Thank you for the lovely comments on my mixed media card that I shared with you a couple of days ago. While I had the paints and messy playtime stuff out on my desk I thought I would finally have a go at decorating one of the wooden fairy doors from The Works that had been sitting waiting patiently on my shelf for months!
I decided to make it in to a Christmas project.
After removing the hinges and latch I set about painting the frame with two tones of green Pebeo paint and the door with a red DecoArt paint that came free with a magazine recently. The base was painted with white acrylic and then I added snowballs from Anna Marie Designs using 3D Schnee glue, once this was dry I gave the whole thing a spray coat of Spray & Sparkle - Pearl Diamond from Crafters Companion. It now has a durable top coat and beautiful shimmer all over, I hope you can see this in the photo's. The wooden 'Christmas' word, which I picked up from my trip to the N.E.C. this year, was given a coat of gold paint and also a coating of sparkle spray. Both the wooden snowflakes have been in my stash for some time and these were heat embossed with white and then a silver sparkle embossing powder.
After re-assembling the hinges and latch I set about creating a wreath from a Martha Stewart frond punch, some tiny red pearls, a teeny tiny bell and a new Tonic word die.
