December 13th - Lucia

The idea I wanted to convey with the Lucia layout was light breaking out of darkness. That is, after all, a main theme of the Lucia celebration! So I found this very dark, almost black, pattern paper and cut it to a frame surrounding bright, warm yellow colours.
That's me as a deeply concentrated Lucia in the picture, taken in 1986 (uh-oh, I realise I'm letting my age slip here). ;) I scanned it from my parents' photo album, removed scratches and other imperfections, straightened, cropped, and reprinted it. The difference really was amazing!
The Prima Alphas have been put to good use again! After a bit of trial and error I realised that by tearing off the top shiny layer I could cover them in any colour with ease.
I've brought out the glitter again! Yellow, orange and a touch of red in the middle made for a nice flame, while Liquid Pearls simulated running candle wax.
Papers: Reminisce Northern Exposure Frosted Window, Core'dinations vintage
Embellishments: Scrap FX chipboard candles, Prima Times Alpha chipboard letters, Kort og Godt lace, QK Eliza Mini, unknown bling, Art Warehouse rub-ons
Other: Liquid Pearls White Opal, Twinklin' H2O's Lemondrop, Perfect Pearls: Pearl and Interference Red, MS Arched Lattice border punch
