Every Monday, PaperCrafter’s Corner posts a magazine cover on their blog as inspiration for their weekly challenge. Based on the magazine covers, we are asked to create a papercraft project (card, art journal, scrapbook layout, etc.).
Here is the inspiration for this week.
I was lucky enough to win Magazine Mondays – Week Thirty, and I wanted to incorporate some of the paper I received as my prize into this week’s project. Since the paper is Christmas style, I decided to try my hand at a Christmas themed project in my art journal. I decided to utilize the same color palette as the inspiration piece. I used my new paper, some acrylic paints, stencils, markers, stickers, stickles, ribbons, and embellishments to create this:
I painted hearts and added a tag on the stocking paper. I painted hearts and added ribbon on the striped paper. I made a Christmas tree with plaid paper. I made an owl out of the brown paper and red hounds tooth.
The penguin is cute, but the owl, with his google eyes, is the star of the show. I love him so much, I had to give him a close-up!
Thanks for stopping by, and I hope to see you at the next Magazine Monday challenge. 🙂
