Hello my friends. So at work it was decided to have a secret Santa. I always dread what name I'm going to pull out as some people can be difficult to buy for.
So I decided that I was going to make something myself and out came the wooden snowflakes.
I gessoed it back and front and once dry out came the fresco finish paints by Paperartsy. I used lake Wanaka, space cadet and ice blue. i again used them back and front.
Once dry I painted it with crackle paint all over and left to dry naturally. I then went all over with Faber castell glass glitter and bead gel.
I wrapped some micro LED lights all around and then started to embellish it. I die cut a large snowflake by Memory box and 3 smaller Tim Holtz sizzix thinlets. Before I die cut the smaller ones I added double sided tape to card. I covered these in iced snow and diamond sprinkles from Cosmic shimmer.
I added some floristry fibres to base and then piled up the snowflakes on top and finished with a gem.
Then I added other embellishments such as berries, bits of glittered pine needles.
Finally I added some other gems and sequins and ribbon for hanging the ornament.
My son saw it and asked me to make him one for a friend of his to give as a present. So I made a second one.
So now I have too wait till next week to find out if my secret Santa will be well received. My son's friend loved hers so at least that is 1 out of 2.
I would like to enter these snowflakes in the following challenges:
