‘Tis the Season

When I’m prepping for a class or other big project, I do some samples of techniques or with new products to see how I like them. While trying to create a background for my Believe ornament class, I tested different paints and colors on cardboard until I figured out what I liked. So, now I have all this fancy painted cardboard that is perfect to use in other projects!

For this project, I used a piece of the painted cardboard as the base. I painted it with a few colors of Distress Paint and silver Bo Bunny Glitter Paste.

I had also tested out some dies on the new KaiserCraft Home for Christmas collection, so added one as a frame around the sentiment, from the same collection.

The greenery is from Tim Holtz’s Holiday Greens dies. I was also testing finishes on snowflakes, so I added a couple of those.

Some white painted “snow” and Stickles “berries” finish it off.

    This is beautiful, Erica! Really love the cardboard base here and the whole mixed media feel, and the layered greenery and snowflakes are fabulous. What a great idea to add Stickles berries to the greens, and textures snow, too. Love the glittery background. Awesome sentiment label, too!
