We woke up to a fresh layer of snow on the roof tops and ground here in southern MN today. We had one small snowfall in November, but it had since melted. This one was a light one too...I'm ready for us to live up to our "Minne-snow-ta" nickname. Bring on the snow!!
I love everything about the Christmas holiday, especially the creative things that can be made. There are so many possibilities for Christmas and winter that there is never enough time to make everything!
So here is my first holiday project of the season...
I just love this little angel all decked out in her BasicGrey gown. She is made from Maya Road Chipboard pieces. I used one of the "People Chipboard Album- Girl" pages and her wings are from the Snowflake Set. I painted them white and sparkled them all up with Mica Flakes and rhinestones.
Her dress has details of crocheted lace that I hand stitched on and the glitter line was made easily using Glue Arts "Adhesives Lines". You just cut to your desired length, rub it on, remove the protective plastic strip, sprinkle on the glitter and you have a perfect line of sparkle. Check out the Glue Arts Blog for a complete list of supplies and instructions.
The resin star is from Melissa Frances and the silver wreath is made from a couple of pipe cleaners that are wound together.
The base is made from a wood 2x4-- it's about 6" tall. I added a wood knob to the top of the wood block and topped it with a Melissa Frances rhinestone and some more silver pipe cleaner.
She makes me smile! Thanks to my dad too for his help in all of the wood projects that I do. He helped me with THESE skates last year. And then a long long time ago, we made these together...
Please email me, Katherine and I will be sending you some of the product that I used to create my fall projects and a few of those felt flowers that I made.
Thanks to everyone for commenting and stopping by for a visit to my blog! The free pattern/template that I am working on is still in progress so I will share that with you all next time. Be back soon!
