Pastel Christmas Layout for Get It Scrapped

Hi everyone,

Here is another catch up post for a layout created for the Get It Scrapped article about using pastel colours for Christmas layouts. The layout I created shows off a bunch of photographs of my children spreading ‘reindeer food’ on Christmas eve.  The first step in creating my layout was to apply texture paste to my paper and then sprinkle some rock candy distress glitter over the top.  When this had dried I applied some different pastel watercolour paints (some twinkling H2os and gelatos mixed on my craft sheet).  I also created the ‘presents’ using watercolour paper and the same colours.  I arranged my photographs in a bit of a grid and used the principles of approximate symmetry to arrange the embellishments and other elements to frame the photographs.  You can learn more about design principles like approximate symmetry with a membership at Masterful Design which includes the Scrapbook Coach video series (if you are interested you can find more details at Get It Scrapped).

If you have any question just let me know 🙂

Thanks for stopping by,




And I thought I would include a closer photo of one of the pages so you can see some of the details on the page.
