This month our theme for the hop is CHRISTMAS and here is my project:
I was going through my "things to alter" cabinet and came across this wooden plaque so I decided to make a Christmas Countdown wall hanging. I used Christmas Tree Chloe (yep, I just love that girl, as if you couldn't tell). I colored the image with copics and added some Flower Soft to the pot the tree is in, some stickles to the trim on Chloe's hat and top as well as the star and then "decorated" the tree with some mini pearls and a bow. I created the countdown panel on the computer. All of the papers, aside from the solid cardstock, have been sponged with ink. Instead of using ribbon for the "hanger" I used some hemp twine and added two wooden beads (courtesy of my daughter's beading kit since I don't have any beads other than micro beads or small seed beads). I took a pretty pink colored pencil from my box of Crayola pencils and added that to the side so the days could be crossed off. I am really happy with how this turned out and think that perhaps this may be a project for one of my Scout troops.
For my Christmas Countdown I used the sketch over at 2 Sketches 4 You
