Favourite Time December - OUAS Dec Challenge

Hello Everyone

I am so pleased that today is a public holiday and hubby is at home, so we are all just chilling and it's a beautiful summers day.

I have a page to share with you today for the Dec OUAS challenge. Here is the sketch.
Journalling Theme: "My favorite month"

So here is my take on it.

The title of the page is Favourite Time December and is really my most favourite month! Behind the photo to the right you will see a little card peeking out and that is where my journalling is.  It's a "Treasure" card and says: I love the month of December as it is then summer, with beautiful, hot summery days! I always take some leave and spend time with Joe! We go on little excursions and this was out trip to the Bunny Park last week.  There is nothing better than relaxing days and time spent together! It's a festive month and everything we do is celebratory, even if just celebrating good weather!

I went with a grungy look to compliment the photo and used various bits and pieces to bring it together.

I coloured and embossed the cogs so that they look rusty and old! The metal accents were also coloured with inks so that they also have an old feel to them.

Materials used:
Kaisercraft papers and journalling card
Fancy Pants Designs corrugated board and stickers
Enmarc chipboard cogs and chicken wire
Prima stencil

Thanks so much for stopping by!
I hope you have a super Monday!
