Hi! Today I am back with the second video for my Christmas art journal series. I will be sharing a new art journal every Thuesday… until Christmas. That’s 8 Christmas themed layouts! I will play with different mixed media techniques, showcase new products and use old ones from my stash too. If you want to check out WEEK 1 click HERE.
You can enjoy the video below or at my YouTube channel
Here are some close up photos on the project. Make sure to check out the video above for a step by step tutorial.
The inspiration for this page came from the new die by Sizzix designed by Tim Holtz – Santas Wish Colorize( SBC | SSS ). Putting all the layers together will end up into an adorable Santa that you can use in so may projects.
My Santa is holding a naughty list… and he is checking it twice
There are many different techniques used to create tha background and I had so much fun creating it. I played with collage paper, acrylic paint, gesso, stencil, paste, heat embossing …
And since Santa is checking his naughty list… well I had to go with a fun quote ….
For my quotes I like to combine bigger and smaller fonts. You can achieve that by writting everything with your pen or if you are like me you can combine alphabet stamps and dies or even print out your sentiments.
Here is a close-up look where you can see all the things going on at the background… yet the focal point really pops.
