The digital sponsor is Peggy Loves Vintage , who has a wonderful Etsy shop full of beautiful vintage images! Peggy donated several cute digi vintage images to complement your layouts!
Here's the July 7th sketch. Loved the design with the photos along the vertical stripes of patterned paper, with a cluster of embellies at the bottom. This was perfect for Peggy's vintage images!
And here's my layout.
It's the little village of Rothenburg in Germany, a quaint, walled, medieval village that was one of my favorite places that we visited during our trip in 2007. It had a great (huge!) Christmas store with a Christmas museum. Being a true Christmas nut, that made me very happy! I just need to go back and visit during Christmas Market time... now that would be the perfect Christmas vacation!
I used two of Peggy's images, which I shrunk (they have a great resolution by the way, and keep their wonderful details even when they're resized!). I wanted a textured look, so I printed them on a old piece of adhesive canvas I had. I punched the little birdie image with a circle punch and glued it to a chipboard circle. I cut out the silhouette of the Santa. I inked them both with distress ink and used Rock Candy Distress Stickles to add a bit of glimmer. The other image is an old Christmas sticker I had. I inked it and added Crackle Accent to give it an aged look.I'm really happy about how they turned out! It adds a nice touch to the "Old World" Christmas I wanted to convey!
I also stamped my title on the adhesive canvas and mounted the letters on a transparency, then pop dotted the whole thing for dimension.
I used a lot of old supplies on this layout, which makes me happy! Other that the adhesive canvas and Christmas sticker, I used some old Daisy D's and ProvoCraft papers, dating back to 2005/06! I also added some new supplies, like K&Co transparencies and fabric brad, Webster's Pages alpha stickers, a Tim Holtz trinket pin, as well as Heidi Swapp's Tattered Angels Rockin' Renaissance Custom Cut Outs for my journaling tag.
So there you go! Go check out the rest of the reveal by the other DT members! Dont' forget, you have until August 5th at 11:59 p.m to link your layout at Sassy Lil' Sketches to have a chance to win one of the two prizes this month!
