The festive season is now in full swing and I’ve got something a little different this month using one of the brilliant Christmas cut files. I’ve created a festive art journal page in my Dylusions art journal.
I used the Simple Christmas Tree cut file and resized it to approximately 9×7 inches. I then used the inner Christmas tree shape as a mask.
I added Tim Holtz Distress Oxides in Lucky Clover and Twisted Citron using a blending tool round the edge of the cut file.
To add more detail I stamped festive icons and phrases using the same Distress Oxides along with grey, red and brown. I overlapped the stamps on to the Christmas tree mask so when it was removed the bold Christmas Tree shape was clearly visible. I added faux stitching in black pen to out line the tree shape also.
I finished off by adding coloured stamped images and a sentiment. Then just a dash of glitter to create some festive sparkle!
The Dylusions Journal, Simple Christmas Tree cut file and Distress Oxides are all currently available on the website. Along with loads of other mixed media items perfect to try your hand at art journalling.
