Christmas Is Coming:

Christmas Is Coming by Jennifer Grace

This photo is from a shoot I did of my kids in 2012, to send out in our Christmas cards. It was very hard to get cheeky boy to stay still, but they were having lots of fun!

I wanted to use lots of colour to echo the joy in the photo. I also punched some small scalloped circles of Christmas papers and stitched them into a line, like the bunting in the backdrop of the photo. I stuck them onto the page with 3D foam pop-dots so they stood out from the patterned paper:

I used lots of different bits and pieces to represent the season, and I especially like this ‘Hello Christmas’ sticker which is from the Webster’s Pages It’s Christmas collection:
