The Merriest Christmas!

It's time for the last Anything Goes Challenge of the Year at
and being December - what else to make but
A Mixed Media Christmas Creation.

The start of my project was to add
gesso and some old crackle paste that
didn't crack much on to torn corrugated cardboard.
Moving on to the tag part I cut the white one
slightly smaller adding text, a bit of blue smooching
and distressing the edges.
Here are the colours from the Lindy's Magicals for my leaves
 with leftovers for the deer.
Placing Tim's Holiday Green dies, some dry wall tape
and snow to the bottom.
and some finishing touches - 
red cotton bow, red kindy glitz on the berries,
waxing around the edges and
on the branches.

One last look!

That's it for this years Mixed Media Makes.
Now head over and see what my Talented Teamies made
for your inspiration as we would love to 
see your creative creations over at our Anything Goes
using multiple mediums.
Let your imagination run riot
and get those fingers messy -
the inks and things washes off easy.
I have had so much fun creating as part of the Team
and look forward to doing it all over again in the New Year.
A Big Thank You to Andree and my Mixed Media Mates
for a wonderful creative year together.

#Note The Creative Artiste Girls are taking a break in January
but will be back in full swing for our February Challenge.

# Update - sending this over to the The Mixed Media Lovers
for their  Challenge #8
Have yourselves a Merry Christmas!
See you then!

Merry Christmas 'Deer'

 It's finally here - December that is and that means
New Challenges over at  STAMPlorations 

Check out our Stencil Challenge Here
where my Team Mates created projects for your pleasure.

I love using the reindeer head from 
as you can build up the texture in so many ways.
I started my card with the background for it
with scrunched tissued paper glued to card stock
then added stenciling with ARTploratons Shutters
with Tim's Frayed Burlap and die cut.
On to my reindeer - I inked him with the frayed burlap,
vintage gold wax, crackle glaze and clear rock candy.
Needing some colour I stenciled red card stock with
ARTplorations Christmas Tree 1
using Transparent Gloss Texture Paste
and while wet sprayed with Gold Perfect Pearls Mix.
and attached behind the deer.
Added a few coloured stars and popped to the
Christmas Tree background and on to the same red card stock.

These are the products used
