Hi Everyone! Sorry haven't been around. I had a busy week. I made a tag for Linda's Christmas tag challenge over at The Funkie Junkie blog. The one thing Linda had on her tag was glitter and that's exactly what I used.
The "25" is from TCW's stencil called Twas the Night. I used red acrylic paint then added the glitter and snow crystals. The background is washi tape. It was a quick tag. I will have more because I challenged myself in using that stencil on more tags and envelopes. Stay tuned!
Thanksgiving we were in Chicago to visit our daughter. She cooked a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner, we saw Wicked (excellent show), went to the movies and just hung out. It was a wonderful long weekend.
On our down time I can't just sit so I always travel with art supplies. I even bought a new carry-on with wheels so I can put what I need in it. I usually carry:
Faber Castell Pitt Pens and Big Brush Pens
Tags, Cards, Paper Scraps
UHU Glue Stick
Unmounted Rubber Stamps
Except for the art journal, tags and paper scraps everything fits in a small plastic case. I use the attached cover as my color mixer for the watercolors or the markers. This year my paper scraps were Christmas themed and I brought with me Stampers Anonymous/Tim Holtz Christmas Blueprint stamps. I made these cards.
I thought I would show you some close ups. I really love the way these came out. They seem very modern and different.
Not all trees are green!!!
The scrap of paper I used for the background just happened to have the perfect quote and it fit the card.
My daughter loves Nutcrackers so this may be her Christmas Card. Maybe!!
Love this color combo.
I decided to use the ornaments for this tree.
I love to fussy cut. I can sit for hours in front of the TV and cut images out of paper. Its relaxing for me.
I have two more cards finished but I didn't get a chance to take a picture of them. I will put them in another post. I'm swamped at work this week so I may not post again until the weekend but you never know what I may be able to squeeze in.
