It's Snow Time by Lynne Moncrieff


With Halloween now past, my thoughts are definitely turning towards Christmas, I cannot begin to tell you how far behind I am with my preparations!

Recently I shared with you the first of my winter/Christmas themed projects and today I am sharing another.


Tim Holtz Idea-ology Adage Tickets (this torn end was lying on my work area so decided to incorporate it!)
Extras:- Buff shipping tag (substitute with manilla tag), ticking fabric, vintage lace, vintage doily, jingle bell, baker’s twine (I used thick baker/butcher twine but substitute with craft twine), corrugated cardboard and Kraft* style paper sourced by re-cycling cardboard box and a fragment of burlap. 



Tear panel from corrugated cardboard and apply Gesso. Adhere Cosmic Shimmer Vintage Mica Flakes, I use Gel Medium as my adhesive of choice. Tear a piece of ticking fabric, pleat the length and adhere to the bottom edge of the panel. Tear another length and form into a bow. Create two holes at the top of the panel and thread baker/butcher twine. Attach a jingle bell with jump rings.

Dry brush Gesso onto tag, abrade edges and sponge Distress Ink. Now stamp the boys on sledge directly onto the tag. Onto Kraft style paper* stamp stars, cut out, ink and adhere to the tag then adhere the tag to the panel. Stamp the wee bird, fussy cut and adhere to tag along with a length of vintage lace. Stamp label and calendar page and layer with burlap fragment and torn edge of an Adage Ticket which I distressed. Adhere to panel.

Stamp On The Naughty List onto found paper, edge with Distress Ink and adhere above the tag.


Cut piece from large vintage doily and adhere to the panel. Gather a Prima Natural Bark Icon and edge with Cosmic Shimmer Vintage Mica Flakes. Stamp a star and layer onto a Prima Natural Bark Icon Star. Adhere all to the bark circle. Rip a piece of ticking and tuck beneath the bark. Adhere to the vintage doily. 

Until next week.
