Today, I'm sharing a mixed media reindeer canvas I made from a Christy Tomlinson class called A Winter Whimsy Workshop. I used acrylic paints, stencils, spray inks, patterned papers, Faber Castell Artist Pens and rub-ons to make this canvas. I loved this workshop and all the super cute things we made. I am not a drawer or a painter so I followed Christy's lead closely and he looks very similar to her reindeer. I hope one day to make my own characters. 

have loved all the mixed media workshops I have taken from her and I suggest you take the Winter Whimsy sometime if you like cute mixed media holiday projects. And, I love to take these workshops in the spring and summer when I'm not so busy with other Holiday things and I'm not in the Christmas rush. She puts her workshops on sale several times a year, so be sure to keep close tabs if you are interested in taking one of her classes. 

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to stop back by tomorrow for my winner post!

Today, I'm sharing an almost one layer card using Tim Holtz new half tone Christmas stamp sets. It was so fun to use. I'm so glad I picked it up on Black Thursday at a great price. I stamped the snowman 3 times. Once with white, then twice with two blue Ranger Archival Inks. The label and the sentiment came from Tim Holtz Simple Sayings Stamp set. I cut out the label and adhered it with foam tape. I also inked the edges with the dark blue ink. Finally, I had some clear stars and I colored one yellow with a Copic marker and put it on top of the halftone tree.

Today, I'm sharing a set of glittery light bulb ornaments. I got some of these wooden lights at Michaels. I covered them with Gesso and then I added Tim Holtz Distress Glitter. I painted the tops of them Silver with Tim Holtz Pewter Distress Paint. The area between the glitter and the silver paint was a little rough so I added some Silver Liquid Pearls where the bulb meets the top of the ornament to make it look a little smoother. Therese area so cute and glitter and they look great on the tree!!

Today, I'm sharing a set of bright and shiny Christmas tress. I bought these wooden trees at Michaels and I had a hard time deciding how to decorate them. In the process, I created a really cool look. I painted each one with a different color of acrylic paint and then I painted over them with acrylic glitter paint in the same or similar color. The glitter paints are mainly just a clear paint with colored glitter. It made a really cool shiny almost metallic effect. I love it so much I decided to just leave them painted and not to add anything else to them. 

You could paint these to match your holiday decor and use them for great decorations almost anywhere. Thanks for stopping by and be sure to stop back by tomorrow for Day 10!
