Day 286: Scrap Much Holly Jolly Layout

So just a quick disclaimer on the photography before I tell you about this layout I made for the new Scrap Much? Sketch. In the page protector this page looks fine. Out of the protector it warps and I could not get a straight picture of the page. I even ironed the page background...sometimes you gotta just go with it, I guess!  
In any case it was the watercolor on the background that brought me to this place. I washed some really watery red that I blended out of two reds across this pretty Simple Stories Pumpkin Spice wood grain paper. Then I splattered it with more of the custom red I had mixed and some dark grey watercolor to boot. I let it dry a bit, then ironed the paper. That did not take out the warping... probably because I used a lot of watercolor on a printed patterned paper. Again - in the protector it flattens out nicely and looks fine. I also stamped onto the layout, replacing the scalloped border with a stamped sentiment along the bottom, and adding snowflakes to the beige tag under the title.
Onto my wood grain I layered papers from the Moxie Seasons Greetings Line. I am in LOVE with this delicate snowflake design. I added some American Crafts wooden snow pieces, painted with Clear Wink of Stella and accented with clear rhinestones.  The shimmer in real life is just lovely.
This is the new Scrap Much? sketch - I hope you'll pop over to Scrap Much? and share your creation, too!
