Wishes & Mittens by Lynne Moncrieff


Let it be known, I absolutely love the Dinky Stencil Snowflake Background!  Last week I used it with clear embossing paste onto an Alterable Surface, for this week, I was keen to use the stencil with the beautiful Maimeri Iridescent Paste (which has been a favourite of mine for some time now, especially for Christmas/Winter artwork) onto batting.

This mitten is a no sew project but machine stitching would add a lovely quality to it.






Supplies


Batting (substitute with felt)
Extras:- Snowflake charm, white velvet ribbon*, guipure lace and pompom trim


*substitute Idea-ology Crinkle Ribbon or piece of felt



Instructions


Freehand cut two mitten shapes (or create a cardboard template), cutting the two pieces from batting or felt.

Onto one side of each shape, stencil Snowflake Background with Iridescent Paste. A palette knife and masking tape will make this task easier.






Create a hanging loop and insert to top of mitten before adhering the two shapes with Gel Medium. At this stage you could use a brayer, with a light hand to ensure good adhesive.   This project is ideal for using up pieces of scrap trims.


Stamp sentiment onto white velvet ribbon or a suitable substitute. Layer with trim and sew on a snowflake charm. Dab some Gesso onto the snowflake charm with your fingertip for a distressed appearance.






Finally layer trims onto the top edge of the mitten.







Until next time,


Lynne
