First I had this lovely snowman to use. I painted him up with acrylics & then added glitter & GA to lift him a bit. Then I wondered what to do with him...mmmm haha!!! I found an old photograph of my daughter when she was around 12 with her step-siblings. They had made a wonderful snowman & were very proud as it was their first (we don't get much snow down here). The background was dry brushed with acrylic then spritzed with silver Glimmer Mists. The large snowflake came from a market somewhere & was already glittered. The snowflakes on top where from a kit from BubblyFunk...tho I changed the colour of the bigger one. I also added snowflake sequins. The whole layout is actually quite sparkly irl.
Then I had a play with a lovely stocking which came in 2 parts. Its around 5inches long.This was a joy to use as its a fair size so very versatile. I covered it with some gorgeous glittery papers from My Minds Eye & then added stickles. The teensy pom-poms were a lucky find somewhere!
I then added the stocking to this....
I really loved doing this one...can you tell??? I covered the mountboard from the same paper range & added the stickles. The chippie snowflakes were painted blue & stickled. The letters are grungeboard which were painted the same blue & GA added. The bells were a brilliant buy in a sale in a DIY store last January...I knew I had to have them. Its worth checking out these places after Christmas.
TANDO have some really unusual chipboard...its so worth taking a look to find their stockists. You can see a link on the right which takes you to their blog. Later I will show you some fantastic beer pumps I had to play with....yes.....BEER PUMPS!!!!! Thank you so much for looking today....HUGS XXX
