Winter in July
This is for a challenge on the Smoothfoam blog. I received the Smoothfoam in my box of goodies from The Robin's Nest.
I made this wall hanging using 2 pieces of Smoothfoam, one size 8”x 1” and the other 6”x 1”.
I started by decoupaging the “Winter Retreat Swirl” paper from The Robin's Nest onto the 8”x 1” smoothfoam. Once that was dry I cut the 6" x 1" in half with an electric knife and then tore it in pieces and glued in onto the paper to make it look like a hill. Once that was dry I used my homemade molding paste (4 Tablespoons baby powder, 2 Tablespoons gesso and 1 Tablespoon mod podge and mix it all together) and put that on my hill. I added some glitter to make it sparkle.
I used Tim Holtz sizzix die to cut out the houses at the top and backed with black paper, the trees were made with a pine tree die to cut out the Christmas trees with a little white paint on the branches.
The 2 solid boys and sled were cut using my Cameo while the two boys, snowflakes and word “snow” were rubs called “Snow” from The Robin's Nest that I on stuck on cardstock and then cut out.
I used the Ace of Diamond Dew Drops for an additional snowflake look. I used a punch to cut out some additional snowflakes that were layered and used on the front.
Finally, I took some of the leftover paper, ran it through my crimper and glued that along the sides and to finish it off punched some smaller snowflakes from the rest of the leftover paper and added those to the side.
