Christmas art journal series | Week 2

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.

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.

    Oh dear Vicky, given the length of your naughty list, presents might be a bit sparse this year 😂😂😂

    Oh, Vicky! What a fantastic journal page and video. I must admit that I’ve missed seeing you create journal pages like this one. So many techniques and layers. I’m trying to incorporate some tissue paper into my projects, but I get stuck on how best to use it. (I must go back and rewatch some of your older videos!) Your Santa is just so adorable, including his mitten! And that background is stunning and gorgeous!!! The distressing techniques you did on the naughty list are ones I’ve learned from you and tried. Love the look too! I have the ornament colorize die set and although I really like the look, the small pieces can be challenging for me, but this Santa …!! I have long loved that Christmas tissue by Tim. It’s beautiful and so vintage! Great ideas and tips throughout your video. Absolutely enjoyed every second. The other day I met with my real estate broker to look at a home and it turns out she crafts too! We were discussing who we follow on youtube and we both follow and adore you!! Were you ears ringing!? Thank you very much for this fantastic video. May you stay safe and be well. PS – LOVIN’ this new series!! Thank you, thank you!

      Debbie thank you so much for the feedback and the support! It seems so unreal to read that fellow crafters discuss my projects so far away! It really makes my day! Thank you Debbie and I hope you will have a wonderful holiday season.
