It's been a long time from my last LO and I already missed making them. This LO was just waiting to be done and it was done in a surprisingly short time. The base paper was quite girly so I tried to make it more boyish with adding some metal inserts and wire swirls.

I feel very inspired and I have already some projects in my mind for the next weeks.... Have a great time and don't forget to come back ;-)

Recycled ribbon rolls tree

I knew I would find an idea of how to use my empty ribbon rolls. They were in a box for a long time but finally they are well dressed for holidays. This recycled ribbon rolls tree is a simple idea but when you add some patterned paper, some holiday wishes and some rough crystals it gets a lot of personality and dimension.

I think this one enters in the top ten of my favorite trees. I hope you like it too :-)

Have fun searching for presents and backing for holidays!

Paper cup christmas tree

It's paper christmas time! I was thinnking about a new version of the paper tree because I have to make one this time of the year. I knew the idea was arround the corner and then I saw ....paper cups!!!! I started to search the shape of a christmas tree in them and this is the result. I love it because it has a clean design but you can add some warm details with the extra decorations. There are just some small tricks to follow and you can make your own paper cup christmas tree.... Intrestead?

I'll also submit this project for this week Color room palette. You can also check it for some inspiration.

There is still time to make some new christmas decoration...... I'm going to dig some extra ideas :-)

Have a great time!

Christmas can card

Hello! How are you? Do you also have all your home covered with glitter and tiny red balls? I do and I'm sure there some hovering waiting for me after sharing my christmas card 2011. I decided I wanted to do something else instead regular paper and like I've told you I found the can extremly inspiring. This one is a simple project but with a guaranteed effect. All you have to do is to paint an empty can. Take a paper and cut it to fit into the can and distress it using a regal Tattered angels glimmer screen. Complete using christmas stamps and embellishments. Tip: put some pieces of foam behind the glittered letters to make them pop out - it really makes the difference! Insert the key into the can top roll.

There's also a lot of space at the back of the can to write great christmas wishes. I hope you like the idea of my christmas can-cards. Have fun making your own cards and enjoy this great time.

Christmas ball #4 and Tattered Angels Color Connection

Hello! Here I am and I want to share another christmas ball with you. This one is a little bit more wintry with its blue shades. I love winter time that goes hand in hand with christmas and creates the perfect atmosphere.

I created a little christmas tree out of small gears from old broken clocks. The little christmas tree is standing on a glittery hill and has a star going arround it. The bottom part of the ball is covered with patterened paper on the inside and of course the gouze covering on the outside (I just can't help using this technique with my balls :-) ) I used also a Pinkpaislee adornment that I transformed it from a hokus pokus style to a winter themed tag. There is a Tattered angels leave chip that I covered with some Glimmer glaze and also with transparent crackle paint and a grungeboard snowflacke. Having all the ball in winte colors there was necessary to put a touch of red - a red and white string.

There are some additional news.... Tattered Angels is so excited to announce some new members to our Color Connections Team!!!! Both of these companies will be such an asset to Color Connections. They both bring so many different opportunities for creative growth to the Tattered Angels table. Please give a big Tattered Angels welcome to:

Basically Bare AND Canvas Corp!!!

That's just super exciting!!!!!!

Have a wonderful day and enjoy creating!
