The snowflakes were used by Di in a class here. The letters that spell out WINTER are 70mm each and are a lovely font and a great size for working with.
First I painted each snowflake in baby blue acrylic paint, once dry I sponge painted antique white over the top fading at the edges.
To give each snowflake an aged look I inked the edges roughly with creamy brown chalk ink. I then decorated each snowflake with glitter dust over glossy accents.
To make each letter I triple embossed them with Blonde Moments Sugar Cool UTEE. To make the swirl effect I stamped in to the hot UTEE before it set with swirl stamps, I also dropped some gems for extra sparkle.
I attached each snowflake with wire and pearl beads adding tulle and jingle bells to every second snowflake. Every other snowflake was decorated with Christmas Prima flowers and stars. I fastened a beaded tassle to the bottom and tied several coordinating ribbons and jingle bells to the top.
This wall hanging could also be made with the words SNOW that are also available and also has the option to be made horizontally.
There will be a class PDF file available soon which will show more step by step photographs.
