Anything goes or Christmas at Polkadoodles

Good morning folks, we're getting ready for Christmas over at Polkadoodles where out theme is 'Anything Goes with an optional Christmas twist' . Of course we've got a fab prize for our lucky winner and lots of inspiration from my lovely teamies too! 

For my DT project this time I've made a shadow box using some of the papers from the fabulous new Festive Christmas collection (you can find it here on CD or as a download here)  and stamps from Red Red Robin and O Christmas Tree (you can find them here are there are some fab offers too!)

I began with an 8x8 canvas and created a snowy effect using coarse modelling paste, white acrylic paint and lots of glitter.

I created the scene by printing off the beautiful backing paper 3 times and cutting out layers of trees which I applied with silicone glue for some dimension.  I created the moon by applying some glitter and glue to the reverse of a glass cabochon and popping it in the sky, a little squidge round spreads the glitter nicely.

I added some stamped and embossed Christmas trees and some snowdrifts simply made from card that I glittered and added shaved ice. I stamped and coloured the robin and cut it out, leaving him stood on a snowdrift.

I added ribbon, bells and some wooden buttons that I painted with silver acrylic paint.

I'm entering this project in the following challenges:

A Snowflakes Promise: Anything goes/seasons

Deep Ocean: Anything goes
Incy Wincy: things that fly
