Hello and Happy November! This year our challenges are based on musical inspiration with some of Kim's favourite songs, and the song Aspenglow by John Denver is our inspiration for November. We want to see anything you create that is inspired by winter, snow, mountains, etc! Listen to the song below and get creating - then link up at the bottom of the post or share on social media using the hashtag #ecnov2019 for a chance to win a cool prize pack!
Hello everyone! It's November already and we start thinking about colder weather, rustic cabins, and decorating trees! This month's dare will get you in that holiday mood for sure!
I partially folded a paperback book into a tree for my project - you can find all kinds of easy patterns out there in Google land! Then I went to work decorating and embellishing!
Once my tree was folded, everything stood up perfectly, but I did adhere the whole thing to cardboard to make it more sturdy! I used a rustic Christmas-themed paper on the sides that had a peeled paint look with trees and snowflakes. I used the snowflake stamp embossed with Paprika to add some more red. Then I lightly brushed matte gel randomly on the tree and sprinkled the Forest Foliage powder on it dry to give it a flocked look. I decorated the tree with the brads and some trim.
The Molten Glass was used around the edges and on the white snowflakes dry to give an icy affect.
I put a couple snowflake charms on the sides, some lace on top, and topped off my tree.
