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!
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!):
