I usually don't spend this much time working on a scrapbook layout. This one has taken about 2 weeks from first thinking of the sketch to getting the journalling done.
I cut out lots of snowflakes with the Cuttlebug and a die. Originally I was going to have acetate snowflakes too. (Ghost shapes) but the die cut didn't cut all the way through the acetate and it was taking ages to cut along the lines. Plus the shape is quite intricate- I will keep this idea for another layout.
I rubbed the baby blue chalk/ink over a snowflake shape to give this stencil - I even used this snowflake on the page! Look at the middle at the top. And I used the negative die cut to add a chalk/ink snowflake on the corner of the journalling block.
There is just one thing I am still not sure about right now. There is quite a lot of red in the photographs - should I add some (three) mini red brads to the center of the snowflakes, or add a grouping of little red brads? ( I have an idea where they could go - but I'm not sure if it would help the design).
