December Projects + VIDEO by Valerie Ouellet

"Artist Notebook"

Hi, everyone! I decided to create a cover for my artist notebook. I used
 this book to relax while drawing with my watercolor pencil and doodling. 
First, I made a mix media background with gelatos and some pencils. 
I have a video to share with you. 


 After, I cut the paper and I glued it on my notebook cover with soft matte gel,
  I used a paper punch to make the holes.

 To add texture, I used "Bubbles Clumps" and "ATC Words" on the top.
I just used embossing powder on my chipboard.

 "Christmas Presents"

For my second project, I decided to create my Christmas gift wrap.
2Crafty Chipboard have some beautiful Christmas chippies! I love them.
 I used the gorgeous "Deer Set" for my first gift.

I used it with gold embossing paste and glitter gold embossing powder.
 Next I used distress ink to make a grungy look.

My deer looks great on my branch tree.

For the next one, I created my wrap with acrylic paint and stencil. Then, I placed
 a poinsettia flower on the top. "Holly Flourish" was perfect with my flower.
I used my favorite embossing powder, glitter gold.

For the last project, I used "Holly Vine Wreath" that I embossed with gold 
embossing powder . It gives a great look with my doily and my poinsettia flower. 
I love it small because it works perfectly on gifts and Christmas cards.

Well thats all from me today.
