Believe In The Magic - by Brenda Caldow

Hello and welcome to Off The Rails. Brenda here with you today to share my latest page using this months challenge. I loved the mood board and chose to use the Christmas papers I had that are in purples as it's my favorite colour. The photo is of my girlfriends daughter Meghan.

For my page I chose to tear the papers and to put creases and folds on the edges.
  The patterned papers I used are Kaisercraft - Christmas Jewel Collection

I also chose two silver doily's. I just love silver and purple together for Christmas themes. 

I also used Kaiercraft Wooden Snowflake Flourishes. I started by painting them with a Silver Paint Pen. Once that was dry I then placed Wink Of Stella Silver of the top just to give a bit more of a sparkle to them. 

Once the Wink Of Stell was dry I then used Prima Sparks Acrylic Paint - Iris Potion on all the round ball ends. This paint is so sparkly and really made them pop.

As most would know I do live to fussy cut and have fussy cut the reindeer and holly from the patterned papers.

I loved this photo of Meghan as a Christmas Angle but the surrounding didn't go with papers I had chose so I also fussy cut the photo of her. Once I had done this it was perfect with the papers.  To place the photo on the page I used dimension tabs to lift her up from the background.

All that was left to do was to put my page together and I was finished. 

I hope you have enjoyed seeing my take on this months challenge and remember there is still plenty of time to join in with us and do the Christmas shopping. I would love to see your take on it and so would the rest of the team.
Until I see you all again in 2019 from my family to yours Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. We hope you enjoy family and friends and if traveling please drive safe.
