Mixed Medium: Oh Christmas Tree with Shari Carroll

Mixed Medium with Shari Carroll

It’s Christmas Eve!!! I’d like to take a quick moment and wish you all the very best the season can bring. I hope that all your wishes come true and you have a chance to enjoy time with your family and friends; cherish the moments and don’t forget to take pictures!!!

I thought it would be fun to create a bright and cheery mixed medium project where the happy just pops! I’ve used some new product that I’m absolutely in love with. It’s by Jane Davenport. The papers and pieces make collage so easy. You may think I painted the background, but it’s actually Jane’s paper! Woah…. right??

I started off by covering the Tim Holtz Small Tag Thickboard with paper using her Medi-Yum. From there I added tissue shapes, Fantastical Washi Tape, Journal Tape strips and Self Adhesive Tissue shapes.

Then I went to town cutting strips of white paper and Jane’s paper for my tree. I added Rock Candy Distress Glitter to the white pieces and stapled the pattern pieces on top. Then I added colorful buttons (from my stash) and some Tim Holtz Baubles for decorations.

Once I had my tree decorated I added some wording. I used the Tim Holtz Christmas Remnant Rubs for my small messages and the Simon Says Stamp Believe Die for my main title.

I filmed the complete process which you can view below, or on our YouTube channel HERE.
