I found this ornament that totally looked like spring
I removed and saved the insides for a future spring project
Using 2 spoonfuls I covered the inside moss with the distress grit paste
It's kind of like frosting ;)
No more green! Use a toothpick to push the "snow" further into your scene
Settle your dies over watercolor paper
You need 2 cuts of each house to turn it into a 3D version
Side of the house measurements
Cut the sides, score, notch and fold
Begin the construction by adhering the sides
Glue down one side before roping with the other die cut
Hehe lookie now you just need a roof!!!
Cut a length of 6" long and gold in half. The with will depend on the width of your house mine is 1.25"
Now that the roofing work is complete you can add the die cut part that includes the windows and door! I love this one because the door can be opened!!!
It started snowing!!! Use a palette knife (i prefer my fingers) yo add the grit paste to your house
And pour a shower of glitter of course!
While the paste is still wet attach your houses inside. Once it dries your pieces will be a permanent fixture
The tall skinny house sides and roof in one length of paper with all the notches needed to be folded
Follow the same procedure
Building number 2 is ready for the windows!
Perfect 3 stories high!
Add your trees and begin the snowing part
Cover the bottom of your glass
A perfect winter wonderland. You could leave it like that or not...it's all been drizzled with glitter inside!
Evergreen bough for the trees, so perfect!
I left it drying overnight and I'm actually painting inside the glass
Using your distress crayons paint a yard of ribbon in a color that matches. I'm using sweet spin sugar
Adhere your bow, tulle, pearls
Squirt a bit of liquid pearls and using the tip of a toothpick begin decorating your trees
See just a bit makes it shine. The liquid pearls formula will make that tiny drop to dry in a dime shape like a pearl!
