My Time To Craft Christmas Challenge

Hello  my dear lovely crafty friends, Welcome back to my blog. 

A very warm good evening to you all. Hope everyone is doing well. How is the weather at your place??

My beautiful loving friend Shell Shearer Swinscoe has started a new Challenge blog only for Christmas. The blog name is My Time To Craft Christmas blog. From this month you get chance to create a lot of Christmas cards in advance only, no need to wait till August or so on.

Our first Challenge of this fortnight starts from today and the theme for this challenge is REINDEER. 

And I have created an double page art journal using the fussy cut from a Christmas pack.

●First I coloured my journal pages with Distress Oxides using blending tool.

●Next I took background stencil and blending foam to give texture effect, I started to create my background.

●Now I took few fussy cut elements and started to arrange it on my pages, when I was happy with the placing, I started to adhere it using liquid glue. 

●Now to add more texture, I took my favourite gold embossing paste and script stencil & added texture, here and there.

Hope you like it. Created a simple art journal using few supplies. Please do leave feedback so that I can improve myself more.
