Week 2 of "Our Beary Best"

My project this week at The Beary Scrap is a couple of quick and easy Christmas decorations featuring these awesome Christmas papers. I completely adore the color combination in these papers-- traditional red and green but dark paired with BROWN (I love BROWN!) and just a tiny bit of grey. So pretty! I am in a red/green/brown mode this week as I prepare for my Christmas craft shows and I have been painting and embellishing everything in these colors, including both of these:

First is a set of stars, about 4 x 4 inches painted, sanded, varnished and then a little bit of paper added before my vinyl words.

Next is a set of JOY letters, about 12 inches tall, also painted, sanded and varnished then decorated. I added my Echo Park paper to the J by tracing and cutting it out then putting it on with a heavy layer of glue stick (one layer on the paper, one layer on the wood). I glittered up my O using tacky glue and some glitter.

I hope I passed a little of my holiday mood along to you-- we'd love to see what you are creating so hop on over to The Beary Scrap Design Team blog and enter your projects (more than one, if you want!) in our month long challenge for your chance to win a $30 voucher to The Beary Scrap store.
