Morning to all! Did everyone survive? LOL!! I'm thankful for all of that good food but good gosh....I hate that feeling after I've stuffed myself with a whole plate and half full plus dessert. I'm glad it only comes around once a year!!
Today is the last day of me sharing some Christmas inspiration and I've got the cutest, sweetest little snow woman to share with you! I bought the paper mache snowman from Hobby Lobby a couple of years ago. The first thing I did was use some brown acrylic paint and painted around all of the edges. Once again, I brought out my Crate Paper Peppermint collection to make her pretty! It really was very easy to make her snow and clothing.....just a lot of tracing and cutting. Plus adding some Modge Podge matt finish to make sure this little gal is gonna hold up through the years.
For her scraf, I used this ribbon trim that I bought at Walmart last year. I really hope they have some more because I'm finding a lot of great uses for it!
For her nose, I took a small piece of orange pop pom trim, folded it in half, and then glued it on. The eyes are Kaisercraft black gems and her mouth is a small piece cut off of a Prima Say It In Crystals. Eyelashes were just drawn in with a pen.
This part of her hat was a little more difficult....well, not difficult just a little more time consuming. The bottom layer of the "flower" was made from one of the new EK Success. I used the punch on a strip of 1 1/2" x 12" pattern paper. Scored and fan folded the same way you do for a fan flower. Second layer was made the same way except I used a different border punch. The snowflake is a Maya Road chipboard snowflake which I painted white and then added some Stickles. Glue all of those layers together with either a glue gun or I like to use Beacon's 3-in-1. And she's all done! What d'ya think of her?
I really hope I've inspired this week! If anyone has been, I'd LOVE to see what you've made!! Be sure to post a link!
It's about time that I receive my December Burlap and Buttercups kit.....I CAN'T wait!! There's gonna be a great new addition to the Burlap and Buttercup site and I know it's going to be a great success! I'm one of the lucky ones that gets to have a hand in announcing this new addition and I'm so excited!
