Let it Snow Christmas Tag

Standard

Hey there Peeps. Well we’re all counting down the days till Christmas and maybe sneaking in a few last minute crafty projects. Today I’m sharing a fun and festive tag with the great chippies from GSL and many mixed media supplies.

 

These chipboard pieces are from the Winter Shapes Set and were so much fun to alter. I’ve layered them with tinsel trim, die cut doily, ribbon, and dimensional flowers.

 

I finished the words in this sentiment with different mediums and added a bit of faux-snow and glitter glue.

I’ve added foam spacers between the layers which gave me room to tuck some of the flowers behind.

1. Choose chippies and clean edges to prepare the surface for finishing. 2. Base coat with flat white acrylic paint….add two coats if necessary. 3. Paint the snow part of the sentiment with red paint and stamp on a texture using archival ink. You will have to mask off the parts that contact the painted red sections.  4. The hat was given a coat of  black embossing powder and heat set to give a glossy finish. The small scarf is striped with the paints, markers, and permanent ink pens. Add glitter glue to the snowflakes and allow to dry before adding the faux-snow.

Using a permanent marker add green to the sentiment.  A layer of glitter glue on the scarf adds a festive sparkle.

Adding a sweet face gives the snowman a little personality…I did this with Spectrum Noir markers and a Signo white gel pen.

Whishing all of you a happy and productive day with lots of time to be creative : ) G
