Merry Christmas - Guest Designer at A Vintage Journey

Welcome everyone!
I'm thrilled to be a guest designer at A Vintage Journey today. It' s an honour to be invited.
I was really pleased when I learned that the theme to work towards was ‘Baby you’re a firework’. I decided to make Christmas decor project.

I cover the whole canvas adding some black glitter glue and glitter and using sand embossing paste dabbed the edges. It's time for texture paste! My favorite way to add texture. The paste was used with the Tim Holtz Chevron stencil.

Spray the paper rattan and watercolor paper using Color Wash and Dylusions ink spray. Die cut the leaves.

My finishing touch was to use double sided adhesive tape to make glittery sentiments and little firework.

I hope you like my little inspiration for this month theme. Thanks so much for stopping by & have a great day!Until Next Time.Happy crafting!

Hugs & Love,


Proud to enter my project into the following challenges:
