I cut the bottom from mat board and covered it with Graphic 45's cardstock from the Gilded Lily collection. I know it isn't really Christmasy but I wanted more of a wintery/snowman feel for my project since my house is decorated more in those colors. Plus I thought the little girl with the tree was prefect because I can keep this out and enjoy it in the winter months ahead.
The snowman I made from a 1" and 1 1/2" SmoothFoam balls. I gessoed and painted with an off white paint and once dry I put together and applied Antique Mod Podge and covered with glitter. I had baked "carrot noses" from Sculpey clay according to directions on the package. I adhered the nose and two dew drops to the snowman and added more glitter to the face. The "arms" are cut from wire which I rolled to make hands and then inserted on either side of the body and then added a little glue to secure.
The silver snowflake is an ornament that I had bought in a package of snowflakes and this one was deformed so instead of tossing it I decided to use as a back ground of sorts.
I worked tulle in and around the decorations and edges the ends with the gesso and glitter.
Thanks for stopping by, hope your Tuesday is awesome and enjoy creating!
