Less is More 140: White on White Christmas


                                  

After much playing, thinking and experimenting this is the final piece I came up with for this challenge, White on White Christmas with Less is More.

I have used a sycamore seed which I have heat embossed with white. A technique I think or feel is unique to me. Embossing dried leaves and things. One I first did numerous years ago. I actually gave Tim Holtz and oak leaf I had heat embossed and he was amazed by it.

The reason I used this seed head is because its shape reminded me of a mistletoe leaf. A plant strongly associated with Christmas. It felt wrong to add synthetic pearls for the berries, so I hunted for some small white pebbles in the garden. They have gone more yellow in the photo. Again I wanted a very natural backing for the group. So I cut a piece of scrim plaster bandage and damped it down to set . I loved this combination together

Lastly I stamped Happy Christmas and heat embossed in white. I wish I had a stamp that said something like "I am dreaming of a White Christmas"
