Up-Cycled Christmas Tree

I had to say I was inspired by a few pieces of scrap found in a new scrapbook.   I decided to play along with the Mixed Media Place Creative Gym Exercise #2  which was to use dimension.

 I was going to make two of them and actually started to but the second one didn't turn out as nice as the first.   This was the insert holding the shape of the album. 

I coated the surface with white gesso.  After it dried I added a layer of Wendy Vecchi Crackle Embossing Paste over the holly stencil. 

After the paste dried I came back over with a mix of Ranger Distress Sprays (Pink, Orange, White) and mixed them together.   I added a few rub-ons, sequins and of course a star to the top.

I thought about this for awhile trying to decided did I want to add more and decided I loved the effect.  I have a tag that I am working on that is coordinating and can't wait to finish it out!

Thanks for stopping by..
