Rustic Christmas Tree, by Natassa Blazaki
Today I’m sharing with you a rustic Christmas project, I created by using the broken pieces of a photo frame. I already used the back of the frame to make “12 Days of Christmas”, that was posted earlier this month.
So, I took the broken pieces and cut them to form a tree shape. Then, I nailed the pieces on a log! See the pictures below, to get an idea.
I used Gel Medium Matt to glue dried hibiscus leaves and some star anise, to create an interesting texture to the background. Applied White Gesso Paste. Then, the first layer of color with Glossy Ink Sprays “Emerald” and “Pine Green”. After that, I glued some chipboard wings and other embellishments I made myself. Coated the embellishments with Black Gesso Paste.
To color and accent the details of my project, I also used:
Metallic Paints “Rich Gold” and Copper”
Glimmer Ink Sprays “Gold” and “Copper”
Vintage Ink spray “Canaree”
Velvet Paste “Jasper”
Glitter Paste “Red”
I hope you enjoy it!
Wish you all Happy Holidays!!!
