Hi everyone! Heather here. We recently moved to a new house, and I wanted to commemorate the first snowfall at the our new place. It rarely snows in Louisiana, but it snowed twice last winter. I used the House DIY Pallet Shape from Clear Scraps as the base for this project. I painted the entire shape white, and once it was dry I used blue and green mist to add color in a diagonal line across the project.
Next, I decided to paint the Home Chipboard Word Title with Brown Sugar acrylic paint from Jenny Bowlin. It took two coats to be happy with the coverage. I let it dry completely between coats.
I knew that I was going for a snowy theme with less traditional color choices, so I decided to cut a few snowflakes on my Circuit to add to the wintery feeling. The snowflake files I used are from Miss Kate’s Cuttables.
I cut and adhered the papers from Glitz Design’s Dapper Dan collection in the following order: The woodgrain paper is 5.5x12 inches, the multicolored arrow paper is an embellishment piece from the Dapper Dan line’s “Bits and Pieces”, the blue paper measures 3.25x8.25 inches, and the green paper is 4.5x12 inches. I inked all of the edges before I glued them down with adhesive.
I matted two square 4x4 inch photos, and one 3.25x4 inch picture to remember our snowy adventures, and I decided to tuck a scalloped border strip measuring 1.5x12 inches behind the photo mat to add more interest.
Last but not least, I added my die cut snowflakes and the chipboard home title. I sprinkled some Winter Sequins from Clear Scraps across the project to add to the snowy feel, and I used a few stickers to expand on my title.
Here's a look at the final project!
