Our theme is always
"Anything Mixed Media Goes"

This month we are being sponsored by:

Scrapmatts and Papertole Australia

I have created an A4 size canvas. It was actually my sister's birthday present.

I started by fixing torn strips of paper from Prima's Epiphany pad onto the canvas and then stencilling with texture paste through Scrapmatts Lattice stencil. I then randomly added DecoArt Crackle Paste.

Next I dribbled colour and created runs with DecoArt Misters in red and black. I added handmade poppies, glass beads and some Scrapmatts Words.

Lastly I added a gilded Scrapmatts Ornate Frame and an embossed, stamped sentiment.

Our theme every month is the popular

I have made a pyramid table decoration for Christmas.

This design has proved very popular at my Trimcraft demos this season.

I started with three 8"x 8" squares of card. Each one was scored diagonally then glued together.

I covered the three sides with a First Edition paper from the Gilded Winter paper pad and inked all the edges with VersaMagic Sea Breeze chalk ink.

I chose the Dancing Penguin image from Fred She Said. I doubled the image and reversed one of them to create a cute couple. I printed out three pairs and coloured them with my Copics. I cut all the penguins out and fixed them onto the three sides of the pyramid with foam pads.

I decorated the sides with ribbon, snowflake die-cuts and a die-cut sentiment.
