The entire world celebrates

 

Cristmas
New year
Snowy Winter :-)
Scrapbooking websites are full of challenges for the holidays. New year greeting cards, papers and stamps with elements of Christmas ,  embellishments with snowflakes, Santa Claus and wishes for the new year.  Home design websites are full of ornaments for holidays : how to decorate for Christmas , how to serve up  the perfect holiday dinner. Gifts, Christmas trees, red and green,  winter,  holliday and magic are in the air.
I want a  little magic TOO! :-)
Although that outside sunny and warm [there is until yesterday ] and
I didn't  have
anything Christmasy. So I decided to make some magic with what I had.
כל העולם חוגג
כריסמס
שנה חדשה
וסתם שלג של חורף.
אתרי סקראפ מלאים באתגרים לחגים. כרטיסי ברכה לשנה חדשה, נייר, וחותמות עם אלמנטים של חג קישוטים עם  פתיתי שלג, סנטה קלאוס ואיחולי שנה חדשה . אתרי עיצוב מלאים בקישוטים לחג : איך להתאים עיצוב הבית לתקופת החגים, איך לסדר שולחן בצבעים של חג. מתנות, עצי אשוח, בצעים של ירוק אדום ואווירה חורפית וחגיגית בכל עיצוב.
קסם באוויר...
אצלנו המון שמש  וחם [האמת התחיל קצת חורף]
ואני רציתי קצת מהקסם. רק שאין לי חומרים מתאימים ולא קישוטים חוץ מכמה מדבקות. אז מה עושים? עושים.


I learned a new techniques that combine scrapbooking with mix media.
I used altered cardstock  for my handmade fence with layers of different mediums:
- decoart  decoration paste
- decoart texture fierro
- ranger distress crackle paint
- sudor acrylic paint


I enjoy making my own embellishments. So,  i used olive cardstock for a christmas tree brach. I altered them with encore ultimate metallic green ink, versa color seafoam ink, versacolor vanilla ink, silver ice stickles.


After the branch was ready,  I made the decorations from my new purchase from blitsy


 I created a few layers for this card
Layer #1 -  base card - white cardstok
Layer #2 - fence - [And I'm not counting all the layers of paint and a medium that has]
Layer #3- white lace
Layer #4 -   Bo Bunny cardstock stickers
Layer #5 - Bo Bunny chipbord stickers
and additional layers of embellishments

On inside and back side of the card I decorated to a minimum.





I enjoyed every second. Hope you enjoyed too :-)
