Winter Wonderland

Good Morning

Today I would like to share with you one of favourite projects from the retreat. 

This started life as a canvas, however we turned it back to front and made it into a frame. The edges were painted with white paint as was the inside inch or so of the canvas. 

Around the frame we then stuck watered down PVA glue and then scrunched up tissue paper. The we added a little more PVA and sprinkled Galmour Dust and some Shabby Blue frantage embossing enamel to give a little bling.

The papers are from the Echo Park, Winter Wishes range and are great for Christmas or any wintery birthdays. We cut a piece to fit just inside the frame and then cut two 'hills' from Bazzill card stock. ON the hills we dry brushed using white acrylic paint to give the snowy look.

The little houses are from Tando Creative. These were covered in the matching papers from the range and then attached to the project. 
The fence was a die cut, and the santa and sleigh were chipboard die cuts which were coloured with Charcoal ink and then given the glamour dust treatment. Although they dont show up very well on the photo I have cut put 6 trees from a coordinating paper and added them to the hills. We then die cut various snowflakes and glittered them before placing onto the frame.

Thanks for stopping by. 
I appreciate all comments you may have on my creations.
