PaperArtsy Monthly callenge Wintery Journalling by Alison Bomber}

Merry Christmas Crafters. Welcome to here.
Over on the PaperArtsy blog Alison Bomber well come back and her fabulous journal page project which you can see HEREI was very inspired by her project that looks very simple but it has been precisely computed. Although I can not make like her but I tried to play along.
I always reminds me of the picture books 'the little mermaid' and 'Hansel and Gretel' that my mother bought me to Christmas when I was child. These books were lost but the fantasy world is still clearly in my memory.
This is my 'the little mermaid' panel.

Thank you for stopping by and good see you next year. Have a nice new year!!

PaperArtsy blog Challenge Chunky ATC with LPC by Liesbeth Fidder

Hello crafters and welcome here.
December is the busiest month for all crafters. But I do not even so lol.
The busiest day is from end of December to three days of January in Japan.
Also we make New Years card.
Over on PaperArtsy blog Liesbeth Fidder well come back and her marvelous project 'Chunky ATC' which you can see HERE.
I love her projects, especially I love her color scheme.
I followed her Chunky ATC and color scheme today.

I used chunky wooden block but it was not exactly ATC size.
Start I painted white gesso all over the wooden surface then I used grunge paste onto the wooden surface with self made cloud stencil. Then it dried, I painted the background with Beach hut,Toffee and some more Fresco Finish. Although I used Golden regular gel gloss with some stencil. 
I then stamped wings-plate-3 stamps (also I used opposite surface too.) with smoothy heavy weight card, painted with Fresco and fussy cut -made layers.

This is the opposite.

Both side, I used shrink plastic with Song Bird die and Darcy's stamps EDY10 leaves. I stamped Hot pick 1102 fern by Jet Black Archival onto background but it didn't work.

This is the top.
Finally I had use Treasure Gold white fire some places.

Thank you for dropping by... Have a wonderful Christmas month!!
