Pretty Little Studio: Let It Snow

Saturday, October 24, 2020

Welcome to the weekend, y'all!  Just stopping in to share my most recent, papercraft project, which happened to have been up on the Pretty Little Studio blog earlier this week.  Enjoy!

I started this page by adding puddles of blue and pink watercolors to the 12" x 12" watercolor paper, background page.  I then splattered it with those same colors before stamping a couple of different sizes of snowflakes, from the Glitter & Ice: Be Merry Clear Stamp set, in Bashful Blue and Jet Black inks, throughout the design.  I then splattered everything once again but this time with Pure Black and Titanium White, acrylic paints.  Once everything was dry, I hand-cut the pennants from the Wonderland: Warm Scarf 8" square print and anchored them, in the way you see above and covering the right half of my page, with silver-threaded, straight, machine stitching.  My photos, as well as the bottom, "at home chilling out" portion of a Wonderland: Chill Out Journaling Card, were then framed with Wonderland: Flurries Die-Cut Frames and positioned in a cluster just below the vertical center of the page.  The bottom portion of the Wonderland: Chill Out Journaling Card was also topped with a Winter Joy: Snow & Hot Cocoa Die-Cut "blessed"...

and its top portion was hand-cut out into three, individual houses, grouped to either side of the photo cluster.  The right-side grouping also includes a Glitter & Ice: Fir Tree Die Cut, as well as a Tinsel Town: Noel Frames + Extra Die Cut and that adorable Dot #2 Vintage Die Cut.  The latter two were popped up with foam tape for added interest and dimension.

The left-side grouping, additionally, includes a Glitter & Ice: Fir Tree Die Cut and two Tinsel Town: Noel Frames + Extra Die Cuts, the latter of which were popped up with foam tape, layered over Christmas Joy: Joy Die-Cut and Glitter & Ice: Silver Lining Die-Cut tags, both of which were laced with white string, tied in bows.

A couple of Glitter & Ice: Oh What Fun phrase stickers and the "Let It Snow", Wonderland: Winter Mini Word title, popped up with foam tape, not to mention a sweet, little, Home for Christmas: Happy Memories Die-Cut cardinal, crown my design.

A trio of Home for Christmas: Vellum Snowflake Die Cuts, as well as a duo of Winter Joy: Snow & Hot Cocoa Die Cuts, popped up with foam tape, and a little journaling, complete the look.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a wonderful weekend, friends!
