Here’s one last winter layout and with this I bid Ole Man Winter good bye and good riddance!  We just returned from a month in Florida and it was cold for much of our time there.  Now I know you really shouldn’t complain about temperatures ranging from 30º to 75º but I am going to do it anyway!  We even had frost a couple of nights while there..  I could have stayed in NC and experienced those kinds of temperatures!

I don’t often do white space LOs, as it is my nature to cover EVERY square inch of paper with, what else but, more paper!    But, for this snowy layout, white space was a natural.  I used UHK Gallery’s Monsieur Charles paper from the Flying Unicorn Store along with Creative Embellishments chipboard to create this wintery scene.

To give your chipboard a snowy look, first paint it with white paint or gesso.  Then paint on some silver glitter paint and add icicle and crystal stickles.

Dry brush white paint or gesso on everything for a fresh fallen snow look.  I added some stickles to the ribbon and flowers to enhance the fresh fallen snow look.IMG_6126

I made my own snow by mixing together white molding paste, white gesso and grit.
