December Christmas Projects by Marilyn

Hello everyone!
I'm preparing for one of my favourite holidays of the year...the Christmas Season!

"I Believe in Santa"

Today I'm sharing with you some Christmas projects that I made using the 
beautiful Christmas range from 2Crafty.
 My first page is about a memory when my kids were little, they loved to see
what Santa brought them.

I used the Handrawn stars randomly on my page and I added  
 "I believe in Santa" -title.
 I gave a heavy coat of gesso to the chippies and after they had 
dried I applied white Stickles to them. 

I added around my photo some "Christmas Assortments" that I firstly,
 coated in gesso. Next up I painted with red distress ink and third
 I applied white Stickles.

2Crafty Chipboard Used:


 Another memory of my son's first Christmas. I used the Mini Christmas Bauble
  that I gave a coat of gesso, painted them with red and gray acrylic paint
 and added red Stickles.

I just painted my Believe title with red acrylic paint and with my white 
oil pen I gave it some highlights to enhance it.

Finally, I painted and added some Christmas Assortments

"Christmas Cards"

I made two Christmas cards using the Card Word Circles- Christmas

 I used the Christmas Assortments and the ATC Tiny Hearts & Stars in this card.
 I gave a coat of gesso to all the chippies then I painted with acrylic paint 
the Christmas Assortment and with white Stickles these tiny stars.

I painted with red acrylic paint my circle word title and then I applied red
Stickles .  I gave the tiny hearts a coat of gesso and painted with a grey watercolor pencil.
I used Maja Design - A Gift for You collection in all my projects and flowers, doily die 

and mediums are from Prima Marketing.  Lace from Tresor de Luxe.
