How many products???????????


This week I finished my last Christmas home décor piece for this year. 

At the beginning of the year I was given as a present a Tim Holtz Printers Tray by the lovely Hels Sheridan.  My full intention was to create a Christmas decoration with it.  Each year I like to make something to put around my home that is not shop brought and massed produced.  This was the just the right size for what I wanted.  As it has to be my main feature this year as unfortunately all my other Christmas decorations are in a storage container somewhere in the North East.

I spent all of last weekend making it happen and I am really pleased with the result to be honest. 

I used the December Technique from 12 Tags Of 2013 again, but this time I coloured the CFA and not the FF as I only had white CFA.

I seriously cannot believe how many products went into the making of this piece of art. 

The Tray in it's full glory

Thank you for looking and for staying with me this year and I hope you all have a fab Christmas and a wonderful 2014.

Take Care Sue
