It’s the last day of July and I managed to get a “Christmas in July” project designed and completed! July has been a busy month for me, so I am happy to have this project completed.
I used a galvanized Christmas countdown calendar I purchased about a year ago at my local Michael’s store. It was at a clearance price too!
For this project design, I used Graphic 45’s “Twelve Days of Christmas” Deluxe Collector’s Edition paper collection. I use a few sheets of the designer paper to cover the match boxes, some of the stickers and chipboard elements.
I applied gesso (Prima Marketing Inc), and painted the entire galvanized piece with “Red Wine” Metallique from Prima Marketing Inc/Finnabair/Art Alchemy.
The greenery and pinecones are from a die set by Elizabeth Craft Designs #1091 – Garden Note – White Pine Pinecone & Bough.
