Now I decided to use my Art Journal for this one - working on a double page.....I work in it from time to time & intend to do more in 2016.
I choose to use the other bauble colours as well...such a pretty inspiration.
Here is my 2 page arty journal.
I began with a thin layer of Decorart Old Gold paint...then Finnabair gold crackle paint & a stencil.
Then Heidi Swapp stencils & Colourshine sprays..in Mint, Pink & Aqua
Stamping using about 5 different stamps (I never remember where they are from) & Dew Drop inks
I choose this Old English quote
As every thread of gold is valuable, so is every moment of time.
I certainly enjoyed playing with these pages over the last few days.
This fortnight we're making cards that celebrate holiday foods &
drinks: Gingerbread and candy canes... Christmas cookies and cocoa...
Sugar plums and figgy pudding... maybe even Who-hash and Roast Beast for
you Dr. Seuss fans? Whatever your favorites, we can't wait to see them!
Meanwhile, here's what we made this week:
So here is my card...inspired by fruit
I have used some older Simple Stories Paper & embellishments, on a lovely cream card.
Then topped by another Simple Stories clear overlay.
Very happy with this Christmas card making....its so fun.
I love WC paper - the texture, the ability it has to do just what I want!
I used a stencil along with Heidi Swapp Colour Shine & Dylusions sprays as the background.
I love how things just 'lob' on my desk....I am the only scrapper here, but suddenly this card showed up with all these lovely circular words & signs, so with some terrible fussy cutting here it is in close-up.
I have used my new Chameleon pens, gold Zig writer to outline circles & embellies, along with some BG stickers & dear little enamel dots from an unknown source!
It was great to work on this page about my little granddaughter, I enjoyed the freedom of the page.
