Table calendar with papers from Papirdesign

Here, I have created a small calendar with the new Christmas collection from Papirdesign.

The calendar has been created with thick cardboard. The cardboard has been cut in four pieces. Two larger ones to create the front and the back of the calendar, and two smaller ones used under the calendar. The cardboard pieces have been glued together with thick duck tape. The cardboard base has been covered with white paper. Then panels with Papirdesign paper, has been added. 

The calendar pages has been added in layers. The months are cut out from a Papirdesign paper. I have added layers with silver and white cardstock to the back of the calendar pages. I have added holes to the calendar pages with a punch. The book binder rings are going through the base of cardstock, and bind the calendar pages together. 

The calendar has been decorated simply inside. I always decorate my alter projects/ beyond the page items - on all the sides, including inside. I think this is important to give it a finished look. 

The ccalendar has been simply decorated at the back, with a personal stamp and a butterfly. 

On the side of the calendar, I have decorated it - mixed media style. I have used my own stencils, distress ink, and thick Opal Magic paint (One of the disadvantages of giving classes is that the paint does get thick as the lids are not always put perfectly back on. No worries - this is perfect for using with stencils). The flowers are from Petaloo. The heart is from Rayher.

Follow your dreams

This is an 8x8 inches canvas, created with two of the papers from the Ooh La La collection. The photo is taken inside one of the temples, Eikan-dō Zenrin-ji, in Kyoto, in Japan. The temple ground is surrounded by a fantastic garden in the mountain side. 

The canvas has been decorated with sprays and mists  before it was decorated with beads, flowers and metal embellishments.

Outside my window

This circular canvas has been created for Kaisercraft with the Ooh La La collection. I have used a trivet as the base. 

The trivet was painted. Then I added paper and used one of the new stencils to create pattern. I have also used glitter tape, stamped and used ink on the background. Then I added embellishments, buttons, flowers and wooden arrows. Window and flowers are from the collectables from the Ooh La La collection.

Peat Pot Christmas Scene

I love Putz houses or glitter houses. Kaisercraft's glisten collection - inspired me to make another glitter house.

I find it fun to decorate small peat Pots before Christmas. Here, I have created a tiny house, and added a small electrical tea light to the ceiling, inside the house.

The small peat pot has been painted white, before it was decorated. 

The golden Christmas tree at the back is made with a golden pipe cleaner, just curling it round as a spiral Christmas tree. The white tree is a miniature Christmas tree that I got from America. 

The little house has been cut, using a Silhouette. The house is my own design. The top can be taken of the reveal the electrical tea light inside.

I have added a piece of string around the pot, and added the "joyeux noel" embellishment.

Shaker box with a shaker card

Glisten is this months Christmas collection from Kaisercraft. It is a wonderful Christmas collection, full of gold and silver and lots of "shiny bling" in the paper. This is a fun collection to create with.

I often give away small Christmas presents, like gift cards and sweets, in a decorated box. This is a small box, created with a shaker box at the top.

The box has been created from scratch, to fit the image used at the top. I have added golden beads inside the shaker box. 

The box is simply decorated inside with dotty, golden, glitter paper.

I often decorate my boxes inside, to give them a finished look. 

I have also created a small card with the box. The shaker card has been created with the same collection, and with the same type of beads as the shaker box.

A little Christmas treat jar

I am showing another small Christmas gift idea for Hobbykunst today. This is a small jar, that can be given as a small gift for a teacher, as a small Christmas or neighbor gift.

The jar has been decorated with the new papers from Papirdesign "Gledelig jul".

On the top of the lid, I have created a small 3D landscape, inside half a small 7cm 3D bubble, created with half of an acrylic Christmas ornament. 

The landscape has been created with a church die and a moose puch from Rayher. I have used 1cm thick stripes of paper between the diecuts. The diecuts and the paper stripes has been glued together with a glue gun,  The moose is super cute. It has been created with a punch that is cutting and embossing at the same time.

Materials used:

Papirdesign: Julemorgen - Gledelig Jul

Mixed media canvas - using trash and Finnabairs Alchemy paints

This is a small canvas, created with trash, a photo, glitter cardstock from Kaisercraft and Finnabairs Art Alchemy paint.

The photo is of my little dog, that I lost this summer. She was ill, so we had to let her go.

The background is a small thin canvas, with a piece of coffee packaging glued to the canvas with liquitex multi medium. The medium is like a decoupage glue, and has been used under the packaging to glue it to the canvas, and over the packaging to seal it.

Then, I have added metal trash and beads, using liquitex heavy gel glue. This is a fantastic glue for mixed media. Then the background was painted black, and dry painted with Finnabairs Art Alchemy paint (Metallique Brass Hardware).

The text is made with a die from Tim Holtz (Tim Holtz Alterations - Thinlits - Friendship Words - Script) with Kaisercraft's glitter cardstock.

Wishing you a super weekend
