Frosty winds made moan.... By Zuzu

 I have begun to think of christmas projects now. lets face it, if you are going to be making things for christmas then you need time to gather inspiration, choose the stamps and supplies, order them, receive them and then get making. With that in mind, I have made this little frost inspired arch (this can be adapted to any winter scene even if you do not celebrate christmas.)

I used one of the little wooden arches from HERE. I decorated it with paint effects; sky blue (toned down with a little white) for the undercoat and blank canvas white for the top coat), sanded it then stamped it using some christmas stamps from HERE... snowflakes, "silent night" and the little winter scene... I have also used some of the trimming from the Tim Holtz collection by cutting off four or five individual roses from it.

 I painted some fake ivy leaves in white and added glitter to them and stuck on some silver snowflakes i have had in my stash for more years than I care to remember.
and there you have it. a wee snowy frosty sparkling shrine.
