Hello friends! We had a very mild autumn, but the weather has turned and this morning the snow was falling down really fast. All our winter gear is now out and we have been playing in the snow. It is a new thing for Leo, since he is too small to remember the snow from last year. He enjoys it a lot, with the exception of all the thick clothes he has to wear.
It is Monday and this week we have a Shine Bright Like a Diamond theme at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge. Since it is the first Monday of a new month the team is showcasing a specific designer/company, and this week it is Tim Holtz. Don't miss all the inspiration posted by the team. You don't have to use Tim Holtz products to join in, but it is always fun if you do. The SSS Monday blog also has a new fantastic look.
I love doing winter projects, and one of my favourte things is to create snow in different ways, so for this week I made a winter wonderland shadow box, filled with snow and some really cute inhabitants. It is very glittery and shiny and I will show you a bunch of different ways in which you can create the look of snow, and not only for 3-D projects. Let's start.
I used a Vignette Box House as my base and coated it in a couple of layers of white gesso.
From the top, the box looks like this. The deer are placed towards the front of the box, for the sake of creating a sense of perspective.
This little scene combined some of my favourite things: trees, houses, snow, shadow box, and making nature scenes. Since it isn't Christmas themed, it can be displayed all through winter.
I hope you will join us in our Shine like a Bright Diamond challenge. As every week, you have a chance to win a $50 gift voucher from Simon Says Stamp. You have until Monday 8am Ohio time. 1pm UK time, 2 pm CET to join in.
