Four colours of Christmas

Hello, friends!
Magical December is here and I'd like to show you some Holiday inspirations today.

Together with three other artists I was invited by Sizzix to create projects in 4 different colour schemes.

For this Noel decor I used the Sizzix die to cut out the chipboard letters and simply glued them together to make them more sturdy so that the decoration could stand on its own.

I played with my Sunrise Sunset and Vintage Vanity paper collections and some Mechanicals to contrast the delicate papers. I also used crackle paint and subtle touches of colour achieved with Primary Elements pigments that I love so much..

The thing is we are not bound to traditional Christmassy colours.
Think outside the box, look around for inspirations and play a little, surprise your near and dear and perhaps surprise yourself. ;)
Stay warm!

Absolutely perfect Christmas neutrals - I love each and every single one of these... but probably my favourite thing is that tinted crackle on the NOEL letters - beautiful!
