Winter home

Hi everyone,

The winter is coming fast and so is Christmas! It's already December, and I just can't believe that Christmas is only a few weeks away. This week's challenge at Simon Says Stamp and Show is House Rules. At this time of year, I can only think of Christmas and so I made in my artjournal a snowy landscape with a sweet little house that represents my cozy home with christmas.



First I've covered the pages with the super beautiful new Tissue Wrap. I liked it already a lot just the way it was, that I found it very difficult to whitewash it with some watered gesso. Of course I did it anyway, because otherwise it wouldn't become Christmassy. To create some texture I've used some modeling paste and stencil Dyan Reavely and made some snowflakes. This was the first time I've worked with modeling paste. Really cool stuff, very easy to work with, much easier than I thought!



The little hose is made from old scraps that I've had saved. At the bottom of the pages I put some lave, which represents a little coat of snow.





To join in all you need to do is make a project that fits this weeks challenge and you can be the winner of the $50 gift voucher that our amazing sponsor Simon Says Stamp offers. This prize will go to a random entry. So go over to the Stamp and Show Challenge blog, let the DT members inspire you and join in the fun!

Thank you for stopping by! Love to see you next time!

Hugs,
Sandra

  2. Its lovely - I love using modelling paste and cant get enough of it at the moment, also Paperartsy did a demo at the NEC where Leandra used texture paste mixed together with puff paint and heated it - even more fabulous!
