October SOTM: 12x12 Layout

12" × 12" Merry Christmas Page

Helpful Hints

To create the techniques featured in this artwork, follow the helpful hints outlined below. Then use the pattern (Reflections: Front & Center—Trio™) found on page 70 of our Reflections® how-to publication for inspiration.
  • Cut the title phrase at 3" <Christms>, found on page 80 of the Artiste booklet.
  • Cut the large ornament at 3" Shift+3D Object <HoHoHo>, the snowflake at 1 1/2" Shift+Accent 1 <HoHoHo>, the two red snowflakes at 1 1/2" Shift+Accent 4 <HoHoHo>, and the two mittens at 2 1/2" Accent 2 <Noel>, all of which are found on page 79 of the Artiste booklet.
  • To create the paint splatter look, add a few drops of Colonial White re-inker and pearl paint to the spray pen and shake until combined. Spray as much as desired and set aside to dry.
  • Embellish with stamped accents, paper accents, and accessories, adding dimension with 3-D foam tape as desired.
