Tutorial
Where I live, we get WINTER, snow & cold. Our days are short, & I spend much more time inside our home, so I do more Scrapbooking, in the winter months, to pass the winter away. I love to work on winter LO's because of the Snow Texture. You may find my tuts confusing, because I do them in the order that I have taken the photos. I have so much on the go, when I am working on a project, plus I have to allow pieces to dry. I do not use a heat gun, I let the pieces dry naturally, either in my front south window, when the sun is out, or my bedroom closest, the smallest warmest room in our home. It has a floor heater, so a placed a rack over top it, & will place pieces of the projects, on that to allow quicker drying.....
I trimmed the outside edges of the 6th of December sheet, (about 1/8 of a inch),distressed the edges & glued it onto the 8th of December sheet.. I then hand stitched these pieces together...

I did some stencil work using Tim Holtz snowflake stencil & Dreamweaver Translucent Embossing Paste

Shows stencil work...

Once the embossing paste dried, I brushed on some Nuvo Crystal Glitter Drops-Blizzard, I love the Translucent paste, you don't loose the detail in the paper...

I cut out these 2 pieces from the Dec 8th sheet, did some punch work using Martha Stewart Cherish punch, glued on the Dec 6th sheet, hand stitched & distressed the edges....


I primed all the chipboard with clear gesso...I do this to make sure the crackle sticks to the chipboard...

I then pained these pieces with Shimmerz Inklings Chocolate & Diamonds..

Applied drops of  liquid pearls-Robins Egg

I painted these pieces with DA paint Oceania, then clear gesso...

I then applied a thick coat of clear crackle

& placed the Ornate Pendants over top the wet crackle

Dry & completed Chipboard pieces...

Primed with clear gesso, then painted with Inklings Chocolate & Diamonds



Primed with clear gesso

Painted with Inklings Chocolate & Diamonds


Primed with clear gesso, applied a thick coat of the clear crackle, then once the crackle dried I painted the Winged Frame with the Inklings Chocolate & Diamonds 

I applied 2 coats of clear gesso, to seal the color, so it does not bleed through the snow texture....



I did the same to the frame, as I did with the Ornate Pendants...



Glued the Photo under the frame...

Glued on the pearl dangles & Tim Holtz icicle


Using a brush I applied Prima Snowflake paste, sprinkling on Prima glass glitter while the paste was still wet. I do not like the snowflake paste by its self, it comes to life with the glitter....

Painted with the DA Oceania
Applied clear crackle

Once the crackle dried, I painted these pieces, with the Robins Egg, Liquid Pearls...

I painted the flowers with LuminArt H20 Heavenly White, to give them shimmer. I also glued on some of the glass glitter on to the flower centers...

I changed the flower centers on all the canvas, burlap blooms, using Prills Sage Advice. I then applied snow texture & glass glitter to the outside edges of all the flowers....


I glued down the Marrakesh Trellis...

Placed drops of glue, I use Ranger Glossy Accents, it dries fast & holds...
Sprinkled on some glass glitter...

Glued on the beaded tinsel...& the top part of the LO...

Glued on Bottom part of LO & Snow flakes... I primed the snowflakes with white gesso, then painted them with the clear crackle, & once the crackle dried I painted them with the LuminArt, heavenly white for the shimmer...

Started this cluster using 49 and Market Rustic Pointsettia Canvas Blooms, Garden Blooms, Petaloo Berry Picks & pinecones. I picked the small pine cones, cut off the bottoms to make them smaller, then sprayed them with a acrylic sealer. I also applied the snow texture & glass glitter on to the pine cones...

I painted on another coat of the Inklings Chocolate & Diamonds on the frame, for the Shimmer & Started a cluster here...
