Mixed Media Altered Wood Slice with Fantasy Dies

Good day everyone ! today I want to share an altered art decoration with you.

It is already the winter season and we are in a hurry to create Christmas decoration for our homes and as gifts. 

But sometimes do you feel tired of all the stereotype of Christmas decorations ? I do.
Partly cos after Dec passed , we will have to remove them or throw them away. We sure dont want to do that to our treasured hand crafted items. 

 What I made today is kind of a solution to it. 
We do not need to shout Merry Christmas and use the Santa Claus everywhere, but by the joyful colors, the glitters and sequins, we can tell that these are for this lovely season.

I have used many Fantasy Dies to create paper die cuts to add different shapes and layers to the wood piece. Then some dried fruit and plant decorated around the paper die cuts beautifully!
Fantasy Dies をたくさん使って、ペーパーダイカットを一杯作ってから、ドライフルーツとプランツに乗せ、レイヤーを作っていきました。

I used the Finnabair Texture fantasy for coloring . And a thick coat of Icing Paste Vintage gold here and there to add more GOLD to the piece.

I do hope this inspires you to make something nontraditional Christmas !
Finnabair Texture fantasy二色を使って色付けました。それから新しい Icing Paste をその上に重ねて、キラキラのゴールドを意識しました。
