A photo tutorial by: Angelica Franssen

Using the January Main Kit Collection "Mystical Winter"


 If you remember in my June Anatomy, I showed you how to gut your papers. I did the same thing here. Take your pattern paper and cut out an 11 X 11 square. Distress edges. Set aside the center.

 Take another pattern, this time cutting 1.5 inches from each end. Distress edges. Save the strips. Don't glue down yet.

Using the reversed side of the left over strips, punch out a border.

Randomly cut into 3 pieces. Ink if desired.

Choose 3 areas where you would like the strips to peek out. Glue into place.

From the cut out sheet, cut out and distress this frame.

From the reverse side of the cut out sheet, cut out and distress these images for embellishments and title. 

 Now take the 11 X 11 square from your first pattern paper and make a mat for your photo.

 From the same paper cut a 4 inch strip and punch a border. Layer all your items.

 Place all your layered items and your page. Then, tuck all the snowflakes here and there.

Begin to add your embellishments. Here I used the Prima crystals. 

 Now I added the flowers and charms.

 Add your butterflies. For my butterflies I covered them in Glossy Accents then sprinkled on Diamond Dust.

Your page is completed!!
