Art Journal Every Day December - Christmas Traditions

Hi there, Birgit here! Welcome to the WOW! blog today!

This is my last post on this blog. As from January I will be switching to the WOW! UK/Global Blog.
Thank you Suzy, Gina and Wow! Design Team members for a wonderful year! And thank you readers for reading my blog posts! I hope I was able to inspire you and jump start your creativity! Hopefully I will see you all again on the UK blog!

It's almost Christmas and I want to share with you an art journal page about my Christmas tree decorations for which I created an embossed Christmas tree.

I started with applying an Adhesive Sheet (Scrapbook AdhesivesTM by 3L) to a piece of cardstock and embossed it with a mix of green embossing powders, Glamour Green Glitter, Earthtone Olive Regular, Primary Evergreen Super Fine (WOW! Embossing Powders).

Then I tore the embossed paper into pieces, creating the branches of the tree.

I added some turquoise acrylic paint to 2 pieces of patterend paper to create a background and applied the branches to the paper starting from the bottom layering the pieces of embossed paper.

I used an E-Z Runner, only covering the middle part of the branches. The edges of the branches being not glued down and curling up a little reinforces the effect of the layers.

After I finished the tree I added the journaling using a white sharpie. All the German song titles of Peter
Alexanders Christmas songs :)

I added crystals as Christmas ornaments and highlighted some of the words.

The wooden snowflake was embossed with Silver Hologram Sparkle embossing powder for a sparkling effect.
