Christmas Fairytale Little Red Queen Christmas tree

Hello everyone. Let's continue our Christmas Fairytale with a super simple project! A cute christmas tree made up from.... christmas presents. Of course they are fake but don't tell anyone!!!



If you want to make this kind of tree you just have to glue together some sqares of cardboard and than wrap them in pattern paper. I used some really lovely red and white paper from Canvas Corp. I used some rope and some wire also from Canvas Corp to replace the classic ribbon. 







The decoration s are up to you. I suggest small ones to keep the gifts visible.  Remember that you can make the packages in the size you want depending on what size you want your tree to be.

Christmas Fairytale Icy Tree

Here is my third project that continues the Christmas Fairytale. It's an icy looking tree but I would said that there is also a pinch of whimsical atmosphere because all that swirls, dots and stripes, don't you think.


I always want to make something in a new way and this time I used something that is typically for fall but in the end the tree looks a real winter queen. I decided to use the Sizzix Bigz Die - Tattered Leaves  and display them in the tree shape using a simple paper cone for the base. I've cut out many leaves from the Canvas Corp papers:  Farmhouse Christmas on Ivory, Blue &Ivory Ribbon Stripe, th Black &White Love Newsprint, the Tan &Ivory Mini Dot Reverse and I also cut the leave from the Tattered Angels Mistable Papers Soaker and Corduroy. Many leaves that make a nice dimension.



The base of the tree is made with cream burlap from Canvas Corp. It was only necessary to add a turquoise bow.


 On the leaves, to make them stronger, I used the crackle paint, some white acrylic for the traces of snow and some glitter and small shiny stars.

I also made some swirly and put them in between the leaves to make the tree more intresting and full. Some of the swirls are enriched with the Dome Studs from 7Gypsies and I also glued on the tree some crystaly from the same brand.


The tag is from the Farmhouse Christmas Tags on Ivory paper. You get a 12 x 12 with a lot of tags and use them in many projects. They are so nice!


An icy tree for you and me.....

Christmas fairytale Winter Wonderland Surprise ball

I'm back. I'm continuing the Christmas Fairytale and I have another Surprise ball to share with you. This one is Winter Wonderland...




As for the first one also this one is covered with some odl already ruined curtain and painted with some semitransparent acrylic paint and Champagne Glimmer Glam from Tattered Angels will give  to the new creation an old look.


 For the inside I got a big help from my mom. She did the tiny christmas tree and the snowflake. Both are enriched with crystals and the little tree has also the dome studs form 7Gypsies representing the Christmas ornaments. Alittle snowflake is floating arround the christmas treee helped with the wire from the metal hardware from Canvas Corp.  I also cut out a wreats from the same paper and put it on arround the button on the top of the ball.


I cut out the phrase from the Winter Wonderland out of the Stripe on Ivory paper and distressed it. I also added a pinch of glitter on every tiny snowflake. Also this time I used the canvas circle form Canvas Corp for the base where the tree is standing.

Also this time: to be continued....

Christmas Fairytale - I'll be home for Christmas Ball



Hello everyone! The countdown has begun and the Christmas ornaments are already decorating my house but there are some that are yet to come and I want to share them with you. Today will begin my...  



Let me introduce my first Christmas Fairytale Surprise ball: I'll be home for Christmas.




Who doesn't know this beatiful son and trhis unique feeling – to be at home for Christmas!!!
The ball is just a simple plastic globe, the ones you buy at the craft store but covered with some odl already ruined curtain and painted with acrylic paint and Champagne Glimmer Glam from Tattered Angels will show a new creation that looks old fashioned and prescious.
AT Canvas Corp have some beatiful Christmas papers that just let you feel the old fashioned Christmas. I cut out the phrase from the Farmhouse Christmas Stripe on Ivory paper and distressed it.  On the outside I added some twine and of course some Christmas ornaments. I took also the Apothecary labels from 7Gypsies and made the number 24 and framed them with an industrial gear that almost seems a clock – always from 7Gypsies.
  

As you open the ball there is a tiny treasure. A small home…. I made it using the papers from all the three brands: The blue on Ivory for the base, the Postale paper from 7Gypsies and the Tattered Angels Mistable paper – Satin for the roof. Everything distressed and the roof covered with some transparent crackle paint for an extra icy look. I again used the apothecary labels for making the windows and the door and a dome stud on the front, both from 7Gypsies.
  

The inside of the ball is covered with stripes of Blue on Ivory CC paper and a nice lace that my mom made and blings. The bottom with the French Script CC paper as well.
The tiny home is standing on the canvas circle form Canvas Corp.
So this is the begining of my Christmas Fairytale….

