Its been a little crazy around here and have started a couple of days ago and just finished. I do keep getting interrupted by life etc. and waiting for paint to day!

Lots of technique in these tags.
Started with one side of a Christmas tree shaped card, out of the stash.
Then sprayed it with Glitter and shine.
Decided it needed a trunk and pot.
The trunk was coloured with Distress Markers.
Next a big debate on decoration for the tree.
Georgie taught Mum and me how to put in eyelets for the baubles.
Just far too many laughs were had.
Mum had some very fine glitter ribbon and Georgie donated the garland that looked like the Christmas lights.
The star on the top is one of Mums stash of beaded bits she makes from time to time.
Oh it is great to have two stashes to raid.
Bear and Snow Scene
Started with hand drawn bear.
Next add a Distressed ink tag.
Then mixed some white acrylic paint with impasto gel and iridescent medium to give the snow texture.
Left to dry over night.
Once dry I gave detail to the snowman.
Raised the bear up on foam pads.
Then made a hat with ribbon.
A little Glossy accent for the eyes, snow flakes and snowman's nose.
Oh and every bear needs a tail.
Hope you like.
Thank you for visiting and have a great crafty New Year
