I love it when I get to hang out with the Our Daily Bread design team! Today we are showcasing the new releases for October in a blog hop. If you're a regular reader of my blog and just happened upon my section of the hop, you may want to start back at the beginning. Prizes are involved!! The ODBD Blog is the place to get started - actually you'll start and end the hop there, and if you should happen to get lost or interrupted in between, you can always go there for a complete list of links in the correct order. If you came to my blog from Betty's blog, you are doing just fine.
Collage designs are so fun to create, and to decorate! I'm excited to bring you a stamp where you can decorate your own tree... especially since I won't get to decorate my Christmas tree this year (we will be traveling to the States in December, so my tree has to stay in the box this time... sigh!). Imagine the possibilities of color schemes, bling and decorations... so much fun. Decorate it differently every time, every day - sure! Way more fun than a real Christmas tree.
I went with a vintage color palette on the collage, using Touch Twin Markers (BR134, Y36, Y41, Y42, RP7, and R2) to color in the image. There is dimensional glaze on the ornaments and Gold Flower Soft as tinsel. I used a little gold leafing on the star, applying it with a Sakura glue pen. The gold edges of my panel and card are Peel Off stickers, also from Flower Soft. I colored the gingham ribbon with a marker to match.
The word collage Joy Tree will make quick and easy CAS (clean and simple) cards a breeze too. Here's mine... in fact I think this will be just the ticket for my Christmas cards this year... simple black on white, with a star eyelet at the top... it will help me use up some ribbon so I can make room for more!! Heheh... And who knows how long I've had those eyelets...
