Dreaming of frosty Christmas on the sunny island

Good day sweet peeps!
glad that you are back to visit my blog again :)

Today I wanna share with you about  my mini layout ;)
It has the size 6" x 6" but hopefully it fits with my frame ..
A little story behind my creation  that I love to tell to you all trough that ;
Although I live in a country that not have Christmas celebration as big as other celebration but for me I am so exited to waiting the Christmas eve .., we have no snow nor a winter day .. we only have two seasons here, dry and rainy.. so on Christmas day we only get the rain, sometimes a heavy rain on the night but still have the sunshine on the noon..
I draw the Christmas here like this :

I use : Starlight Tilda from Merry little Christmas 2010 ; Tag and Log are from Magnolia too

More closer for the bottom right corner ; I put much flowers and any decoration from DooHickey ; Cheese cloth I've got from LLC store.

on the top left corner, I am playing with washi tape, glossing the text and sprayed weather wood distress marker with spritzer tool then putting some gesso.

did you mention a piece of newspaper on her back ? that paper glued on a piece of card stock with mod podge and painting with white gesso randomly.

I am so glad that my mini layout just fit on my mini frame .. so I have a Christmas decoration with a sunny feel :)

That's all my sharing today,  Thank you so much for your visiting here..
Love ya!

Here they are;

The fabulous background is Old Swedish Church - Christmas Story 2012 .

I painted her and everything with Distress ink, and put some glossy accent .

I love string and gems, and one of my fave was May art cream string , the background paint with gesso, sprayed with mist and put on there some crackle paint.

Paper I used from Bo Bunny and I picked roses according the colors too .

Now day, I love to use a pieces of news paper, glue it with mod podge and white gesso.

I just wait for my Snow paint .. but Mr. Postman so naughty... he doesn't come already, lucky I still have my Snow marker .. ho ho ho

"Santa Lucia is a celebration of life, friendship, happiness, and hope,"
oh I love to read this..
so, because I have a very adorable Santa Lucia Tilda, so I made this one for having celebrate it together ..
that I believe, a friendship, happiness and hope is a universal matter ;)
