Hi Everyone, I am so pleased to be sharing my post today at Frilly and Funkie as their Guest Designer after winning their recent challenge A Vintage Holiday my Altered Frame which you will see HERE. Clicking to enlarge the photographs highlights all my glittered areas better. As you know glitter is so difficult to capture in photos.
With their current challenge - Winter Wishes I was asked to design something expressing what I love about winter. This was rather hard as I hate our cold wet winters in Scotland with long dark days. But I do like on the rare time when we wake up to everything glistening white and I love to feed the birds in the winter time especially my beloved Robin - Ronald.
Now gathered with inspiration I decided to make a wall hanging using a Canvas Board.
I first of all glued a Cheery Lynn Snowflake die all over my board.
I layered on some scraps of old music sheets and used Texture paste to add my Ivy. Once dry I placed my stencil back over my textured areas and started to add Distress Ink, building up colour. I also added in Pine Needles later on.
My little Robin's body was cut out 3 times in chipboard to make him more 3D. I added Distress paint to shade him and then used a flourish stamp and Archival ink to add shading. His eye was Black Liquid pearls.
My letters were also cut from Chipboard. I gave them a coat of Gesso. Once dry I added Glossy Accents and Rock Candy Distress Glitter, letting dry before adding some Distress Ink to the edges.
I added a selection of winter greenery die cuts, more snowflakes, glittered icicles, Flower Soft and lots of glitter to give a frosty feel.
Thanks to the Super Talented team over At Frilly and Funkie for asking me to Guest for them today and I hope you all enjoyed your visit to my blog today.
