It's Barbarayaya time!

Yes, it's time for another guest! Today we have another Top 3 winner, it's Barbarayaya of yaya scrap and more from Italy with this fabulous project...

"When I received Chris's mail telling me that my project was chosen among September the top 3 I was beyond amazed and very happy! I proudly and enthusiastically accepted to be GD for this month! The theme "letters" made me immediately think about using a solitary letter and since I love Christmas time, I used the letter "C". To me, "C" is for Christmas!

Those who know me, know that I have a thing for Tim Holtz from his stamps to distress inks, so for my project I decided to use materials that suits me best! I started from the middle of this project, using one of the new Tim Holtz Christmas Stamps set! I stamped it using Versamark, then I sprinkled over some sticky powder and Antique Linen glitter distress. I wanted to try a different technique and I did it light on a dark base opposite to the dark on light base that you often see around. After that I took another element that I like to work with: TAGS.

I chose a Manila tag size 12 and ripped it in half and then put it together again using what I like to call "my personal touch" : a zip! I love zips and I often use it in my projects! What came next is me playing around using a Christmas color palette: cream, red and green (I used distress inks and archival for my stamping). To finish it off I used stars that I colored with alcohol inks, different stamps (always from Tim Holtz) and merriment red tissue tape.

In order to create the word "December" on the low part, I took the letters from other words I had in my stash. To give it a little touch and to hang it I applied two tiny clips with double ribbon: same fabric that I used on the tag and crinkle ribbon to close it all.

This project is a home decor that you can definitely use to spice up your next holidays!"

What a terrific tag Barbarayaya, we love the zip! THANK YOU for joining our team this month! You can find more projects over at Batbatayaya's blog so do please HOP HERE and share your comments.
