Christmas Garland #5 by Shimelle Laine

All this month, the JBS design team are working on a collaborative project - a Christmas garland made with all sorts of Jenni Bowlin product!  I started my contribution with one piece from the large chipboard banner set, then layered two rub-ons over the top.  First the silver receipt, then the photo design in green (that colour is a members' exclusive, and I love the fresh, spring green mixed with Christmas tones).

At the top, double-sided tape was my friend.  I used it first to adhere a length of ribbon to the chipboard, then ran another length of tape to cover in sparkly green glitter.  You can't make Christmas decorations without glitter!  It's the law.

I stamped Jenni's new alphabet (in the store soon) with black Staz-on ink and replaced the dot on the j with the star stamp in the set.  I added just a tiny bit of colouring inside the letters with a pale green marker.  And then finished everything with two red butterfly stickers and the plain chipboard butterflies to give them some extra dimension.

Join us all month long for little bits of Christmas wonder with Jenni Bowlin Studio!

Love & glitter,
