The Stocking****Maja Design****

Hello, I am here to share with you a LO I did, using the Vintage Frost Basics Collection from Maja Design. I just love this Collection,& you can combine it with any of the other Vintage Basics Collections. I took a photo of a stocking that I embroider,way before I got hooked on scrapbooking.
I combined the Vintage Frost Basics & the Vintage Autumn Basics collections. I did not have my Vintage Frost & wanted to get started on my stockings,so that is where I used the Autumn basics.....

From the Vintage Frost Basics Collection I used:1st of Dec,19th of Dec-BS,5th of Dec,7th of Dec & some of the BS's of the labels
From the Vintage Autumn Basics Collection I used #II, #II-BS, No X-BS

The Dusty Attic Chipboard used:
mini script ABC (DA0859)
Bird houses (DA0699)
Christmas Banners (DA0769)
fancy trim #2 (DA0446)
Birds on a branch #3 (DA1003)
teeny tiny abc set (DA0983)
mini hearts #2 DA0990)

wagon wheels (DA0697)
mini birds (DA0723)

Other products used,Audrey Flower Collection from Prima,picket fence crackle,Martha Stewart texture effects,brads,seed beads,burlap,lace,glitter,stencils (Crafters Workshop, Art is), (Prima,static).              Here are some closeups of detail............

I covered the chipboard stockings,with scraps of  paper from the Vintage Autumn Basics Collection,I glued on a small piece of lace, as I was working with the layers, in the stocking. I then hand stitched the stocking,strung some seed beads on to wire & attached them to the stocking....
There are 10 stockings,so I put on our family names & the dogs names....
On the string part of the stocking, I used gesso,then liquid accents & when that dried I applied stickles..
Shows a flower cluster using bird houses & the Audrey Collection from Prima...I used walnut stain on the bird houses,then rock candy crackle & when that dried I applied some Martha Stewart texture effects....
This shows some distressed,hand stitched layers. I also did some punch work & stencil work...
Layers of paper & chipboard,inspired by the stocking....
The center of the wagon wheel is a old brad, that I applied gesso,seed beads,pearls & rock candy crackle...
I love these birds on a branch,I covered them with the paper I was using, then inked the edges using a brown ink pad....
Thank you so much for taking the time to look.....Rachelle
