It's a White Christmas

It's our last challenge of the year at
and I had a lot of fun creating a 
Very Snowy Christmas Hanger.

 I bought the hanger last year - just didn't get to work on it.
I knew when I saw it, it was perfect for Mixed Media.

Let the fun begin! Gessoed with black and white.

Painted the outer circle with 
AA metallic rusty red and dark forest.
adding crackle paste to the inside circle
Lots of  'messy stuff'' going on here
adding crackle paste, glitter, art stones.
touched up back trees in green,
AA waxes, acrylic paint for snow capped trees and houses.
It needed a backing so cut out a circle
and smooched with Tim's ox inks and some
irridescent medium for shimmer.
and that finished off my
Christmas Wall Hanger.

Head over to our Blog to see what my
Talented Team Mates had fun creating.
Hope you get some 'you' time to create
a little mixed media something for us.
This is our last challenge for the year.

We take a break in January but
we will be back with more Mixed Media
for your pleasure in February.

Thank you for your kind comments throughout the year.

Wishing you all a Merry Christmas
and a Safe Happy and Healthy New Year.

I'm Guest Designer at Color Hues

 I am excited and honoured to be
the Guest Designer
for Challenge #54

Here is what I made
I started with my background inking the
Altenew Peony Bouquet flower several times
with Memento Paris Dusk onto cream card stock.
I then inked and layered up the peony flower and 
Altenew Beautiful Day leaves in the same ink.
The last layer of the flower is heat embossed with
sparkly candy blue embossing powder as is the small leaves.
Here is a close up you can see a little of the sparkle
Added some navy blue thread to the back
while putting my floral spray together.
Sentiment is from Happy Little Stampers and
cut from MFT circle die.
Framed in blue and attached to cream card base.
Isn't it just such a lovely combo?
You will want to head over to Color Hues Home
to see what  the Talented Design Team 
created for your inspiration 
and we all look forward to seeing yours in the Gallery.
You have till the 28th December.
See you there.

Thank you so much Color Hues for the pleasure of being
