well dressed tag this season.
Crazy Amigo, The Three Muses and Something Completely Different
have the theme of Christmas this week. Tag Tuesday is also featuring
the Colors of Christmas with accents in either silver or gold.
Go have a look at all of them for a last little bit of Christmas cheer.

I have been grappling over this color combination of green, yellow and brown since Tuesday. I finally had to resort to plundering my paper stash and luckily I found just the right color combination.
Then the next hurdle was to use this combination in a holiday theme. For the life of me, I just could not manage to produce a Santa or a Christmas motif using these colors. Today I decided to stop thinking about Christmas and went with the holiday of New Years.

I stamped the cover paper with white acrylics which acts as a resist when dry.
I then did a light glaze of very pale red which was mixed with a touch of iridescent medium.
While that was still wet I wrote some script into the wet paint. When dry, I stamped the
brocade motif in red and added some copper designs.
These little beauties make great stocking stuffers.
Maybe you know someone on your gift list who would appreciate a mini book full of color.
