December Daily


I have finally finished the front cover for my December Daily. It is only going to be a 6 x 6 one this year. I am going to be using Bo Bunny’s Christmas Carousel papers for my journal and the deer and pink berries are from Anna Marie Designs.Sorry I don’t recall who made the gorgeous snowflake stencil.



This is the inside of the cover, there is a pocket at the bottom, but I don’t have anything tucked into it yet.The Christmas Carousel papers come with lots of elements which I am planning to fussy cut and use as embellishments.

Thank you for visiting, I would like to enter my December Daily cover into the Stamps and Stencils challenge which is pastels.I would also like to enter it into the Allsorts Glitter Challenge  I hope the glitter in the snow shows up!

I would also like to enter Country View Challenges Use Stencils challenge, and That’s Crafty Stencil  It Challenge

Happy Christmas/Winter crafting xx

An Apple Or Two A Day For Bernie

Do you have a folder of backgrounds which you have created but haven't used? I know I do so I pulled a colourful one of them out to use as my base for this picture.

I firmly taped my elephant stencil down with some masking tape. I swept some texture paste over the stencil with a palette knife, I wanted to give the elephant a cracked rough elephant type skin so I used a sponge (an inexpensive make up sponge) and pressed it into the paste and then quickly lifted it up. I have never used crackle paint, but you could probably create the same appearance with that.

When the paste was completely dry. I put the stencil back over the paste and carefully stuck it down. I used Rangers Cool Graphite dye ink to colour the elephant. I really should give him a name.... I think I will call him Bernie. I dabbed a sponge into the ink and dabbed it all over until Bernie was a glorious grey colour.

Now Bernie is often hungry so I quickly painted him a few apples, and coated them in glossy accents. When nice and dry I cut them all out.

I stamped a bird on a little piece of card and cut it out and sat him on Bernie's back. I added few green stamped branches and leaves, and glued the apples amongst them.Now Bernie is ready to have a feast!
