One last Challenge for The Memory Nest

My term with The Memory Nest has ended and i am going to share with you my last project as a design team member.

I would like to thank everyone for their comments and support and i would like to thank Leslie for giving me the opportunity to work with this talented team.

I wish the team luck with their next term and i will do my best to pop in and visit your blogs.

 So here is my take on of Crystal's Sketch, i've gone for a winter theme as we are fast approaching Christmas. i have to say i am glad a got most of my shopping done on Black Friday but the town was heaving and i was exhausted afterwards. i am very tempted to do all my shopping online but then it would take away part of the joy so i will just start earlier to avoid the rush,

I used the lovely First Edition Vintage Noel paper pad as the background and the Christmas Village pad from last year as the second layer. \i then mixed some ultramarine powdered ink and glitter into texture paste before applying it to the That Special Touch Snowflake frame mask.

This is a photo of a church i used to walk past to get to work every morning. it had snowed and everything was sparkling in the light. It was only last year and i wonder if we will get any snow this winter.

 i used the Dovecraft Essentials 3D pearls to create this meated ice effect and to create the icicles. i then rubbed some on to the flowers to give them an icy look the wooden embellishments i painted with acrylic paint and then rubbed Dovecraft Essentials glitter glue over them to add a sparkle.

i wonder where my next crafty adventure will begin as we approach a new year, all i know is that i will bring you all with me.  Thanks for visiting
