Well, the holidays are over, and the New Year is here. Let's hope it's a good one, I think we could all use a fresh new year. I always feel kind of sad when all the Christmas decorations come down and get packed up. The house feels sort of empty, so I decided to make a winter wall hanging as a little pick me up till the valentines day decorations come out. I got the inspiration for this little cutie from the Melissa Frances web site. I bought these little bottle brush trees from the Melissa Frances booth at the Ontario expo. They were one of those Oooh, I just have to have those. So I was browsing around the internet for decorating ideas with them, and ended up on the Melissa Frances site, wow, there are some fabulous things on there, you really must take a look. So, anywhoo, here is my take on the project. The little girl image is from Crafty Secrets, the winter phrase, keyhole, mica flakes, crepe paper and tree are from Melissa Frances, the Bingo card is from Apriles Attic(www.aprilesattic.com), the chipboard stars are Bazzill, the patterned paper is Cosmo Cricket, and the chipboard wreath and lantern are from Tattered Angels. I put all this together on a cheapo canvas frame from the dollar store. Oh, and the silver glittery scalloped paper is Doodlebugs sugar paper in white, and I sprayed it with silver glimmer mist to change it's color. Heres to new possibilities, and a happy new year!
I live in California with my husband, and three daughters. I am an avid scrapbooker, and a Tattered Angels endorsed educator. I am also an educator for Elizabeth Craft Designs (yummy glitter). I teach scrapbooking classes at scrapbook and stamping stores in Southern California. I love using found objects in my scrapbooking, and ribbon, flowers, buttons, bling and of course Glimmer Mist and glitter make regular appearances on my scrapbook pages. My favorite subjects to photograph are my girls. I do something "scrappy" everyday.
