Christmas Wreath for Scrapmatts {transformed using Lindy's Stamp Gang products!}

Goodness me the end of the month is relentless!
There are always so many deadlines to meet & I just go from one to the next!!

I've been meaning to get this post up for days but have been busy working on
the Scrap Around The World reveal, which is always a mammoth exercise for
me, as well as preparing my SATW layout & my Lindy's Stamp Gang Colour
Challenge - I am sooooo excited about that - I love how it turned out!  Ooooh!!

I started out with a plain brown twig wreath
 purchased from a local home decor store.

I painted it, sponged it, embossed it, splattered it -
in fact it was quite a process & I have the photos
to prove it!  Hoping to get a tutorial post up soon!!

I used Ponderosa Pines Olive & Frozen Jack Frost
Starburst Spray.  Magic Moon Pearls, Tannenbaum 
Green Gold & Starbright Gold Green Embossing Powder 
Creme Brulee Cream & Glory of the Seas Gold
Magicals {pigment powders}.

You can see all the product codes for the chipboard pieces 
(and links to the Scrapmatts online store) on their blog HERE.

As well as the Scrapmatts chipboard Christmas words
 I also used their chipboard bows (see above).  

I painted the bows using Peony Scarlet Red Magicals from 
Lindy's Stamp Gang then dipped them randomly in 
Lindy's Stamp Gang Ruby Red Glitter.

Our design team spec this month was 'Christmas Decorations' 
and WOW there are some seriously awesome creations up
on the Scrapmatts blog HERE at the moment (and in the gallery).

If you are looking for some Christmas inspiration I urge you
to take a look!  And I will be back soon with ANOTHER
Christmas project!!  Thanks for stopping by today & to all
my American friends - Happy Thanksgiving!!

All the LSG products have such yummie names, like Crème Brulée cream - makes me hungry! I seriously hope you had this gorgeous wreath in the prime spot of your house! it's amazing! Working diligently myself on making a dent in my stash but it's barely noticeable. xoxox
