Mixed Medium: Oh Christmas Tree 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.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a blessed holiday!
This tree is amazing love the buttons and bauble embellishments and other Tim Holtz goodies! So very fun !
Love your mixed media projects – so fun to try! Very cool confetti tissue products. Happy New Year!
I love this! You are so inspiring Shari!
Wonderful, as always! I hope your hand/wrist/arm is alright!! Are you ambidextrous Shari?
I love the simple yet complexity of this beautiful tag!!! It is so creative how each layer was used,
for instance the staples add a little something that makes them pleasing to the eye. Normally I detest seeing staples in projects but these just seem to fit without glaringly standing out like a sore thumb, but these staples look fabulous!
Thank you for sharingI I think I will go and pull out my supplies and make one like it!!
Always a joy to watch you create. This is lovely! Hope your hand heals up quickly.
I can’t express just how much I love this. You are absolutely amazing.
I love this, the colors and design are so happy!
Wow! What a beautiful project-so creative! I love watching you create!
