~ Snow Day ~

G’day everyone, I am so excited…. Today I get  to share with you my very first project for Scottie Crafts.  I received my kit earlier this week and couldn’t wait to get started.  At first I was a little daunted by the papers I received, not my usual style, but it is always good to be pushed out of our comfort zones and I really do love a good challenge.  I am more than happy with how this layout turned out.

I began by distressing the edges of the paper with just a pair of scissors and adding a few rips and tears.

I inked the the tears with some Tim Holtz Distress Stain - Walnut Ink

Using the Kaisercraft Chickenwire Acrylic stamp...I added some background to the black cardstock
I layered the bark paper so that the stamping peeked out from under the rips and tears
I then lightly spritzed the Basecoat Bark with some blue glimmer spray and added a few splatters to tie in with the snow theme.

After matting my photo on some more black cardstock, I began the layering process. I added a paper doily from my stash and a rubon from the Tim Holtz Idea-ology - Elements.

Then I had some fun with all the yummy goodies that came in my kit to create my flower cluster

 The products I have used include:

To create the little kraft emebellishments I used the rubon's and one of the Cream Shipping Tags that were included in my pack.  I inked them quite darkly.  First with some Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pad - Tea Dye and then Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pad - Walnut Stain  The leaves were cut from the Tim Holtz Idealogy Rubons - Elements packaging.

  Hope you are all having a wonderful weekend...
