This entire month of January I will be presenting some of my crafts for Stampotique. This week's theme is "Anything Goes". This has carried over from December as we have all been busy preparing for our Christmas festivities.
This project although not huge took me weeks to complete as I have on going health problems and finding the energy to craft, let alone be creative, has been a huge Stampotique Challenge. How and never here is my take on this weeks challenge.
This house has been recycled from my application to be on the team. It has been painted, glittered, glued and Christmafied hohoho.
The base was an old catalogue cover, which was painted with gesso then lots of glue applied and then tissue paper crinkled up and adhered.
I then poured lots of pva glue into a tray and added lots and lots of glitter. This was then liberally plaster onto the house and ground to make my snowy scene.
I used real cinnamon sticks for the logs, pine cone for my tree and an old circle cut from my mums old piano as my skating rink. The fence was bought at a local craft store then hot glued onto the ice rink.
The snow balls are recycled from Christmas Crackers from 5 years ago hohoho, what a hoarder I am. You can see them two pictures above.
All the skaters have white mini pegs tuned upside down for ice skates. My skaters are Waving Spotted Monster, Birdy Up, Smile, Relaxin and Line Up.
The icicles were made using hot glue on my non stick craft mat, leave to cool then adhere using more hot glue. I used another Stampotique stamp Home Sweet Home to replicate a door using a PITT pen to colour and of course one of my favourite gals Gooseneck.
A fun project, hope you have enjoyed this as much as I did making it. Hop, or should that be 'slide', on over to the Stampotique Designers Challenge blog and check out more fantastic crafts: http://stampotiquedesignerschallenge.blogspot.co.uk/
