I finally have my Christmas poster for 2011 hung on my apartment door! I combined quite a few images for this holiday scene. I began with Mo Manning's lovely "Tree Decorated" and added the baby from her "First Christmas" image and the wonderful little elves "Kim", "Pippa", "Mim" and "Finn" and the wreath from her "Door With Wreath" image to complete the scene.
Dimensionals were used to attach the tree, wreath and the baby to the background paper. I also printed a second Christmas tree image and cut out the candy canes and ornaments and used dimensionals to apply them over the ones in the tree. The elves were also attached to the tree with dimensionals. Many hours of cutting and I used LOTS of dimensionals on this poster - and LOTS of Stickles glitter! At the bottom of the poster I added a section of cardstock to give an illusion of a "rug" and a base for the baby to sit as well as to give it some depth.
It took a long time to make this poster but I was pleased with the result - and hearing voices through my door saying "Look at this!" as people stop to comment on it makes it all worthwhile. Please excuse the photos as they aren't the greatest but the lighting was very poor. If you click on the photo to enlarge it you can see the glitter better.
