After popular demand today I am back with a Christmas art journal. A lovely layout in a traditional color combo. I kept everything in shades of green and red and added touches of gold. Scroll down for a video tutorial, list of supplies and some sales on the products I used.

I used lots of fun mixed media techniques to create my Christmas art journal page today. Techniques that I love and use again and again. For the background I used my shimmer sprays Fresh Lime( SBC | SSS ) and Cut Grass( SBC | SSS ). They add the perfect shine to a festive project. For some visual texture I also used the ghosting technique and some spraying over the Tim Holtz – Holiday Stencil ( SBC | SSS ).
At the top of my page I did some stamping using the Darkroom Door PINE CONES stamp. I did a couple of layers of stamping for a fuller look. Notice that the stamping is not perfect. This is thick watercolor paper with lots of texture. But the more you stamp the better it looks when it comes to those pine needles.
My sentiment is from the same stencil that I used on the background. I masked off the words merry christmas and combined them on the lower right corner of my page. I used gold paste over it and look at all that shine!
The ornaments are cut outs using the Sizzix – Whimsy Decor ( SBC | SSS ) designed by Tim Holtz. It comes with 22 dies and includes 3 ornaments and lots of embellishments to decorate them. I used only a few in gold and I love the final outcome!
I also like to add different textures on my pages if possible as well as dimension. So I added some golden string to hang my ornaments and foam tape to stick them down.
