Hi! Today I am back with the thirdvideo for my Christmas art journal series. I will be sharing a new art journal every Thuesday… until Christmas. That’s 8 Christmas themed layouts! I will play with different mixed media techniques, showcase new products and use old ones from my stash too.
You can enjoy the video below or at my YouTube channel
Today I am working on a loose 8×8 paper, so you can easily put it in your disc bound journal or frame it! You can also use the exact techniques on a canvas and you can easily adapt the size to your liking. I also demonstare a great way to turn a blank piece of paper into wood with that awesome peeled paint look. Just check out the step by step tutorial above!
For the leaves I used the Festive Stems ( SBC | SSS ) die and I colored everything with the new Tim Holtz color in spray stain! Isn’t Rustic Wilderness( SBC | SSS ) the perfect dark shade of green for my holly berry wreath?!
Can you tell that I created the background from scratch?! Check the step by step tutorial on the wooden planks in the video!
For the snow add white splatters or like I did sprinkle chunky white embossing powder and melt it for a vibrant effect.
Here is a close up look on those handmade paper wooden planks with the peeled paint effect on top. Love it!
