My name is Rona Mallard and I am happy to be a guest designer for the single page sketch this month! I am now a stay at home grandma of two little boys who keep me very busy while momma and daddy work. I have been scrapbooking and cardmaking for over 20 years and really enjoy staying current with the trends by watching you tube videos and entering challenges. I love to see what others are doing and I love to keep my style changing to keep my books fresh and interesting to look through.
When I received the sketch the triangles jumped out at me and I knew I wanted to use this Paige Evans cut file tree as my main embellishment. I made the cut file into a shaker using some spiegel mom scraps sequins (snowy fields). I also used cut files from The Cut Shoppe to create my own stencil. I used metallic silver texture paste mixed with a little acrylic gel medium to make my background trees then sprinkled them with chunky glitter to get a festive look! I watered down the silver metallic texture paste and some white metallic texture paste for splatters along with lucky clover distress oxide to finish the triangle. I added 4 layers of cardstock for each of my cutfiles (that way I didn't have to use foam tape!). The title was cut from a Becky Higgins project life card.
