It's now officially the holiday season. All the malls and stores are decked out with season decorations, Santa's in the house, and Christmas music is playing everywhere. At my house we're sitting by a warm fire watching Rudolph and drinking hot chocolate with marshmellows. Which got me to thinking about winter and Christmas and holiday glitz. And warmth, fuzzy sweaters, scarves and mittens. And flocking - just like those Christmas tree displays.
Flocking is fun -- it's a great way to add texture and interest to your project. But you don't have to settle for buying flocked paper and embellishments, you can do it yourself with a bottle of flock and a bit of glue.
My challenge to you is this: use flocking on a layout. Just link up your projects in the comment section by Sunday night, December 14th to be eligible for a RAK.
And our friends at Studio Calico are sponsoring this challenge. They've donated one of their fabulous Key Lime kits for us, which includes a bottle of flock from Doodlebug:
And here's what our team did:
I used loose flocking with a glue pen on my layout. For the tree, I first stamped it in a light ink on my patterned paper, then traced over the image with a glue pen before adding the flocking. On the brown floral paper I just traced directly over the flowers on the paper.
Jen used the Key Lime kit from Studio Calico to create her tree. She used the flocking on the branches and the "star" at the top of the tree.
Let's see what you can do with flocking! Remember, post your projects on this thread by Sunday, December 14th.
