Some Christmas Inspiration with Elena

Hello 2Crafty Friends
Elena here blogging today and I have already started my Christmas preparations.
 I am sure some of you have too. So as you might know, I am more a layout girl
 but when it comes to Christmas time, I am busy creating cards and some
 altered projects as it is the best way to be ready with handmade gifts.
My first card is quite simple, I used traditional  - Holly Leaves .
They come in different sizes all in one pack, so it's so easy to
 combine them in one project.

I primed them with Gesso and then just colored with Gelatos. 
After that I applied Modeling paste on some parts, for more snowy look.

My second card is about winter too. I used monochromatic colors and
 added one of the Damask from a multi pack.
I primed it with heavy gesso and applied light blues with Blingz from Shimmerz.
My third Card
I used Pointed Snowflake  and Flower Spurt Chain
I primed these with heavy gesso too, and topped with Light Teal Dimensionz by Shimmerz.
The next card was created really fast, as I used just everything left on my table after previous projects.
I used Vintage Bird, primed with gesso, then colored with acrylic paint and sprinkled with microbeads.
One more Christmas creation I made with my daughters help.
I used Young Reindeer, primed with Gesso. Then my daughter colored partly with
 Gelato in Silver and added  Silver rhinestones for  his eyes.
Quite simple but she is very happy.
One more Card I made for a little one who has turned 12 months this 
week, a baby of my friend.
I used Birthday Cake No.1 , primed, misted with Spritz, and then
made some doodling with Dimensionz.
For more texture on the cake, instead of the cream, I used Texturez. 
And I topped it with Scrabble Tiles that I colored with Gelatos.
My last share for this month, is a layout I made for 7Dots Studio DT, 
as we were Guest designers for the Color Room Challenge.
I used Indian Feathers, that I tied with Angie's Vine. All of them were
 colored with Shimmerz, Blingz and Dimensionz.

I doodled on them with a black pen.

Hope you have enjoyed my creations.
Thank you for your visit today.
