all is calm

Last year's Christmas tree, at 3 in the morning after the last gift was finally wrapped and put in place. The house was quite and the tree lit, and it felt like Christmas.
I think I am going to use this page for my inspiration for a December Daily this year. Lots of white, tags, book pages, silver, houses, stars, gold, confetti, grey..

I punched lots of little stars from the blank white photo paper I cut off of the square photo on a 4x6 print. The Maya Road chipboard banner is painted with a very fine layer of Tim Holtz white crackle paint, so it just shows very very fine crackling. 

Studio Calico wood veneer houses! My fave! I definitely need to hunt down more of these. I put a very light wash of white acrylic paint of them, to lighten them up a bit. Plus, I thought they would feel more wintry this way. :) 

Studio Calico wood veneer stars covered in German glass glitter! LOVE.

That is beautiful. I love how the photo is framed with the two banner shapes and the half circle. The stars are the icing on the cake!
