Wooden Advent

Lorna here with a Christmas home decor piece.
Firstly i painted my wooden drawer set with white paint. I then used the Mintay Papers Home For Christmas papers to cover the drawer fronts. I cut the shape then distressed the edges of the papers with my scissors.
I did some fussy cutting from the paper set and used 3d foam pads and gel paste as my glue. I found lots of old alphabets and used the left over numbers for my drawer numbers, painted red, white and gold.
When i had finished my drawers i then wrapped the whole thing with some wide ribbon and made a lovely big bow for the top, then added Prima Marketing flowers to make a lovely floral and ribbon arrangement on the top.

Christmas Star

Lorna here today using:
. creative embellishments holly wreath
. cheesecloth
firstly i gesso’d the edges of my star, i cut out my backing paper making it slightly smaller than the star , i distressed the edges with scissors, then using a journaling pen and the rustic paint (ruby) also using the ruby i stenciled on the stars onto my backing paper.
i painted my wreath with the rustic paint , placed some cheesecloth in a circle on the star then mounted the wreath using 3d foam pads and gel paste as my glue.
i then did a lot of fussy cutting from the home for Christmas element sheet that comes withing the paper pack, this was all mounted to create height using 3d foam pads and gel paste, all overlapping, i then added my title which is from the Tim Holtz idiology chipboard Christmas quote chips.
i added some ribbon to add a bit more texture and as a hanger.
lastly i mixed some white paint with a little water and splattered.

Christmas Tag

Lorna here with my first christmas mixed media project for this year
firstly i gessoed my MDF tag with white gesso and when dry, I used the tree stencil and clear 3D gel with glitter through the stencil to create my back ground. I quickly gave that a dry and then played with the oxide ink sprays by spraying water and moving the ink around to add the colour to my back ground and again I dried it .
From the Mintay Papers pad, Home for Christmas I did some fussy cutting from the element sheet. I used 3d foam pads and  the 3D gel medium to add my cut pieces with some height .
I added my chipboard title from Tim Holtz again using the 3d foam pads and 3D gel medium to fix in place.
lastly i covered my titles and using the white gesso mixed with water, I splattered a little.
I finished the tag with a pretty ribbon.
Here are some close ups.
