Anything Mixed Media/Creative Goes at We Love 2 Create

Good morning my lovelies, I've been a bit quiet of the blogging front recently with the chaos of getting ready for Christmas and work too I haven't had a minute to post for ages but here I am with my second post of the day lol. Its our new challenge over at We Love 2 Create and as always out theme is 'Anything Creative/Mixed Media Goes'. You don't have to use our products to enter but we love it when you do! Our lucky winner will receive some gorgeous crafty goodies from Premium Craft Brands!

I've altered this MDF word to create a little Winter Wonderland scene, I didn't have a lot of time but PanPastels are fabulous to create a very quick background. I'd already created a crackle background on the MDF using acrylic paints but I set to and made a bit of a forest background on some card (cut to shape using a dinner plate lol) .  I stamped the trees with Versamark ink and used shades of Phthalo Blue PanPastel to shade the trees.I blended the excess out to create the sky but forgot to mask the moon, doh! Not a problem with Pans though as they are erasable so I used a circle die and a pencil eraser to create my moon. I added some falling snow with a White Graph'It Shake pen before attaching to the back of the MDF. Next I cut out three snowdrifts from white card, smothered them with texture paste and brushed over Course White Pearl Medium, it gives a beautiful frosty sparkle!

 I layered up the snowdrifts with silicone glue and popped my little image (My Friend Flakey from Sugar Nellie) coloured with Graph'It Markers) behind the 'O'. I created some snow on the word itself and along the front by applying texture paste and again dusting with White Coarse and Fine PanPastel Medium

Here's  a pic from above, you can see I made some little support for the image with scraps of white card.

I'm entering this project in the following challenges:
Crafty Hazelnut's: anything Christmas
