December Art Recipe - christmas gift bags

I forgot about one Christmas project! :)

I love to make Christmas decorations and gifts, but packaging is just as important to me. Such handmade bags will give even an ordinary gift a special character. It doesn't take much to create something like that. You don't need special products to create pretty snow or frost effects. You actually just need White Gesso, some shiny paints, and a thick glitter.

I used Art Alchemy Sparks paints - I splattered them to get a lot of shiny dots. To get the frosty effect, I recommend using Pearl Glass Glitter. It looks like tiny pieces of ice and it's easily to adhere - simply use ordinary glue or gel medium (Soft or 3D Gel). Gesso is also excellent for making splatters. Just add a little water, mix well, and splash like paint. Good luck!

Prima products: Art Basics - Heavy Gesso - White 961374, Art Alchemy Sparks - Mermaid Sparkle 964085 and Magical Pond 964092, Art Ingredients Glass Glitter - Pearl 961633

Dream Big - mixed media canvas

the Christmas in my studio are over and today I have for you something in different style. I made a small project on a painting board, in which the main role is the background. There are a lot of things there - mists, inks, a little stamping, splashes, turquoise transfer foil.

You can find here paper tags and chipboards. I used a great chipboard background and the serrated circles, stick out here and there, are the remains of the chipboard bauble. I don't know about you, but I usually don't throw away these cardboard leftovers, because they can be great elements of the background or composition.

I used EgoCraft products:

Christmas lanterns

I love Christmas and I love to make Christmas decorations.
Every year I miss the time to show here what I'm doing in December, but now I have a strong resolve to show you more :)

Today I have some Christmas lanterns for you. Not all are in the pictures, because they were gifts for my friends and family, but I'm doing more. I give away most of the holiday projects and it's all the pleasure!

Try to create such lanterns yourself. Just an ordinary jar, a piece of string, twigs, pine cones, white paint or gesso, and you have a beautiful decoration for the festive table. I also covered the jars with frost effect paint to make them look frozen.

Christmas with Sizzix

Hello friends!

As you know, I'm not a fan of cards and do it very rarely. But the Christmas ones are a must!

Today I want to encourage you to show your Christmas makes on the Sizzix website. Reach for your favorite dies and get to work :)

I made a card with a lot of paper twigs and leaves, from one of my favorite Sizzix die - Holiday Greens (#658759) and amazing Retro Merry Christmas (#662420).
