12 Days of Christmas swap page 11

Today is my page. When I finished making my pages I wrapped all of them up and picked one to keep for my self as I knew I would not bother wrapping it otherwise. The wrapping is just brown paper and string as I didn't know about the fancy wrapping until they had gone. I added a small tag with the date number on and a eye sticker for good luck.

I didn't think to take shots whilst I was making this piece so I will just have to show you the finished item and explain what I did.

I started with a basic white card and sprayed it green. Then a smaller piece of corrugated card I painted red then a slight spray with the same green. I then stamped the tree shape on to dictionary pages cut them out and dipped them into my melt pot with green embossing powder in. When dry I added the dots with glitter glue but they all haven't stayed on. The tag was coloured with an ink pad in red then the edges brushed with a copper paint. The piper was printed onto tracing paper ripped out and added to the tartan that was attached with eyelets to the tag. A small piece of ribbon and  the wording done on my Dymo machine and that was it. I hope you like my interpretation of 11 Pipers Piping.

Thank you for allowing me to be part of this swap, it is the first I have ever done but hopefully not the last as I enjoyed the whole experience very much.

Thanks for reading,

This was one gorgeous square, Cath. I really loved it. You are ALL about the layers! So many and all so wonderful. Those are the most unique eyelets I have ever seen, too. Loved them.
