Hi there, I hope you are having a nice relaxing Boxing Day. I'm having a very lazy day but before I go and do some serious lazing, I wanted to share this project with you. I was chuffed to bits to be invited to be a Guest Designer for Decorate to Celebrate, what an honour! A big thank you to Amy and her lovely team for inviting me to join them. The challenge the theme is 'New Year/Winter Party', how exciting!! Do pop over to the Challenge blog to find out all about this fab challenge.
Now what could be more exciting than a Winter Party, my thoughts turned immediately to icy decorations, beautiful party frocks, some Christma decorations and children ready for bed but too excited to sleep. I set too altering a little house shaped thimble display unit to create a Party Scene. I won't go in to lots of detail as it took ages and I had loads of fun making it. Here are a couple more pics:
Can you see the little mouse flat on his back behind the lady? He's polished off a bottle of wine and is feeling a bit worse for weat lol, the bottle and glasses are hidden in the shadow.
In the pic below you can see the little children and the mouse watching from outside by the streetlamp.
Here's a list of some of the supplies I used:
Stamps from Crafty Individuals, Chocolate Baroque and Joanna Sheen
Acrylic Paint, distress inks, promarkers, glimmer chips, pale blue gingham ribbon, a broken pearl necklace, Marianne die cut icicle border, sparkly beads, stickers , tiny gold baubles and little gold bells, and lastly lots of faux snow made using rock candy glitter, clear holographic glitter, shaved ice, tiny clear stars and a little silver glitter - sprinkled all over (the dogs and I were sparkly for days when I finished lol)
I'm entering this in the following challenges:
