Day 11

Happy 11th day of Christmas!!!! I have a fun project for you today!!!! I follow Ellen Hutson's Blog and she posted a wonderful project that I knew I just had to make for myself!!!! I decided to use The Girl's Paperie Tinsel and Twig papers and some of Tim Holtz techniques and I also wanted to throw in some Papertrey Ink goodies and this is what I came up with!

Vintage Family Christmas
Supplies Used:
7 Gypsies Shadowbox Tray
The Girl's Paperie Tinsel and Twig Patterned Paper
Bazzill Cardstock
PTI Rustic White Cardstock
Tim Holtz Grunge Paper
Tim Holt Grungeboard Alphabet
Tim Holtz Ideology
Tim Holtz Stamps: Tree, Grand Tree, Postcard, December Calendar
Tim Holtz Dies: Paper Rosette, Reindeer Flight, and Tattered Florals
Tim Holtz Inks: Barn Door and Brushed Corduroy
Papertrey Ink Stamps: Vintage Ornaments and 2010 Holiday Tags
PTI Ink: Pure Poppy
PTI Buttons and Twine
K and Company Chipbox
Graphic 45 Christmas Past Tags
Webster's Pages Green Bloomers
Read Lead Paperworks Stamps Vintage Worn Dot
Crate Paper Chipboard Frame
Martha Stewart Glitter
Making Memories Paint Manila
Jenni Bowlin Peal Flowers
Copic Marker: Y32 Cashmere
Red Lead Paperworks Bells
I used Tim Holtz Paper Rosette Die to make the accordian medallions. I painted the alphas with Manila paint and coated them with Glitter.
I found an old box of K and Company Vintage Chipboard pieced and they went perfectly with this project!
I cut out 6 red Tattered Florals and 3 green Tattered Florals. I stamped the red flowers with the Vintage Dot stamp inked in Pure Poppy Ink and inked all the edges with Brushed Corduroy. I I layered 2 red florals and 1 green floral per flower. I added a Jenni Bowlin Pearl Flower that I colored with a Cashmere Copic Marker.
I put together a fun little Tim Holtz Ideology Chain and I covered a Graphic 45 Tag with Tim Holtz Fragment by spreading some Glossy Accents on the tag.

I cut out the Reindeer and I inked and embellished them with some PTI Twine and some Bells I found at Read Lead Paperworks. I added some Webster's Pages Bloomers and some rusty snowflakes from my stash.

This was such a fun project and I thank Ellen Hutson for the inspiration!!!

Thanks for stopping by and I will see you tomorrow for the final day of the 12 days of Christmas!!!
