Christmas Art Journal

newchallenge sssm

Hi, friends, welcome back. Christmas is here and at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge, we would like to take this opportunity to wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! This week, maybe you need to make some last minute decorations or cards, whatever you create we will be looking forward to seeing them!

I was inspired to create an art journal page with a Christmas tree for this week's challenge.

I love gold and shiny decorations in Christmas season. On this journal page, the background was colored with Peerless watercolor.

I stamped and heat embossed the Christmas tree with Tim Holtz Vintage Tree Stampers and Colorbox Clear Embossing Powder, and glued it on the page.

Some Tim Holtz embellishments were glued on the Christmas tree. I added the Holiday Rub ons on the page randomly.

To finish off this project, I added the sentiment with Simon Says Stamp Merry and Bright Wafer Dies.
