Hello again, it's time for another Craft-Room Challenge - the weeks are flying by and it will soon be Christmas! The Home Decor entries were stunning - it will so tough picking a top 3! This time, the challenge has been chosen by the lovely Julia, and the theme is "Anything Christmas" - I'm sure that you're all ready to start (if you haven't already!) on your Christmas cards & projects so this is a perfect time for this theme. There's a £10 voucher to be won in the random draw, and a top 3 will be picked - check out the "Pesky Rules" here and above all, have fun!!!
My DT project for this challenge is a little wall hanging (yes, another wall hanging, lol!) "Counting the Days to Christmas":
The idea is to simply tick off the days to Christmas.
I've used some chipboard, cut to size with a craft knife, for the two pieces and covered them with paper from Papermania "Silent Night" collection. I've inked the edges with some Old Paper and a little Pumice Stone DI, and some gold metallic rub on. The background to the image, sentiment and calendar part are also inked in Old Paper as a base colour - on the main image, I've also used Weathered Wood for the sky. The Crafty Individuals (CI-254) image is stamped in black Stazon and the buildings are coloured in neat Distress Reinkers Antique Linen, Frayed Burlap and Weathered Wood. I've used a little Jones Tones glitter on the stars, then matted the image onto some cream cotton which I've frayed around the edges, then the image, sentiment and calendar are matted onto black, finely corrugated paper/card. The calendar is attached to the main piece with black ribbon, and I've used the same ribbon to hang it, and a little metal snowflake to finish.
All inks and chipboard are available from Craft-Room Online shop. Sentiment and calendar are done on pc.
I hope you like it.
