Global Design Project #067 - Totally Trees

Global Design Project #067 - Totally Trees

I was very happy that the Global Design Project challenge ran for two weeks this time because there is no way I would have been able to participate last week...so many things going on!  As December comes to a close, I'm finally finding the time to get back into my studio to stamp! I have missed this room.

This week's challenge is a theme: 

I really wanted to use some new things (sneak peeks are fun!) but I didn't have a single tree to work with from the new catalog...still, I did manage to sneak a few new things in! Be sure to head over to the GDP page and check out all the creativeness there...and there's still a few days left to participate in this challenge if you'd like to share your tree-themed project!

Project Tips

I decided to use the Totally Trees set from the Holiday catalog for my project.  I am drawn to this set because I love the variety of trees it provides...seven different tree images, and lots of additional pieces to dress them up!  It really is a nice, all-season set.

As for the sneak peeks...I'm soooooo excited that we have watercolor pencils again! You'll find a set of 13 in the Occasions catalog and you will LOVE them!  To create the background for the tree, I just lightly colored a little bit of pink on to watercolor paper, then brushed over it with an aqua painter.  The pencil just melts and blends like butter...GORGEOUS!  The background paper I used is going to be my new favorite...it's called Falling in Love.  It has the most beautiful, soft-colored images.  And so, so pretty new lace doilies and ribbon!  And finally, I used a new sentiment from a set called Suite Sentiments.  

If you do not have copies of both the Occasions and Sale-a-Bration catalogs, let me know...I'd be happy to send you a copy of each!

I used the following current products on this project (you'll have to wait for the new ones!):
