Snow Scene Cloche

Sometimes it starts with an idea... like silver rich brush bottle trees.  OH YA IT DOES...

Do you remember the ghostly cloche... well I am repurposing the cloche for Christmas.  Why buy more when I can use it again by simply creating a removable base.


There's the empty cloche and a new cut out base.  Gather a bunch of trees and ink up some glittery paper for die cutting.


More inking and die cutting the Snowman Scene snowman then assemble this adorable snow stopping snowman.  I had some left over gold deers from last year so I snapped them up for a little added gold.


Here's the inspiration... this brushed pewter brush bottle trees.  Once dry brush some distress collage medium coating the trees and coat in distress glitter.


They look like flocked Canadian trees.  Too add more gold I inked up an adornment star with alcohol ink topped to the tree.


Mini Holiday Green cut and the little berry's in more gold.  I rolled up woodgrain paper to look like wee logs.  Then wrapped the base with mini lights topped with cotton for a fluffy snowy scene.


Take a closer look...


logs


ohhhh deer...



keep going


Feels like Banff to me...


I really love this all pulled together.  The little touch of gold is a great way to break up the silver and white.  All lite up it throws off a soft light through the snow.

Some holiday challenges to consider...

Journaling Tuck Spots and Pockets

It is official... I am addicted to Journaling.  This is an inspiration post... why?  I may have become lost in my creativity... it happens.
Scroll through the the photos for ideas.  I have been inspired by my fellow journalers too.  
I kept the cover of Eileen Hull's new Journalsimple with a flipped cabinet card and some crackle paste stenciling.

Inside there are pages of Memoranda paper and Idea-Ology from Scrap ShotzMarch Scrapbook Kit.

A mini book stuffed in a pocket too.

Nicole Wright Designs Fallen Blossomis used on the tag, stamped and watercolored with worn lipstick oxide ink.

I used pages from my 115 year old art journal to create another mini.  Stamping and watercoloring throughout each page with Garden Flower and my stamp set Fallen Blossom.

Tuck spots and pockets for stuffing notes.  

The March Kit with the new Memoranda paper is perfect on it's own.  But I still cut it up and collaged with it.

I fussy cut a found relative since I am still trying to get my hands on …

Grinch

I am so excited to share this Tutorial with you!  This is a tutorial on how to "draw" an image to scale!  How to take a small image and make it life size using a grid pattern.  I'm sure if you are on Pinterest like I am you've seen The Grinch stealing Christmas lights.  I looked for a tutorial on how to make my own but I couldn't find one.  Not to say someone hasn't created a tutorial.  So, I decided to create my own.  With the help of my husband who created the Grid pattern for me to make these characters come to life.  Much like he did for my daughter's Union Jack Headboard.  Keep in mind, this is NOT A COPY of The Grinch.  Before you consider purchasing the class...you will have to DRAW him yourself.  In this class you'll be shown how to grid a print out and grid your plywood so you can "DRAW BY NUMBER" if you will.  Even if you can't draw... you can draw the lines in each grid connecting them to the next grid.  I can draw but not s…

An Experiment... Hit RECORD!!!

OK, super funny maybe not funny story.  
I just got these Studio Style lights for filming.  I thought... Ohhh I'll make some pages in my Media Journal and test the lighting.  Meanwhile, you get a video out of the deal.  Ya... that would have been the best if I hit "record".  UGH...  a did this whole thing too with Scribble Sticks and Paint.

Check it out!  Ranger has Mixed Media Embossing Powders that I just got.  Ya, that was cool on video if I hot record.  There was all this stenciling and powders flowing!  Oscar nominated stuff.

Dylusion Paints and Dina Wakely has new washi tape so yep that went on too.  

See the face see, see!  That's the scribble stick awesomeness!  All this dipping in water, scribbling and blending with the Dynasty Brushes.   I was all like "ya this is cool"!  No proof it was me...

Check out the Mixed Media Embossing Powder.  All close up and everything.

Layers and layers of paint, stamping, stencils, tissue.

If only there was a video…
