Hello, CE fans!

Sandi  here with you today sharing a wintry creation for Creative Embellishments.

If you know me very well, then you know that one of my favorite (and I mean favorite!) things to create is a project done on one of our Large Tags. The possibilities are endless and I like the 5.5 x10 inch size so that I can really layer and layer and layer to my hearts content! Tags are SO relaxing for me to create with!

To begin I chose one of the tags from the Large Tags, set of 3 and adhered some papers to it using 13 Arts Home Sweet Home paper collection and their gel medium. Next I applied a layer of gel medium and later, when that was dry, I did some stenciling with 13 Arts modeling paste and the CE Snowflake Stencil. Love that stencil!

Next I selected my chipboard pieces and painted them all a stark white. Full list of products is noted at the end of this post

As a base for my matted photo, I first adhered 3 large older Prima florals. Then I adhered my gorgeous Pine Needle Frame which was my inspiration for this project! As I worked, I used a combination of corrugated cardboard, chipboard and florals to support this very layered composition. This is when I am truly in my element … figuring when I can tuck and fluff and bring life to the work!

This time around I used 5 of the 6 flair buttons in the Watercolor Snowflakes set. The blue and white match beautifully with the other elements. And I’ve already ordered 2 more packs to have on hand! These may be my all time fave Flairs!

For a bit of novelty, I added some of the antlers from the Antlers set to tuck in here and there somewhat like you would a flourish or leaves. Originally, I intended to ink them with some brown tones but I really liked how they trick the eye when they are white. For a nice contrast and woodsy feel, some of my florals were chosen in brown tones instead,

Love how the antlers are a little unexpected pop.

Here you can also visualize a few of the Frosted Blue Acrylic Snowflakes. I decided to switch from the white ones that I’ve used a lot recently.

In the lower right corner of the composition, I added some of the lovely Falling Snow Set pieces to balance the heavy work on the left. Also, you can see three more of the gorgeous Flairs.
Of course, I finished my work with some splattered white paint which works nicely with the round dots found in the Snowflake Stencil.
A little more of the same on the right side of the photo. Oh, and one of the 13 Arts pine cones that I added in. My composition is about 4 inches high at this point, ha! Love it!
The ephemera is 13 Arts In Love collection. Such a great match to the Home Sweet Home!
One last Flair and a fluffy crinkle ribbon from @myscrapcabin is shown here!
Projects like this one where I can just keep adding and adding really make me happy! Endorphins were flying high here in my craft room.
