Wish- Berry71Bleu Challenge

There is a new challenge over at Berry71Bleu. It is also my last post there as my term has come to an end.
 
I've had such an amazing time being on this team and befriending some truly amazing Artists who I now call my friends.  
 
Thank you so much Marivic for taking me on your team and thank you to all my wonderful teammates who are so amazing!!
 
 
I loved Vicky's Challenge this month and I made a Winter Scene layout.
 

This month's challenge is...

White Christmas!!!
 (or white winter for those that don't celebrate Christmas)
Create whatever you want as long as it has a white background as a base and is related to Christmas/winter
 
And this is what I have come up with using beautiful chipboard pieces from:


Who were kind and generous enough to sponsor our Design team with their beautiful products!!!


I used the chipboard snowflakes and flourishes for this layout. I covered them in white Gesso and then dabbed them with Glass Bead Gel with my finger. I love this effect as it looks shiny and translucent.  You can see the actual beads and I love it!! its the perfect effect for the chipboard.



I used a large acrylic snowflake as a frame over the picture. I covered the edges with the same glass bead gel.


For this layout, I used the sketch from Once Upon a sketch!! The theme this month is DECEMBER. I made a layout about how cold it is here in December and althought the snow looks beautiful on the trees, I rather have summer warmth.
I journaled on the back of the layout and expressed my dislike of cold winters even if they are beautiful to look at.



Materials used:
Papers: Pion Designs Silent Night from the Ces't Magnifique December Kit
Flowers: Manorhouse Creations, Green Tara
Chipboard: Wycinanka
Glass bead gel
Large acrylic snowflake: Clearscraps
Pearls: Queens & Co
White ball stems: Creative bags
Alpha and pearl stem: Unknown


 The prize at B71B
