Shadow Box by Denise van Deventer

Hello Everyone

It's my turn today to share my project for the December Challenge.

Here's a reminder of the mood board. It's a real goodie! Thanks Mandy! ;-)


I created a shadow box for this challenge with the title Jack Frost.


I used the gorgeous Altitude Collection from BoBunny, along with the amazing digi images from Gecko Galz.


Here's a closer look at the digi image.  It was fussy cut and then coloured with pencils.


I also used some chipboard pieces and gesso, along with some purple flower soft.


There's still time to play along....

Winter Beauty by Cathi O'Neill


This month at Berry71bleu we have a Winter Chill Mood Board Challenge! Here is a look a the beautiful moodboard that Mandy created for us:


This challenge is about celebrating the breathtaking array of fresh fallen show and ice that is abundant this time of year. Whether you are a snow bunny or prefer to sit inside by a fire, we want to see how you cope with the winter chill!


This month we were sponsored by GeckoGalz and I chose a beautiful vintage image from the Snow Babies Digital Collage page and some of their gorgeous Winter Wonderland digi papers!  I distressed the edges of the vintage image and added some sewing in pink thread to accent the image.  I took several of the digipapers and tore the edges and used them as a base layer to my photo.


I added lots of stamping, splashes, molding paste and masking and fun accents like microbeads and sequins to my page. I rarely use a white background, but thought it would be fitting to showcase the digi papers and reflect the winter chill!! I added some gorgeous flowers and some fun arrows to my design and finished off the layout with a bit more sewing around the edges. I hope you enjoy my layout and I thank you for stopping by to see it!

Currently Merry by Dana Tatar


Hi! Dana here today sharing my take on Mandy's Winter Chill Mood Board. I pulled the snowflakes, frosty branches and the colors red and grey from the board and created this page.


I cut the child from the Gecko Galz Snow Babies Digital Collage Sheets. The Merry Bingo card is part of the Gecko Galz Alter It Digital Collage Sheets. The gorgeous layered flower is from my Zeus and Zoe Kit.


I cut the title letters from the Gecko Galz Alter It Digital Collage Sheets. I added some vintage buttons from my Zeus and Zoe Kit.


I picked up this gorgeous butterfly from Kay's Etsy Shop Karla's Kreative Korner. Kay has a fabulous selection of Christmas Embellishments available!

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you can find the time to join us this month! We have some amazing prize packages to give away!
