This months Blog Hop Theme is courtesy of Sharon Dalton and is called Winter Textures.
When i think of winter textures…I think of cool colours, icy, flannelette clothing and cable knit jumpers/cardigans!
So this is what I came up with!
For this Layout, I used Festive Farmhouse DSP (147820 HC) for my background. I sponged over with Night of Navy. Out came the Buffalo Stamp (147794 HC) and Frost White Shimmer Paint (147046 HC) to make my background. I just adore Shimmer Paint and I’m so pleased we have it back again!
Tip: You don’t need a block for this technique ..just dauber or sponge onto the stamp and use your hand to just pick up and stamp. It doesn’t have to be perfect and a bit of a roll on is great!
Now I also used some Silver embossing paste (145646 AC) and used the Chicken Wire Elements (147807 HC) as a stencil. This took awhile to dry so I used my heat gun to dry it all thoroughly.
The Cable Knit Embossing folder (143537 AC) was another Winter texture I added along with In the Woods Framelit Dies (147919 HC)
My focus on this Layout was my story! I really wanted to capture this story as Hubby reminds me often of it!
Other materials I used were: Thoughtful Banners Stamp set (141614 AC), Celebrate You Thinlit Dies (146840 AC), Layering Circles Framelits (141705 AC), Metallics Sequins (144214 AC), Silver Foil Sheets (132178 AC HC)
