Merry Christmas...WMS November SOAP Day4 72

Mona Pendleton | Friday, November 4, 2011 @ 12:00 AM | , , , , ,

Happy Friday! Welcome to Day #4 of the November Waltzingmouse SOAP. There are lots of festivities going on at Waltzingmouse Stamps that you won't want to miss, so please be sure to visit Claire's blog (click HERE) for COMPLETE details. I've been taking a few Mixed-Media workshops from various talented artists, one being Christy Tomlinson. If you haven't seen her work yet, you don't know what you are missing! Christy shares an awesome tutorial on her blog, click HERE, on how to create a canvas like the one I've made below. 
One thing I LOVE about creating a mixed media project is the fact that I am able to combine so many of my favorite products such as stamps, patterned paper, die templates and many mediums. I've combined stamps from several Waltzingmouse sets on this piece. The swag in the upper right corner and sentiments are from Nutcracker Sweet and the snowflakes are from Nordic Winter.
I combined patterned paper from Pink Paislee, Authentique and My Mind's Eye. Speaking of Pink Paislee, I don't know if you heard the exciting news? Pink Paislee has announced their partnership with JessicaSprague.com and will be selling their digital products exclusively at JessicaSprague.com (click HERE) for complete details.

Thanks so much for visiting today ~ hopefully I've inspired you to create! For some more fab inspiration, please be sure to visit Claire Brennan (Owner) and the following WMDT Members: Anya Schrier Becca Feeken Clare Buswell Julia Aston Jennifer Holmes Kate Whelan Kelly Schirmer Laurie Schmidlin Lynn Mercurio Mona Pendleton (that's me) Sandie Dunne Tosha Leyendekker

Supplies Used:
Stamps: Waltzingmouse Nordic Winter, Nutcracker Sweet
Die: Spellbinders Stars Five
Ink: Too many to list
Patterned Paper: Pink Paislee, Authentique, My Mind's Eye
