Vera Lane Studio - Not Driving Home For Christmas

Happy Saturday!

Today I'm sharing my Vera Lane Studio DT project featuring 3 sets which are available in the Vera Lane Studio Etsy shop.

I wanted to make a bright Christmas coloured project and inject a bit of humour. Goodness knows we need some after the year we've had. I decided to use the Chris Rea song Driving Home For Christmas or as in the case may be, Not Driving Home For Christmas depending on local travelling and visiting restrictions.

I've used the car from the Wheels set, the girl from New Day and the tree from Merry.

I know it's not the typical American red truck but I love this little red car so added the tree on top. The girl from New Day looks like she's shaking her finger and saying "no" so I thought she would be perfect.


I brayered red, white and green acrylic paint onto my gelli plate and pressed down onto it with some bubble wrap to add some texture. I then used Vanilla acrylic paint to lift the print. I then stamped AALL And Create #399 Framework Elements in Rustic Wilderness Distress Oxide and #352 Circled Numbers in Festive Berries. Next I stamped #434 Newsprint Numbers in Versafine Clair Nocturne black.  I then used the top of two pen lids and stamped circles in Snowflake white.

Next I adhered my images and added some doodling below them with my black fineliner. I added the word Journey from the AALL And Create washi tape in the top left corner and then printed out my sentiment, underlining the word NOT in red. I finished by adding this to my project.

I loved making this tongue in cheek scene and hope it brought a smile to your face.
