Tuts

Where I live, we get WINTER, snow & cold. Our days are short, & I spend much more time, inside our home, so I do more Scrapbooking, in the winter months, to pass the winter away. I love to work on winter LO’s, because of the Snow Texture. You may find my tuts confusing, because I do them, in the order, that I have taken the photos. I have so much on the go, when I am working on a project, plus I have to allow pieces to dry. I do not use a heat gun, I let the pieces dry naturally, either in my front south window, when the sun is out, or my bedroom closest, the smallest, warmest room in our home. It has a floor heater, so a placed a rack over top it, & will place pieces of the projects, on that, to allow quicker drying. I also, depending on my day, may have missed a few photos, so I apologize for that.

I decided to do the tut, after I got this far, so there is a few missing photos. When the Vintage Artisry Collection came out, Janene said that this Collection is neutral & can be used for any project, so that is why I decided to play with Collection, for Winter, Christmas LO’s & cards. I am very happy, I made that choice! I used the 6×6, I cut the Report-BS in half (the bottom layer) distressed the edges & glued it on to card stock. The bottom measures 9.5 inches wide & 6 inches in height. The next layer is 6×6 “the Report-BS),using a ruler, I ripped it at a angle, distressed the edges, then using a brush, I applied the snow texture, & sprinkled on the glass glitter, over the wet snow texture. The top layer is 6×6 tattered-BS, ripped at a angle, distressed edges, applied the snow texture & glass glitter. I then glued on the Mini Icicle, did the same treatment as I did on the doily, but also applied the snow texture & glitter on to the top. I did not cut the rest of the circle, off of the doily, I used it to glue it behind the card….
