Hello everyone!!! Today is again time to remind you of the NOVEMBER Mixed Media Challenge at the STAMPlorations blog. The whole design team has been creating some inspirational projects for you, so do check them all up over HERE :).
Here is what I made for November – as you can see, I am slowly but surely starting to get into Christmas project creation mood ;-). Here is my first Xmas tag:
I´ve first misted the background with light blue Chalkboard Glimmer Mist (Tattered Angels). Next I applied blue pearlescent creative medium (Imagine Crafts) thru the Leaf Prints 2 stencil (by STAMPlorations) over the misted layer. THEN I added turquoise blue Glimmer Mist over the whole surface. After that I used the CUTplorations “Warm Winter Wishes” die cut die and cut the sentiment from white paper (I used those for another project that I´ll share with you later) and only used the negative piece. I matted this piece with red patterned paper and then started layering old book paper, eco dyed ribbon, cork stars, golden yarn and stickers over each other. I used the Christmas Reindeer stencil (also by STAMPlorations) – well, actually the mask piece of the stencil – as a drawing guide and then fussy cut the reindeer and misted it with grey Glimmer Mist and adhere it on it´s place. I had a lot of fun creating this piece 🙂
This tag will make a nice addition to a Xmas present, I think. So now is your turn! You don´t have to create anything Christmas themed, though!! Please read the rules before you link up – no worries, they are easy to follow!! Hope you find the time to join in with us!!!
Have fun creating!!
