Snowflake by Lynne Moncrieff


This is my final D.T. for the year 2017, I’m convinced this year has passed quicker than any before. 

I decided to share a winter themed project for this week, featuring one of the greyboard snowflakes.



That’s Crafty! Multi-Surface Paints Ice Blue, Antique Gold, Antique Silver
Extras: Scrap Found Paper, Scraps of Vintage Lace, Tulle, Re-cycled Silk Sari Ribbon, Gem, Glass Glitter, Willow Circle


Randomly apply Gesso, with foam brush, to willow circle then, applying with fingertips, Antique Gold and Antique Silver, focusing around edge. 

Apply Ice Blue and Antique Silver to a snowflake. While the paint is wet, sprinkle on glass glitter, leave to dry before adhering gem to centre. 

Stamp quote onto found paper which has been randomly painted with Gesso, edge with glass glitter.

Before layering this piece to willow circle, gently create folds in the paper. Layer to willow circle with scraps of vintage lace and tulle. Adhere snowflake to upper corner, trapping two pieces of re-cycled silk sari ribbon behind the snowflake, giving the impression of movement.

Final touches of more glass glitter to edge of willow circle.

A hole could be drilled at the top, allowing to be suspended from wire/thread or the ornament could be propped onto a craft style easel. 

This is my final project for 2017, a year which has passed by too quickly. If you are celebrating the festivities, then I hope it is a time which is kind to you and yours.

Thank You for all the lovely comments and support this past year, it is greatly appreciated by me.
