Rejoice! Christmas Decor
December 23, 2022
Tami here on the Clear Scraps Blog with you today and I have a project I'd like to share with you.
Jesus is the reason for the season, so how about creating some Christmas decor to celebrate his birth!
I combined several Clear Scraps products to create this decor piece...
I started with one of the 8 X 10 Wood Rectangles that come 3 to a pack. Then I separated the Angel Mini Shaker and used the 3 outline pieces for the 3 angels. I used one of Clear Scraps larger stencils for the title, 3 X 12 Rejoice. And for a little texture, I used the Lace Doily Border Stencil for the angel wings.
I started by creating a night sky background using several shades of blue watercolor powders including a metallic. I sprinkled them on the wood, then spritzed it with water. Once the wood was dry, I added some "stars" using a splatter tool and white pearl paint..
For the angels, I used tone on tone printed papers as a base. I drew a eyes, nose and mouth with a fine black pen on peach paper for the face, cut a dress from some blue paper, and then used white pearl stencil paste to add a design to some cream paper for the wings. I painted the chipboard pieces using a silver metallic pen. Once everything was dry, I assembled the pieces. I traced around the separate parts then cut slightly inside the lines and adhered them to the back of the angels. I added halos using gold mini garland and a poinsettia for trim...
For the title, I used gold texture paste and the Rejoice stencil on red printed paper. Once the stencil paste was dry, I used a white gel pen to outline and define the letters to make them stand out...
I printed the bible verse out on vellum to add under the title.
All the pieces were then adhered to the background.
Wishing you and your family a very merry Christmas.
