I used one of my photographs from Brisbane at Christmas for this layout.I used DecoArt Americana diluted with water to use as a wash.
I started with a white wash over printed scrapbook paper.
I then used a baby wipe to dab off excessive paint.
I built the colour up gradually.
Once dry I distressed the edges of the paper.
Using my finger I added the final colour of paint on the edges.
Once dry I wove the paper and glued it in place on a piece of Bazzill.
Using watercolour pencils and a water brush I added a rusty effect to the edges.
I used a mask from The Crafter's Workshop to add some tiny arrows.
I made a green heart using DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics, Crackle Glaze and Antiquing Cream. This is similar to the one in the Brisbane logo.
To add a bit more of a Christmas feel I used two Christmas stamps by PaperArtsy and a little bit of sparkle on the cats hat.
I edged the card using Distress Ink pads and a water brush. Around the edges of the weaving I added a title and date.
