MERRY CHRISTMAS ARTY FRIENDS!
I’m Jeanine (MY ARTY HEART) and I hope you are having a fabulous time with your loved ones this Christmas. Thank you for sneaking away to visit us.
Today I wanted to do a fun little Christmas page with a gingerbread man.
You can watch the process here:
To start with my layering I use Lemon Zest Dylusions paint with TCW New Port Tiles – I start off with light colors at the bottom through larger stencils and later work with darker colors and smaller stencil openings.
Even more layers now with smaller details and darker colors, I am using Dylusions paint in Polished Jade through the 6 x 6 stencil from TCW Coronet wreath. I want to fill up more space with this darker green so I am using the 6 x 6 TCW Leaf Collection stencil. Now to bring the whole thing together, I want to mute the page a bit, so I am applying TCW Shimmery Goodness with a cosmetic sponge all over the entire page. I cut out a ginger bread man out of Kraft paper, using the templates on my Brother Scan n Cut, and adhered him to my page using TCW Matte Gel Medium. Now I am shading using a Stabillo All Pencil in Black – and also using Jane Davenport Mermaid markers around the cookie.Next I add some TCW Gold Gesso with a pallet knife, and while it is still wet, I scribble journal in it, so add some texture. Finally I add the finishing touches by sticking down some alpha stickers to spell out MERRY CHRISTMAS and added some Tim Holtz – Idea-ology – Chatter washi.
