Christmas LovePosted: December 8, 2012
It’s pretty appropriate that I’m posting this layout today, because just after noon today, I will begin reading “The Night Before Christmas” to groups of children celebrating hometown Christmas festivities! I created this layout for Pink Persimmon Stamps, and it is one of only TWO Christmas themed layouts I’ve ever done. 🙂
I took this photo last Christmas time, of my sweet girl peeking through the tree. I love the bokeh created by all the lights, and the vibrancy of color. I do wish I would have fixed my white balance, tho…….so I wouldn’t have that gold cast…but oh well. It does show me how I have improved my photography from last year, eh? 😉
Honestly, I am not a big fan of the true green and red christmas color combination, and sometimes I get all freaked out when I’m decorating for christmas, because I”m so set on neutrals, and muted colors..that I don’t know what to do with brighter stuff. Since lots of my decorations are gifts or hand-me-downs, it limits me a bit (I can’t go buy a whole set of Christmas decor), but this year I learned to work around it, and I’m happy with how my home looks. SO, I decided to apply this to my layout as well.
I used a light, frosty green, and a light frosty blue, to give a little different look to the traditional color scheme. I love blue for Christmas…I would have an all shades of blue tree, if I could.
Thanks SOOOOOOOOOO much for joining me today,and hopefully I infused you just a bit with Christmas spirit!! To see some beeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeautiful projects from the Pink Persimmon team, in a wonderful *free* e-book (Including one of mine!), click here. The ideas for handmade gifts are awesome.
