Joy and love...

Good morning all! I just saw one of my projects featured on the Moxie Fab blog, so I think it's safe for me to share it here too! This was in the Holiday Cards and More issue of Paper Crafts, which just came out!
To create this home decor project (or you could put hangers on them and hang them on your tree!), I took 2 large chip tiles from Tattered Angels and misted over them with one of their swirly Glimmer Screens. These chip tiles are rather large, I think about 9" or so. I found this pretty wood swirl decal at the craft store and couldn't wait to use it on a project! It is just brushed with copper colored acrylic paint and is flat on the back, so it attaches right to your project. Then I stamped the sentiment across the 2 tiles with alphabet stamps! The seam binding is sprayed with Olive Vine Glimmer Mist. Houndstooth letters and polkadot tape are by Pink Paislee.
We have a lot of browns in our living room, and this year I would LOVE to create a copper colored theme on our tree with ornaments, pinecones, sheer bronze ribbon, glass beaded garland, and twigs and other natural elements. That was my thought behind the color scheme when I was creating this. Oh, and isn't this a pretty mantle? I am so in love with it. Just googling Christmas trees puts me in the mood for the holidays. It's never to early to start creating for the holidays! :)

I fell in love with these the minute I saw them-and since I have most of the product I am going to give them a try. I think they'd make awesome presents.
