also stippled to add some texture.

The Vintage Overlay was attached 'The Bright Side of Life 'Dear Diary' paper.

A Twiddleybitz Round Doily Journal Plaque was layered under the photo with hand cut and die cut doily paper elements .

The star peeking out from under the bottom right hand corner of the photo has been removed from the Twiddleybitz Christmas Flourish & Stars.  The star was painted white and then embossed with clear sparkle embossing powder.  A light touch of Tattered Angels Patina Glimmer Mist was then applied over the top.

The foundation of the corner corsage was created with Twiddleybitz Holly Leaves.  A distressed crackle effect has been created with Tim Holtz Picket Fence Distress Paint.  Areas on the leaves and stems were highlighted with Tim Holtz Broken China Distress Stain.

Prima Splendor Leaves, Cradle and blooms were added along with diecut leave stems and punched pine  branches.

And how adorable is the resin Prima Deer??  Oh my goodness, he is as sweet as can be.
Another little cluster of Twiddleybitz Holly and Prima Splendor Leaves, Prima blooms and a sprinkling of resin flowers finish it off.
