A Winter's Day

Good Morning,

What a lovely surprise to hear that Pion Design have brought out another Winter collection and you all know how much I like my christmas projects.  This week at LLC the theme is "favourite ocassion" so my project today will come as no surprise to Sandy, lol and of course my papers arrived this week from Pion Design so I have used the new beautiful "Glistening Season" collection.

Here is the collection

UPDATE... the papers have now arrived at LLC.  Click HERE to go see

I don't think these papers have hit the store yet, but it won't be long so take a note of the papers used at the bottom of the post.

I have used the NEW Dutch Doobadoo Winter MDF.  

I have tied rusty bells with vax cord around their necks and added bows using seam binding with little snowflake centres.

I added cones, star anaise, cinamon ticks tied with vax cord and two cone charms.  The base is covered with structure paste.  It gives a good snow effect with stiff peaks.

Hope your all having a good weekend.  I seem to be having a really bad day and am still struggling to come to terms with not seeing Ollie again and how it all happened so quick and then I got a heartfelt message from my son this morning, who hasn't been able to speak about it and has yet to come home from Uni to face that the little wagging tail and his sleep buddy isn't here any more. I'm off to my sisters for dinner tonight so I hope my day gets better.

I have a couple of projects to share with you today... Firstly I have used the Dutch Doobadoo MDF Houses, Autumn paper pad, Rough Textures paper pad and the purple is from the Happy Holidays Christmas pad.  As usual all links at the end of the post.

I add dutch doobadoo softwood bricks to areas on the houses and painted with black gesso.  I also added softwood tiles on the roofs and again painted with black gesso.

The spiders and webs are from the A5 paper art Spider

I cut a ghost using the new mask art ghost as a guide.  These have arrived and stocks will be going on today but in the meantime you can order whilst stock says zero.

I have used the new arrival trailing leaves die and coloured with distress inks.

Here's my treat box that I made for this month's challenge Halloween/Autumn. So easy to do.  

Here's the back of the treat box.  I used the new ghost mask.  I used structure paste and added a little black gesso and hey presto.

Hope you like my projects.

Have a fun weekend whatever you are up to :)
