Day 17 – 25 Days of Christmas Tags

Hi there!

I’m playing along with Tracey McNeely’s 25 Days of Christmas Tags event this year.

Jillybean Soup was the sponsor for Day 17. I LOVE Jillybean papers! They are so cute… I MAY have quite a few in my craft room! I thought Kristine Davidson’s tag with a tree made from rolls of paper was absolutely wonderful PLUS it would be a great opportunity for me to use some of my paper mountain!

I rolled some papers around a pencil and stuck them individually before creating the tree design. I added a glittered star and trunk to finish it off. I cut a tag from some patterned paper but when I placed the tree on top, I felt that the paper was far too dark for the tree, especially the trunk. To lighten it a little, I sponged on some Picket Fence distress ink – I was very happy with the how it softened the colour!

Thanks for stopping by!
