Hi everybody! Happy Tuesday morning to you! We are still under a blanket of white from our snow last weekend, and for the second day in a row, schools are closed in our county. Right now, the skies are “spitting” at us with a light rain that is supposed to turn into freezing rain as the day continues. And we have yet more snow predicted for this weekend. Looks like we are truly getting to experience a Winter Wonderland here in North Carolina.
My two kiddos and I took full advantage of the snowy fun yesterday with a snowball fight, jumping on the trampoline all covered in snow, and a bit of sledding down our back embankment. Nik and I even built a sweet little snowman…….snowgirl……….er……..snowperson. Not quite sure what it is.
Don’t you just love the hat? That’s a handmade bicycle helmet Nik made for her teddy bear awhile back, decoupage style. Looks rather sporty, don’t ya think?
In scrappy news, I am very excited to tell you all about a partnership between Webster’s Pages and Tattered Angels for the month of February. Each day this month, the Webster’s Pages design team will be bringing you fabulous projects pairing products from both companies. Be sure to check out the special section here in the inspireME forum every day and prepare to be blown away. And take a peek at the Tattered Angels blog throughout the month, too, to see what their girls have created using Webster’s products.
I launched off the month with this little wall hanging I made for my scraproom using papers from Postcards From Paris and Nature’s Storybook along with lots of the gorgeous Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists.
Started this project with a 9″x9″ plaque wall hanging I found at the thrift store. It was white plastic, originally. For the background, I tore up lots of pieces of white tissue paper that was leftover from Christmas packages and adhered them to the hanging using a mixture of 50/50 Mod Podge to water. Any liquid glue will work. This gave me a fun textured background to play with. Once finished, I masked off the center area and then sprayed the edge of the frame with English Ivy Glimmer Mist and then a lighter coat of Gold Glimmer Mist. I then laid a piece of lace paper over the center area and sprayed with Blue Skies Glimmer Mist, which gave me a unique patterned look.
Cut some clouds from the Paris Couture paper for the top and flowers from Soar Blue Skies for the bottom. The tree was created from the die-cut cardstock stickers using a fun negative/positive treatment to get a double image. I used the tree from the Winter’s Wings diecut stickers and cut around the outline of the tree from the Nature’s Storybook stickers. Layered them together for a fun outlined shape.
The house is part of a chipboard album from Maya Road that I covered in Grow Dreams, Soar Blue Skies and Romantique chic papers. Created the windows using chipboard frames covered in Heidi Swapp tape and backed with the Nature’s Storybook designer vellum. Used the Nature’s Storybook Storyteller Alphas for the wording. Sprayed the house with Gold Glimmer Mist. Love how that shines!
I silhouette cut photos of my kiddos in black and white, using pop-dots to adhere them in place. Created a sign post from patterned papers. Added butterflies from the diecut sticker sheet and a couple of the Whimsy Threads for some fun texture. The gated Whimsy I cut into two pieces so they could flank the house.
Loved using the Mists on almost every item here, including the frame edge and background, the papers, the small flowers in the tree and the pearls in their centers, and even the white resin frame in the attic rooftop.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope you’re having a wonderful day in your neck of the woods!
