White Christmas for Creative Embellishments

Merry Christmas everyone.... it's December and we are in full swing with our wintery projects. This month at Creative Embellishments we have this lovely pic to inspire you with gorgeous colors & elements. The twist for your project is to also add snowflakes !

For my design team project I decided to create a mixed media canvas utilizing the trees, colors and fairy in the photo, with snowflakes of course...
This is an 8.5 x 11 canvas that was sprayed first with my Lindys in scrumptious colors. Then using balsam chips I created my Christmas tree. Adding Distressed Inks in Concord Grape and Faded Jeans. Now on to my CE chippies... 
The snowflakes were embossed with assorted colors of Lindys embossing powders. The title was embossed with Winter White and the fairy was embossed with Stardust which is translucent. 
For the snow I used a Snow Marker which you heat with a heat gun to create the snow. This was a fun project with colors that I usually don't use for Christmas but they definitely work. I hope you enjoyed my canvas and please pop over to our blog HERE  to see more exquisite inspiration from the team. Wishing you all a warm and cozy December ! xoxo Toni
