I have been busy, but loving every minute of it. I have been rearranging my craft room because I added a double sided slatewall display. I taught my first class at Crafting at The Nest last Saturday and loved it. It was great. I plan to do that more often now since I had so much fun. I have been making Christmas gifts and having fun with texture paste.
So first I want to share with you my very messy craft room, but I am still cleaning it out and organizing it. I will do more with it after the holidays.
Next up…MIXED MEDIA CRAFTS. Now I internet hopped from blog to blog and Pinterest to get inspired. First up is from Tim Holtz blog, Winter Wonderland by Emma Williams. Click HERE to see her original project, below is my version with my alternations to it.
I took a Tabletop Sign wood piece from Joann’s or Michaels. Painted it white. I took wood snowflakes and painted them white and spritz them with Peacock Spray Stain. Then I added paste to the background with glitter and put glue on the snowflakes and stuck them in the wet paste.
I cut out Tim Holtz reindeer out of 3 pieces of chipboard and glued them together. I used Walnut Stain Paint, Antique Bronze Stain (because I didn’t have the paint) and Gold paint. Emma did not use gold, but I like the look with gold.
I colored my sleigh with Barn Door paint and Gold. You need 2.
The middle pieces are 1 x 2 1/4 and 1″ x 1″ painted gold, then glued with glossy accents.
The deer gets antique linen glitter on the antlers. The wreath is sprayed with Tarnished Brass Spray Stain and then dipped in glossy accents with glitter added. I cut the wreath to put around the reindeer’s neck. Then add a gem for the eye.
I am making a few more things and will post before Christmas to show you the rest of the stuff I’m working on.
