December Calendar Art

Hi - another post! Just sharing my December Calendar Art with you.
Made using my Silhouette Portrait with a design from the design studio.

DT post for Crafty Calendar -

Hi everyone! Well it's that time of year again - already - I can't believe where this year has gone!
The theme over at Crafty Calendar this month is:
Christmas Time

and we are sponsored by:

I have used the digi image 'Three Christmas Sweaters' - love it!
I printed it to the size I wanted & coloured using DI.
I found a window die that I wanted to use on my Silhouette Portrait & resized & just cut out the image I wanted. The same with the tree with the 'pawbles' on it.
I backed the 'window' with some backing paper, then stamped the image onto it. Placed some gold mirri board behind the tree.
Cut out a nice tartan cushion for the dogs to sit on.
Arranged everything as I wanted it, using foam pads on the dogs.
Pop over to the Crafty Calendar blog to check out the other DT makes. Hope you can join in this month.
Thanks for stopping by.

DT Post for Creative Artiste #21 December Challenge

Hi - time for another challenge over at 

The theme is : Anything Mixed Media Goes.

Our sponsor is:

Well it is December - so I am sharing a Christmas canvas with you.
I drew the tree onto the back of the canvas & carefully cut out with a craft knife.
Then I took a piece of A4 card & embossed the top half using a dotty embossing folder. For the snowy bottom I used strips of masking tape, overlapping so that it doesn't stick to itself then I could roll the edges to give a bit of texture. I painted the tape with white acrylic paint & when dry added some sparkle with stickles glue. Stuck this to the back of the canvas - leaving a space bottom right to put the battery pack of the lights. Poked a small hole to thread the lights through.
Die cut snowflakes, reindeer, poinsettias, holly & pine sprigs from card. 
I arranged everything onto the canvas, adding some red gems for holly berries, blue gems in the middle of the snowflakes & loads of stickles glitter all over for a snowy, frosty feel.
Turned on my lights & arranged where I wanted them - love how it has turned out. Will be finding a place for it among my Christmas decorating!
I hope you can drop over to the Creative Artiste blog & check out the other DT members makes & hope they inspire you to make something & enter the challenge.

Thanks for stopping by. 
Merry Christmas!!
