Anyway, the challenge this week is Winter Wonderland. Now, I should've used this an excuse to start on next years Christmas cards, but I'm soooo fed up of Christmas cards at the moment that I just couldn't face making one. So I thought I'd use it as an excuse to make a Christmas Ornament - how I wish I hadn't!!!! The whole project has been a complete nightmare from start to finish. However, I think the main problem has been that I didn't allow myself enough time and so became impatient and you know what happens then! With hindsight I could've made a winter Birthday card, but you know me why make life easy for myself when I can complicate things!!!
Anyhow, here's my project - what do you think??? There are a couple of things I'd do differently next time, but on the whole I think I'm fairly pleased with it!
I took an old sardine can and flattened the edges with pliers to reduce the risk of injury to myself or others. I then coated the outside in a layer of texture paste. Whilst waiting for it to dry, I printed out the background image, cut it to size and glittered it up. Once the outside was dry I placed the image inside the tin and then added more texture paste. The Robin and Holly images were coloured with Promarkers and Prismacolor Pencils before being fancy cut and mounted onto the tin. Unfortunately, the camera hasn't picked up all the sparkle on this project, but I think you can just about see it on the picture below.
Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you all have a fab weekend.
