Winter Blues

As we enter the snowiest season in Nova Scotia I found this photo from Christmas 2015. It was taken in the moment and I never thought of it again until I was scanning through my photo files. It makes me want to breathe and exhale.

I decided to participate in a few challenges with the photo this month.

Challenge 1:  The first challenge is with Dusty Attic. I love their chipboard products which I used on my layout. I used the following products:  Corner Flourish # 4, String Frames and  Word Pack #10. The other part of their challenge was to use blue and/or to follow the sketch...I did it all!

Challenge 2: Is with Scrap Our Stash This is a fun blog that gives you options with a Tic-Tac-Toe game.

I choose to use the following to play along: The Color Blue, Winter Theme and Paint/Mist

Products used: Pattern papers from the following lines; Carta Belle The Great Outdoors, Echo Park Jack & Jill line; Some scraps from my left over bin; Bo Bunny Double Dot Dark Demin; The spray was Faded Jeans Distress Spray; I used a lot of multi medium on this page with gesso, white paste, stencils from Tim Holtz & Memory Box; Also add stitches with sewing machine; White UTEE on the snowflakes that were cuts from dies; Microbeads; stamping with Tim Holtz stamp. Finishing touches with sequences and brads.
