Hi! Today I am back with the 7th video for my Christmas art journal series. I have been sharing a new art journal project every Thuesday for the last 7 weeks… all the way until Christmas. Can you believe I still have to share just one?! Today’s project is a cute little 6×6 page, that I made using minimal supplies. No stamping or die cutting on this one. You can easily recreate it using what you have at home and as I go along in the tutorial I also share alternatives to the products that I used for similar look.
You can enjoy the video below or at my YouTube channel
This is a 6×6 page ,that I like to create and frame during the holday season to decorate my house. Then I can easily bind it using the disc system or put the loose pages together in a folder for next year decoration. You can easily adapt this design for a double page layour inside a book, just make more trees to create a whimsical Christmas tree forest… and make sure that all your trees don’t look alike, make them taller, thinner, play with color… the sky is the limit!
Check the video to see how I drew my template for the tree, then cut out all the pieces from scrap patterned paper I had for ages and how I put the tree together.
I also share my favorite shading technique as well as demonstrate other alternatives to achieve the same look.
For the background I used one of my favorite collage techniques, super quick and simple and guaranteed to help you get rid of that white empty page in no time!
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.
