Oh this was so much fun and challenging.... Isn't it neat seeing all the challenge projects together? I think it is interesting that we each did something a little different with our projects. If you click on the picture and it will open in another screen (a little bigger) so you can see the projects better.
Here are the links to Ali, Kris and Alices' blogs to read about how their projects were created.
As for me, I opted for doing a little mixed media and used scrap book paper collaged onto an art canvas for my background.
I hooked the snowman and attached him to the canvas. Here is a side view of the snowman.
Another side view....
In this picture, you can see that I used the wire to make arms for the snowman and to hold his tree. Can you see the glitter that I added to the scrap book paper? Kind of makes it dreamy looking. I added a red wool scarf to the snowguy.
Here is a picture of the snowman's hat. I added the irredescient pipecleaner to the brim and added more tinsel glitter to the hat. You can see the scrapbook paper that I chose. The green was also irredescient and I love the circles on it.
The red ball, star button and wire were used in the hanger. The star button was a little to harsh color wise with the scrapbook paper so I primed it and added more glitter to it. Not bad....I'm kind of liking the tinsel glitter. (thanks Martha!)
Here is a closeup of the button after I made the changes to it. Sorry the picture is a little blurry but you get the idea.
I almost forgot to mention the ribbon....I thought the ribbon was pretty and it definitely directed me to the color palette I chose. To display it, I opted to attach it across the bottom of the canvas and have a space all to its own.
Now if I were to make this snowman again, I definitely would hook my snowman with whiter wool. It is a little to primitive for the pinky red and green paper in the collage. Lately, I've been leaning toward this pastel palette.....there is something soothing to me about the softness of the colors. Plus I love glitter!
Thanks so much for stopping by and following our challenge. We are all looking forward to the next one! Maria
