Bringing home the tree.

A  page for Sheila's theme ...... Lets Celebrate.... over at

The background  was a sprinkle of green and brown  brusho powder  , that I wiped over with a wet wipe to blend the colours near the center. I knew I wanted to use the tree stencil  for woodland. 
I also added some raised stencils around the edges to give a bit of texture. 
The images are found relatives [TH].

It must be good to live in an area where you can go out, to choose and cut  your own Christmas tree
and quite magical for families to do this together to celebrate the season.

Thank you for calling in today. 
You are always  welcome here.


  1. Sweet old fashioned card, lovely.xx[aNNie]🎄

  2. Gorgeous journal page, love the colours. A lot of folk cut their own trees here. Have a nice day, hugs, Valerie

  3. The molding paste around the edge of the page is just beautiful. It frames it perfectly. I am loving these TH holiday folks and they look great on your pretty background. Happy Thursday. hugs-Erika

  4. Fabulous page! I would've a real tree again ! This reminds me of the trees my Dad would replant each year until they became too big to get into our little cottage, when he would start again with a smaller tree! Hugs, Chrisx

  5. Your page is wonderful - this composition and how you built your page is awesome!
    Not always the best when you hav woodland of your own. A girl-friend of mine told me her father, a farmer who owned a forrest, brought for themselves for Christmas always ugly and crookedly grown trees.She told me that she was always disappointed but her father told her that he wanted the nice looking trees to get bigger so he saved!Wise man!
    Thank you for such a BEAUTIFUL Christmas page - I love the vintage touch it has -
    HAPPY Thursday!
    Time flies again!

  9. Your background is so perfect for their tree cutting adventure. Love all the colors.

  10. A fabulous page, your coloured background looks just like a late winter afternoon, and I love the raised embossing. I think the found relative characters are charming.

  11. Gorgeous background and super use of those paper dolls! Yes, how lovely it would be to walk into the word and cut your own tree....

  12. Wow, what a great idea! I never thought of using a baby wipe on Brushos to blend the colour and the tree stencil looks amazing 😁. How wonderful it must be to choose and cut down your own Christmas tree and you have captured it beautifully on your page - it's so magical! Thanks for the inspiration and wishing you a Happy Friday and Weekend! J 😊

  13. This turned out beautiful. I especially liked the stencil and of course, the way you positioned the children and the man carrying the tree out of the forest. Great composition, too. Thanks for sharing this beautiful page with us for Art Journal Journey today. It is very memorable.

  14. What a very nice page dear Meggy. I love the old picture and your perfect background so nice colored.
    Dear Greetings

  15. Just having a blog catch-up today Yvonne and I have so enjoyed seeing your wonderful makes with all the festive fun. It is many years since I went to Hexham except to have to change from a train to a bus there a couple of years ago. It looks like a nice place for a Christmas market.

    Enjoy your weekend

    Love Chrissie xx

  16. Oh, I do love this - perfect positioning of the characters to capture the perspective - delightful page.