Flower canvas




Hello everyone. Here is my third and last canvas for this year. It's a flower with an idea :-)



  
The background is covered with white acrylic and spryed with different Tattered Angels mists. I used the Warm green color and the walnut. I used this last mist also to distress the flower once it was done. For making it I used three types of Canvas Corp paper because is strong enough to not get smashed after misting and it keeps the shape. I choose the Diamond, the French Script, the Nespaper and the Polka Dot pattern. I used pieces of paper even on the back of the teared canvas.
 





The branches are made with Tattered Angels High Impact Paint and with the same paint are covered even the pieces of wire that continue the branches. The little industrial gears are from 7Gypsies and the metal hardware is from Canvas Corp. As usual there is a dark glow and some stitches, a must already.




I 'm planing a little surprise at the begining of December so keep coming! A great day to everyone!!!

Poison Mashroom Mixed Media Canvas

Hello everyone! let's contunue with the november canvas taste. Here is my second mixed media canvas that is folowing my Gothic Fairytale style: the poison mashroom:



This time I decided to use canvas on canvas. In fact I used this great material to make the mashroom hat and the feeling was like having a canvas on canvas - very nice! Of course many elements on this canvas had to receive a help from the Tattered Angels mists, paints, glazes... Every piece had to receive it's story. And so I used the Glaze to make the little fork appear more distressed. I made the leaking mashroom syrup :-) with the High Impact pait because it stays glossy and keeps the syrup look.


For the mashroom stem I simply used some patterned paper - the Canvas Corp Black and White Diamonds. It's a resistant paper and it truly resisted the smashing and shaping. Great one!


The fairy background is adorned with Tattered Angels Glimmer mists and some texture paste. The hat has also some accesories: the 7Gypsies industrial gears and the vintage pin that hold the Canvas Corp tag. There also the Canvas Corp pins and Metal hardware thet is almost necessary in everything I make. And also in this canvas is preset the wire as the continuation of the roots, also made with the Tattered Angels High Imapact Paint.



And here is the final touch - my favorite: a secret apothechary bottle (7Gypsies) that is the mushroom secret weapon. 


I hope you like my canvas and the metaforic elements in it. See you next time with another canvas!

Follow me mixed media canvas

Hello evryone! November is here and this time it will be canvas themed. I found my inpiration in this art white fields and they are so versatile that you can go on with creating for hours. Well her is my firs november canvas: Follow me!


I used a Canvas Corp canvas where you can find lots of sizes of them and burlap as well. For the heart I used a base of cardboard covered with Canvas Corp papers. I have to say they are very good for distressing and I found surprising especially the Blue and Ivory Mini Dot Reverse paper beacause when you blend the ink on it the white doots go brown but the blue color resists and creates a very cool effect. The other two papers are from the same brand: the Tan and Ivory Ribbon Stripe and the Black and White Diamonds. The embellishments are from 7Gypsies: the mini key, the vintage pin, the optical lens and the industrial gears.


The background is created with a generous base of white acrylic.  The branches are made as always with Tattered Angels High Impact paint thet stays glossy and resistant. Everything is completed with accents of Glimmer mist and straining of Glimmer Glazeboth from Tattered Angels. The corners of the canvas are stamped with the 7Gypsies stamp Abundance (maybe a coincidence ;-)) from the Christmas Greeting set.


This time I wanred to complete the branches with the Canvas Corp wire from the Walldeorative hardware box. I added the Black Imapct paint also here to make them more creepy and less wirely...I love how they continue to expand the canvas project out of it's space...









I hope you like this canvas because more are just about to follow. Have a nice day!

Halloween surprise ball

Hello! You probably already know that I have a passion for my surprise balls. They were almost christmasy themed but this yearI thought that it would be nice to make something for halloween and there it is: my very first Halloween Surprise Ball:


 At Cnavas Corp have some very intresting papers for Halloween. In my case I used the Haun it paper and used various elements: the Hocus Pocus on the outside of the ball, The witchy tag in the inside, the little cat beside the bottles and the little spider and the batts that I used for the bottles etiquetes.
Inside I covered one part of the ball with Black Canvas Corp paper and the other one with the Black and Ivory Zig Zag reverse paper. I used it also to create the stars on the otside with the Sizzix Bigz Die - Stacked Stars.
 I used an old belt for covering the edge of the ball and paint it with the Tattered Angels High Imapct Black Paint. I also used the paint to make the black drops inside. They stay glossy even after drying and the effect is great.


 The embellishments are from 7Gypsies: The tiny apothecary bottles are painted with the Tattered Angels Glimmer Glaze (Java). The stars are completed with the 7Gypsies Dome Studs and the key and the Vintage pin are from the same brand. The greeny center inside the ball is covered with different sizes of green burlap from Canvas Corp.On the top of tha ball I created a spider web using a thin wire.
I would say this project requires a bit more effort but I love it. Just try to make one and have a witchy halloween!
