Live and Love Crafts - Shabby Christmas

This week I am playing with papers from Maja Design's "It's Christmas Time" collection for LLC's "Shabby Christmas" inspiration.  I love adding lace, pearls and Gesso for any shabbiness and that's just my basics to start with.

One of my favorite embellishments to play with are these Magnolia doohickey hearts, tied up with some shabby seam binding and popping the vintage pearl brads in the center.  This time I even added a few pearl strands. 

Those bark stars are always a favorite of mine!!  I have a chipboard tree from Southern Ridge Trading Co. that I covered with some Martha Stewart texture but it's the same as the SnowTex sold in the LLC store. 

YAY I got to add my favorite Wild Orchid Crafts bouquet but I also threw in one of those sweet Magnolia cherubs and a new white apple.  I just love them!!  I think it's because it's just such a non-traditional color that draws me to it.  And of course everything is covered in Gesso!! 

This week LLC is sponsoring
