Another Christmas Card Design

I made the background using my gelli plate, acrylic paint and stencils.  The word stencil came with the Dina Media Christmas bird stamps.  I stamped the birds on watercolor paper with black ink and clear embossed.  After cutting them out, I used watercolors and a water brush to color the images.  The "hello december" is from the Tim Holtz small talk occasions.  I added some washi tape with jewels for the bird to stand on.  I added glitter glue to the white portion and puff on the Santa hat.  I hope you're having fun making your own Christmas cards and thanks for coming by my blog today!

Christmas Card

Time to start working on Christmas cards!  First I made some gelli prints with red, green and gold inks.  I overstamped with a swirly stamp in black ink.  I painted the white card edges and the white doily with the same red paint.  The couple is from a Collage Stuff collage sheet.  I added the Tim Holtz holiday flashcard, mirror stars, and small talk occasion sticker.  Have you been working on your Christmas cards?  Thanks for coming by my blog to view my holiday art!

Child's Play art journal page

Last night, I was playing in my art journal.  I go where the page takes me.  I think it's important to take the time to just play in our art.  I used acrylic paint, modeling paste, stencils and a pico embellisher.  Thanks for coming by my blog!

Shine Art Journal Page

I made this journal page a couple of weeks ago.  This page has grown on me over time.  It is layers of paint, and modeling paste using tons of stencils.  It seems my art journal style is to just keep experimenting and playing - seeing what I end up with!  Thanks for coming by my blog!
