And now it is time for inspiration from our team!

I was so excited to see this month's mood board. I adore the Yule season. The smell of fir and pine trees, cosy fires, twinkly lights.

I had so many ideas it was hard to narrow them down.

In the end, I decided to alter a tin. It’s about 8 inches tall and used to have two sets of dominoes inside. 

It’s not the most artistically accomplished project but it’s a fun project. For me, the yule season is a time for fun.

I made the lid look like a front door with a Yule wreath and a fancy door knocker.

I’ve used the red and Green inspiration from the mood board and I’ve added the rusty colour that I saw reflected in the warm wood in some of the mood board photos. 

When I’d constructed my little scene, hung my handmade wallpaper, and decorated the tree I realised I couldn’t leave it all clean and new. 

I’m all about vintage and distressed, grungy projects. So I added burnt Siena paint and rust paste over most of it, to add that old-used vibe. 

I’m really looking forward to seeing how you all interpret the mood board when you share your projects with us.

Isn't this moodboard amazing? It smells like Christmas. As soon as I saw him, I immediately thought that I must use a photo from last year's Christmas session.

I chose a baubles-shaped base and covered it with red Impasto paint. To create the shading, I applied a black gesso over the edges with a sponge. Then I gently pulled up the edges with dark Liquid Acrylic and gold wax.

Gilding glue is great for creating dots. After drying, I applied metallic flakes to them. Now it looks more like a Christmas bauble😊

I also covered the bottom and top with metallic flakes. The golden flakes were too homogeneous, so I used Liquid Acrylic to create shadows.

I chose elements associated with Christmas to create a 3D composition. I glued everything together using a heavy body gel - it is irreplaceable in this type of project.

This is a Christmas tree made of cardboard, which we can put as part of the decoration of our house.

A moodboard with very Christmas colours, you can already feel the steps of Santa Claus.

It is lined with kraft paper, with a layer of white gesso, icing paste, stencil, crackle paste, Impasto, moulds, wax, and mini art stones.

I love the holiday season.

It is a time of memories, decorating the house and spending time with family. I always choose red and white colours. 

Liquid Acrylic- Carmin impresses me. It intensifies my passion for creating with red and rust.
