Escape to Nature by Rachelle Sigurdson

Hello & Happy New Year! Where I live January & February are very crisp & cold, so I decided to do another LO using the Beautiful Winters Edge Collection…….

The 49 and Market used:

Winters Edge

SG-87230 Stargazers - Simply White
SG-87230 Stargazers – Simply White

Other Elements used: Dusty Attic Chipboard: Scribble Frame Set, Chain Rectangles, Mini Bare Trees, Wildgrass #2, Foliage #12, Bird House, Wordplay…..White Corrugated Paper,Black Gesso, Shimmerz Inklings Chocolate & Diamonds,White Crackle Paint,Dreamweaver Embossing Paste, Prima Glass Glitter Pearl, TH Distress Glitter, Clear Gesso, Prills Mini Pearls…..

For the background I used 2 sheets of Snow Covered Trees. I ripped a piece from the top then glued white corrugated paper into the layers. Before gluing the corrugated paper into the layers, I applied Dreamweaver Embossing Paste & Sprinkled on Prima Glass Glitter Peal onto the wet glitter. I cut out the trees from the bottom of the sheet & also did the snow effects on the trees…..

For the chipboard (the black pieces) I painted them with black gesso, then the Shimmerz Inklings Chocolate & Diamonds & for the white pieces I used white crackle paint…..

I matted the photo with Snow Covered Trees-BS, glued on the chain frame, then did some snow effects on the outside edges of the mat of the photo, on some of the chipboard pieces, the outside edges of the Stargazer flowers, & on some of the Laser Cuts…..

I did use some flowers on this LO for texture, but tried to keep it Rustic, Winter, Outdoors….Here are a few more close ups……….

Thank you so much for taking the time to look & all the best to you & yours for the New Year….Rachelle
