Jolly Christmas Tree - Mixed Media Wall Hanging

Although I tend to make cards that are CAS or Traditional, I always say that I am willing to try anything and today's post features this!


I think this is a little bit of a kitchen sink project -  I had an idea and I just threw everything into it.  The base is corrugated cardstock from a piece of packaging. I spread whipped spackle and glitter onto it for the base.  


My tree is part of a trio of trees that I colored with alcohol markers and trimmed out just one.  I added a generous amount of stickles to the tree and the tag.


I then just went to town adding embellishments. The one that is a little special is that little gift.  It is a self adhesive epoxy shape that I stuck to some plaid patterned paper and then added a bow.  That was really fun.

Supplies:  Just for Fun Rubber Stamps Stamptangle Trees, Memento ink, Spectrum Noir markers, Stickles Glitter Glue, Tag is from a Pebbles 6x6 paper pad called Home for Christmas, KI Playlist Icicles sticker charms (the hearts), Epiphany Crafts Shape Studio epoxy squares, American Crafts Glitter ribbon and bakers twine, gems etc from my stash, Faber Castell whipped spackle.

I would love to play along with the following challenges!
