Be Merry | Rita Marker
Hello crafty friends! Rita here to share a new layout with you. I hope you had wonderful Christmas Days. I did! On the first Christmas Day I visited the Christmas Market in Baden-Baden with my family and it was so nice. We had some yummi Crèpes and mule wine and enjoyed the great atmosphere although it was super cold. Back at home I wanted to make a layout about it and found two Cut Files, that I wanted to combine. The „Eat, Drink & Be Merry“ and the „Ornaments“ Cut File.
This time I wanted my layout as white and minimalistic as possible. First I made a background, using two acrylic colors. „Pretty Pink“ by Kaisercolour and „Titanium“, a metallic acrylic paint by Martha Stewart Crafts. On top I used some color mists and enamel dots.
If you look closely you'll notice that I cut some parts of the „Eat, drink & be merry“ Cut File off (the arrow and the ornaments, to be more precise!). I liked it better that way. Then I arranged the (bigger) ornaments and handstitched their „threads“, so it would look like they're hanging from above. After that I was kind of stuck. I had my three black&white photos I took at the Christmas Market and didn't know where to put them. My first idea which was to put all three photos in a row didn't work out for me anymore. After trying some variations, I came up with what you see now. Three photos vertically arranged. My last step was to use some roller stamps.
I love the simplicity of the layout. Aswell as the shimmering effect of the acrylic paint and the Color Shine which - together with the Cut Files - create that special "festive" mood I was aiming for. Maybe you feel inspired and want to try it out? I would love to see how you use these two Cut Files. Don't forget to share your work and tag @cliquekits (and #cliquekits), so we can all see what you create!
Now I can only wish you a happy happy new year! And see you soon!
