Clique Kits X Bad Girls Couture Holiday Blog Hop

Grab your favorite cuppa, join the CLIQUE and get ready to be a BAD GIRL maker as we take you on an AMAZING creative journey!

Here is what I made for today's fun blog hop.
A scrapbook layout with a simple mixed media background.
I wanted to create a wreath design incorporating some fussy cut leaves and a painted "wreath shape". I used a couple of Haute Mess Acrylic Paints (Broken Doll and Distortion) to create the circle shape for the wreath design. Dried brush Broken Doll and I diluted the Distortion acrylic paint with a bit of water. Then once it has dried, I used the Haute Mess Molding Paste and a stencil to add texture in the middle of the wreath.
From a couple of previous CK holiday kits, I chose papers that I can fussy cut patterns from. I fussy cut some leaves from a Crate Paper Merry Days patterned paper and arranged them following the painted wreath design. I also fussy cut some leaves from another Crate Paper Merry Days paper and mounted them with foam tape for a bit of dimension.
I placed the photo over a white doily and some messy thread. Started adding stickers and die cuts for embellishment. I also added this bow at the bottom of the wreath and placed the die cut "Merry Christmas" as the layout title.
I love adding details like this tiny clip bow from Bella Blvd and glittery gold snowflakes and fussy red pom-poms. Too cute!

Then lastly, I added some more texture with the Haute Mess Glass Bead Gel. I just used my fingers to spread it around the wreath design.
