Design Team: Christmas Wreath

Julia has created this fab Christmas Wreath using a chipboard circle as the base.  She covered it with the gorgeous Prima 'North Country' collection patterned papers called 'In the House' and 'Snow Fall'.

Julia has used the 'In the House' papers for the leaves (cutting each one by hand with deckle scissors), spritzed with water and concertinaed to get the wrinkled effect.  The flowers were cut from the 'Snow Fall' papers and pearls, beads, glitter and ribbons were added.

Julia has made a beautiful job of this wreath and it has been a real labour of love cutting each leaf by hand!  If you go over to Julia's blog at www.straydreamsblog.blogspot.com you will find more details on this make.

If you leave a comment on this post today, I will enter your name into the draw if you qualify.  Thank you for stopping by.  Pop by tomorrow to see what Jules has made for her first project this month.

    I love the colours too the ice blue makes a nice change from the more traditional red.
