Christmas Journal Page - Christmas in JULY! - Dyan tells you how!

Taken from Dyan Revealey's BLOG

My new Christmas stamp set, Stocking Fillers, is absolutely flying out of the door and Jay has a ton more samples to show you.
You can find most of the material used here on our store. These include Dylusions Paints and Inks, Ranger Archival Ink-pads and Ranger Blending Tools area. BUT remember use what you have at home, experiment and follow your creative instinct.
But I thought I would do a quick step out of a journal page background, to show that you can use them for bigger projects
I started by doing my blocking technique in Christmas colours. I used Fresh Lime, Cut Grass. Squeezed Orange and Postbox Red Dylusions paints.

Once you have covered the pages in blocks of colour, go over each colour again to make it more solid.

Take the stencil and add Squeezed orange snowflakes onto all the Cut Grass blocks.

Repeat this method onto the other blocks.
I used Cut Grass Holly on the Fresh Lime
Fresh Lime snowflakes on the Postbox Red.
Postbox Red holly on the Squeezed Orange.
Not sure why but the colours are really off on the photo below :-(

I inked up the Merry Christmas stamp with black Archival ink

And stamped it onto one of the colour blocks.

And repeated this across the page with the remaining stamps.

I then outlined the stencil images with a black pen

Finally I added faux stitching around the blocks, giving it the appearance of a patchwork quilt.
