City Star Christmas
I really had fun with her, especially because I LOVE Christmas (mainly because of the reason for it but also because I love making Christmas crafts!). I was going to use the traditional colors of Christmas, but decided that she looked more like a "pink lady"...all girly. So I used my Prima watercolor pencils and some Prismacolor pencils and colored her in all pink. I don't know if you can see it, but after I colored the "snow" in the back, I added Glass Glitter from ReneaBouquets through her Etsy store.
I then cut out my base tag made from chipboard. I colored it with Inklingz Shimmering Watercolors I bought through the ScrapbookingwithMe Boutique Facebook page. Then I added the doily (Trimcraft Sweet Paris Paper line, boutique) and the canvas band onto it after the colors had dried. To keep the layers going, I also colored the canvas stocking and heat dried it, then adhered it to the top. I mounted her (I call her Holly Molly *wink*) with foam tape. Oh, I also added pink glitter glass to her stocking cap.
The snow flakes are from American Crafts POW Glitter Paper I also bought from the boutique, along with the bow. Everything else I already had in my stash, including the tree. The tree was actually a button I had bought in a pack from Hobby Lobby. I just cut the "loop" from the back of it so it would lay flat. Once that was done, I attached the ribbon around the perimeter of the tag, then added more of the glitter paper onto the back to hide all that "messy work". ;-)
I hope you enjoyed my project! And I hope that you can join us at the Crafty Gals Corner blog and create your own "Christmas in July" project! I can't wait to see all the projects!
