Digicuts Decor with Jennifer

Happy Thanksgiving Scrapbook Circle friends! I hope everyone is having a wonderful day full of family, love, and laughter!

Today I am sharing a project created with the exclusive Scrapbook Circle digital cut files included with the November kit, Wonderland.

When I am not scrapbooking, I enjoy making mixed media canvases. This project began as such but turned into something completely different than what I had in mind (Isn’t that how it usually works?).

To begin, I covered a 12×12 blank canvas with white gesso. Doing this prevents other materials from soaking through the canvas with applying different mediums.

Once the gesso was dry, I used Mod Podge to adhere a piece of the Crate Paper Snow & Cocoa to the canvas and then applied a coat on top. This was followed with a piece of white tissue paper and another layer of Mod Podge.

My next step was to use the exclusive Scrapbook Circle November cut file to create trees. To do this I enlarged the cut file and then select two trees to cut, which I then offset to create slightly larger shapes for layering. With the trees cut, I then used Silhouette to cut a circle in the middle of a piece of 12×12 white card stock. This was placed on the canvas using more foam squares than I care to admit.

Now that I had the base for my project complete, I added a piece of pink patterned paper on top of the white and begin placing embellishments. After a while I decided that what I was making was beginning to look like a snow globe, so I went with it.

I used the Crate Paper puff balls to create snow and to add more dimension to the canvas.

To complete the canvas, I created a banner with the second exclusive cut file included with the November kit.

While this is not my usual type of project, I love how it turned out and plan to use it for years to come.
