I don't know about you , but I have not made a lot of New Years Resolutions ... I think I'm still going to work on some from last year LOL. I'm grateful to see another year, I'm excited to see what the New Year will bring. I've created this New Year Tag Using my Ledger Script Stamp, Linen background stamp, Calendar Stamp and Snowflakes from Mini Holidays 2 Stamp Set and Tall Text Stamp Set. ( all Tim Holtz of course).
I used antique linen distress paint with the linen stamp for the base of the background; then used frayed burlap and pumice stone spray distress stain drying with the heat tool between layers to get that cool effect. I stamped the script with black archival ink. The calendar was stamped with cornflower blue archival ink, and the snow flakes were stamped with stormy sky and weathered wood distress ink. I used the snowflake stencil and blueprint sketch for the other snowflakes. I distressed the edges with the distress tool and walnut stain distressing ink. I added foil to the tag for highlights. The blue was a little brighter than I had envisioned but certainly added interest !
I'm praying that you will have a prosperous New Year; in your families, in your crafting adventures; in your personal lives. Whatever your desires are make the best of everyday you have to spend with family and friends; and don't forget your " Me" time!
Invest some time in your spiritual growth; if you haven't met my Best Friend ... get to know Him in a personal way ... He desires a personal relationship with you and He's the Best friend you will ever have... He loves you unconditionally! :)
I have loads of projects now UFO from 2015 that I would love to see finished, this first month in 2016. And of course the Queendom is always a priority. If I left it to my husband I think the living room aka as the Queendom annex would be the first priority ... we shall see.
Whatever you do enjoy yourself... Have a Blessed Day ... Happy 2016 !
