Winter Wall Hanging

Happy New Year Crafty Friends!
Hope you all had a safe and joyous Christmas too! I'm back on the Clear Scraps blog with a Home Decor project you can display during the winter season. It's frigid here where I live. Winter is the perfect time to cuddle up with a hot cup of cocoa, and craft!
For this project I'll be using the Clear Scraps Square Medium Pallett Click here Winter Flake Shapes Click here and Chipboard Mittens Click here
To begin I took some Folkart White Wicker acrylic paint and applied the paint along the edges of each pallet section. Let dry.
Now chose any winter themed paper collection you have in your craft stash, I'm using Carta Bella Welcome Winter collection. I cut 2 of each from the same plaid coordinating papers measuring: 7 & 1/4 x 2 inches. The other coordinating Snowflake patterned paper I cut at 7 & 1/4 x 2 & 1/2 inches. I inked all my papers using Ranger Distress Ink "Gathered Twigs " and then adhered my papers to each pallet section using Beacon glue. Set aside for now.
Now remove your Winter words from the package. I applied some Versamark Clear ink to the surface of all letters. Then sprinkled some A-la Mode light blue embossing powder over the top. Shake off any excess embossing powder. Heat with your heat tool. I took and added some fake snow along the top edges of some of letters.
Now take the Snowflake Shape and apply some Folkart Cottage White acrylic paint on the front surface of your Snowflake. While still wet, I sprinkled some Crystal Snow glitter over the top. Shake off any excess glitter. Set aside to dry.
Next I took one of the Journaling cards and using a circle diecut, I diecut a sentiment and inked along the edges using Distress Ink faded jeans. Then I adhered the sentiment to the center of my Snowflake. I fussy cut out a cocoa mug from one of the ephemera pieces in this collection. I glued the mug at the bottom. I added some Dazzle Snowflake stickers on each Snowflake point and a few silver gems in each center of my Snowflake sticker! Here's a closeup!
Next take your chipboard Mittens and cut them apart from your frame. You can save your outside frame for future projects if you like. I covered both mitten surfaces with Versamark Clear ink and then sprinkled some Stampendous Winter Wonderland embossing powder over the top of both Mittens. Then heat your embossing powder using a heat tool. For the bottom portion of my Mittens, I applied the same ink and sprinkled some Blue Sparkle embossing powder over the top. Shake off any excess powder. Then heat with your heat tool.
I took some Gold sparklely twine and glued each end to the back of my chipboard Mittens. I applied some foam dots to the backside, before adhering along the bottom edge of my wood pallet. Here's a closeup!
Using foam dots, I adhered my Snowflake Shape at the upper left corner of my pallet. Then glued my Winter words in the center. I added a puffy sticker Snowflake on the dot above my letter "I". I also added a chipboard sentiment to the upper right. Here's a closeup!
To finish, I attached a metal hanger on the back! Now it's ready to display on your wall!
