Snow Princess

You can click on the picture to view closer, if needed.

Good Morning everyone. I did this lo lastnight using my SwirlyDoo's kit, I already have my Febuary one but wanted to play with my January one before the month was up. I was so inspired by Sheila's Gypsy cut that I made one similar of course mine is no where as fancy and pretty. What I did was while I was at the bus stop waiting to pick the boys up using the Gypsy was use George and Home Accents and welded the circle and the swirl. Then I cut one out with the whole circle in the center, then the top one with the circle cut out. Sheila was using a sketch by Liz Qualman. Sheilas lo is gorgeous, check it out.

The title was from Hello Kitty and the snowflake is from Accents Essentials all welded together. Princess is cut from Gypsy Font, welded. I layered the snowflake four times using thin popdots. The purple paper is some more of the handmade paper me and the boys made from scraps. The pp is Bo Bunny Snowy it!!! The file tab is also Bo Bunny. The while cardstock is Bazzill Basics. The turquoise cardstock is SU.

The white flower from the SwirlyDoos kit is from Prima, which I sprayed with Haunted Shadow Tattered Angels Glimmer mist. The put the stamens in and some ice stickles and Diamond Glaze. The flowers are Bo Bunny and Prima. The snowflake chipboard is also in the kit. I painted it white and then sprinkled on MS ultrafine glitter while wet. The rub on in the pic is KaiserCraft white flourish corner. The snow word was stamped using Autumn leaves swirls using white pigmant ink and crystal sparkle embossing powder, then stamped using SU lavender lace. The screen was from Tattered Angels Vintage Ice. The pic is of my dear granddaughter Abigail, pic taken Dec. 17, 2009 while she was looking at the Christmas Tree, she is wearing this cute little dress I bought from Target after Halloween, that is called Snow Princess costume...Abigail loves it!! She would say Grandma I put my dress on again....too cute!! TFL!! Have a WONDERFUL Day. Dawn :o)

GROW Altered Wall Hanging

Hello all, I hope this Monday has been a beautiful day for you and yours. I have been wanting to post this for about two weeks now. It is an altered wall hanging using a canvas turned around backwards like a shadow box. I painted the inside and the frame using acrylic paints. Then I added Webster's pp Nature's StoryBook:Grow Dreams. Using Tattered Angels glimmer mist sprayed on pp using the dragonfly screen and the tree screen. The grow letters are Rusty Pickle...I tore the cardboard off and used Tim Holtz crackle paints and applied a thin coat to them, and some ink. The lace around the frame is Prima Elegant Lace. The bumble bee, the dragonfly and two flowers on the alphas are SpellBinder's using the Wizard die cutting system, the dragonfly has a coat of Alcohol inks, the bumble bee is cut from Cosmo Cricket pp and inked. The blue flower is cut from handmade paper that me and the boys made one day..what a blast and they still will bring it up whenever I use it in a project. The pot is made using a crackle paint chip from the hardware store, using the SpellBinder's diecut.

The flowers on the outside of the frame are made using the SpellBinder's Sunflower die cut I cut the flower out then folded it into 1/8ths using the Tim Holtz tiny attacher (love this) stapled it on one side then attached to the homemade floral wire (I used to teach flower arranging for our local community college many many years ago) Yes I still have all my stuff....I know I get fussed at, about it all the time. Sprayed with Tattered Angels glimmer mist and wallah.....a flower vine. The leaves are SpellBinder's too. TFL!!! Thanks and Have a WONDERFUL afternoon. Dawn
