Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree with Amy Prior

Hi Shimmerz fans! Amy Prior back with you all today to share a last minute Christmas Decoration that I made for our Christmas Table this year. Our Christmas theme is very much Bright Fun Candy Rainbow colours. Heck that is always my theme LOL.

This MDF Christmas Tree is a BTP Countdown Calendar from Kaisercraft but of course I was way too late getting it finished to use it as a countdown calendar so it just sat shining bright adorning the Christmas Dinner Table for our family this year. I have painted the entire MDF with Gesso to prime and then added lots of paper doilies to add some texture to the base. I just love how the little hints of the doilies poke through the colours here and there. 

Once my gesso and decoupaged paper doilies were dry, I have sprayed various Shimmerz Coloringz & Vibez spray paints but I have dried in between each colour to avoid making brown muddy mess. This was done quickly using my heat gun but of course if you are patient enough you could wait for each colour to dry naturally.

When the Shimmerz paint sprays were dry, I have added some stencilling using a Donna Downey Stencil and various colours of Shimmerz Dazzlerz. Man I just love Dazzlerz so much aren't they just the funnest paint colours ever? I then dried this with my heatgun before adding some final touches of Gold Acrylic Spray Paint to random spots on the tree. This was simply to help tie in the gold embellishments that I planned on adding next.

My final addition was lots of gorgeous Flourish with a Bling pearls in Antique Gold plus some FWAB Antique Gold Flourishes cut up. Last minute I thought I would add some larger baubles to the tree and these Prima Marketing Pebble Gems were the perfect choice. 

Shimmerz Paint Products used include...
Dazzlerz in Jelly Bean Green, Pucker Up Pink & Gummy Bear Blue,
Coloringz in Don't Citron Me, Oh Say Can You Sea, Pink Stiletto & Heidi Ho Blue, 
Vibez in Hermit the Frog, Grape Escape & Razzledazzle Berry.

Thanks so much for stopping by and until next time, happy scrapping!
