Best Tradition

Hi there. I know it's the wrong time of year, but I was searching through my embellishments box when I stumbled across a Prima wooden Chinese doll that I forgot about. Of course, I then had to find my Chinese New Year photos to do the layout. Non Chinese papers, but I think all the reds pull the layout together to give it that festive vibe.

 I love all the reds in this layout and the grey stripes that break up the redness so it's not too over powering. Chinese New Year is all about flowers, so I got out all my red flowers for this page. I love the festiveness of the photos, especially the bottom one with the lion.
 I love the clusters of different flowers and textures. I also had some vellum phrase stickers and used them as the title.
I bought the Prima doll primarily for a CNY layout and used Zig Clean Color markers to colour in the doll and other wooden accents. I stenciled in red molding paste on the background before placing my photos. I kept the resin butterflies neutral so it wouldn't be too distracting.

Products Used

And now it's off to Macau for the weekend. Bon Jovi is playing and I can't wait to see them. It's going to be a trip down nostalgia lane.

Thanks for dropping by and happy weekend,
