Today I'm sharing my first Christmas project for this year
for Mixed Media Place Creative Gym!
This month challenge is host by our amazing and talented Tusia!
Create a Xmas card, tag or ATC (only small forms are allowed).
I wanted to make some Christmas ATCs for 6 special scrappy friends of mine and this challenge was the great opportunity to make the decision and get started working!
I had these craft chipboards in my stash for a long time waiting for the right moment to transform into art pieces. They are only 2,5x3,5" and that was a challenge for me to work with so small areas.
I used papers, tags and stickers from the 7 Dots Studio Yuletide collection, a Christmas collection perfect for seasonal projects.
I placed all six of them on my craft desk and started working. First I used gold and red embossing powder with stamps to create a beautiful base to work on it.
Then I glued all the embellishments and worked with H2Os watercolors and a paintbrush on several spots. I also painted the chipboard pieces and the flowers with them.
Last thing to do was to make a shiny glue with 3D Gloss Gel and gold glitter. 3D Gloss Gel dries clear, so I wanted a little bit of sparkle to be shown on the finished project, that's why I added the gold glitter. I used it to glue some Art Ingredients like gold Glass Glitter and ruby Glass Beads, pretty Christmas colors, don't you think? :)
