Thank you for welcoming me (Anna-Maria Wolniak) to the October Afternoon blog for the first time! I feel honoured to have an opportunity to be the Guest Designer in November. I will introduce you to the newest October Afternoon Christmas line ‘Silent Night.’ I received a huge box full of ‘Silent Night’ goodies and sure the whole month of November, each Friday, I will prepare some tutorials and articles about various techniques which you can use in your Christmas projects. I hope it will give you some ideas and inspiration for your own layouts, cards, etc.
Here are two layouts with different composition, but they share a colour palette. All of these colors are coming from the ‘Silent Night’ collection. I am in love with these cyans, reds, and beiges with a touch of green. Both layouts were inspired by these colors. There were made on a simple, white cardstock base with big 10x15 cm photos (which is not very common for me – I prefer to use smaller ones, like 7x9 cm).
Baby, it's cold outside
You can see everything that I will try to teach you in my next post: how to work with Sprinklers, how to create glitter splashes, how to combine layers, etc. So you can see this as an introduction to our future ‘meetings’ on the October Afternoon blog. I wish you all an amazing first weekend of November!
