Hi! Today I am back with the 6th video for my Christmas art journal series. I will be sharing a new art journal project every Thuesday all the way 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.
You can enjoy the video below or at my YouTube channel
Here are some close=up photos on the project that I made for today! It’s 8×8 and you can easily frame it or even make it on a canvas. The design is easily modified to work on a one page in your art journal book too! Or even on a double page, you can have the bird on the branch in one page and a lovely quote on the other.
I wanted to have a soft blue and grey background with silver touches. This way you can have red on top that really pops!
I have tree red cutouts, the bird, the ornament and the berries creating a visual triangle that is really pleasing to the eye.
The quote is a combination of die cut letters and a chip quote with a phrase in red that really compliments the whole design.
You can ad as much dimension as you like if you are not working inside a book, so I did add foam squares on the bird and the ornament.
The frame is made by sticking down snow flakes, a really fun product that really took this project into the next level!
Below you can find a list of all the products used today. Links to multiple online shops are available, just click the logo below each item. Affiliate links used where possible at no extra cost to you.
