My project is a little shadow box, inspired by the lyrics to the Queen song 'A Winter's Tale' and also by the beautiful view of the wintery sky and frosty houses one morning before Christmas. I certainly had plenty of time to admire it as we had loads of snow and my bus to work was an hour late lol. The sky was the most gorgeous pale peachy, pinks and pastel blue with wispy clouds and a big white moon hanging in the sky. I created the sky with my brayer, masking the moon and making the clouds with versamark and clear EP. I stamped a couple of little birds on the sky too.
I painted the inside and outside edges of the frame with gold acrylic paint and made a frame with an assortment of distress inks and a crackle stamp embossed with sparkly white EP.
The houses and trees are stamps from Elusive Images, coloured with promarkers and glittered with Judikins prisma glitter before being cut out and attached to the frame so that they are overhanging the edges.
The flowers are made from printed copier paper, layered up with dew drops in the centre, The feathers are from my stash and have been lightly sprayed with glimmer mists. The flourishes are cut with a marianne die and glittered with white glitter.
