Here are the prints I created as well as more pictures of the finished journal.
If you want to read more about how I used Hazel and Ruby’s masks with my gelli plate go over to the H&R blog.
Here are all of the prints I did before turning them into my gift wrap. I love gelli printing! Some of these only have 1-2 layers, but I think the more layers the better!

Here are photos of my pages. I used some fun photos that my Mom and I took recently.
Below you can see some of my pages. Since it’s not December, I obviously haven’t started adding photos or journaling yet but I did have fun pre-embellishing them.
To read more about how I put this album together head on over to the Hazel and Ruby blog. The blog hop between Hazel and Ruby and Fancy Pants runs all week so there is plenty of Christmas inspiration to be had! You’ll find projects from the other design team members on the HR blog.
I kind of messed up my quote, it should be “I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers” instead of “with”. Oh well, it’s not toooo big of a mistake.
I’m loving the fox trend, so I lightly sketched a fox onto my page with a pencil and then went over it with Imagine Crafts Irresistible Pico Embellisher in tuxedo black. I love using the Pico Embellishers for doodling. I also used it to write out my quote.
You can read more about the process of how my art journal page came together on the Hazel and Ruby blog.
Are you loving the fox trend? Foxes and Owls are my favorite!
Apply Hazel & Ruby stencils to clay pots. It’s a good idea to play around with the stencils to find a design you like. Also, in order to get the stencils evenly spaced around the pot, you may have to move them around and adjust them even after they are all stuck on. With the triangle/banner shapes, we moved the stencils multiple times just to get them even!
Outlining a stencil is a fun technique because you can get very precise shapes. It’s hard for me to freehand a design evenly, so by outlining the stencil (in my favorite color which is, of course, gold) I can have nice, evenly spaced triangles or other shapes that are exactly the same size.
Next, we filled in the stencil shapes with acrylic paint, going over the gold outlining again one more time once the paint was dry. I love the modern look that black, white, and gold gives on the clay pots.
