Beverley - Week Five Home Decoration

Hello Beverley here - this countdown is going so fast I can't believe it is Christmas  in 12 DAYS time!  My project today was inspired by something I saw while blog hopping. Someone, I can't remember who sorry, had altered an artists palette wooden tray. I found some in a local stationery store and thought it would be a great idea to create a Christmas decor mixed media piece for the countdown. I have used mainly Kaisercraft's North Pole Collection collectables and lots of other embellishments.

To prepare the palette I painted the whole thing with gesso and let it dry.  Using the Prima Decor Two stencil and moulding paste I added some texture to the palette. I then used Heidi Swapp Tinsel Colour Shine to add the silver colour.  To create the darker bits I sprayed more layers of the Colour Shine.

To finish off the project I layered tags, diecuts, flowers and other embellishments together. The round circles filled with bling are a ribbon that has been cut up.  Here are some closeups - I think I got carried away with the soft focus though!

Hope you are all getting into the Christmas Spirit! Have you put up your decorations and tree yet?
