Peeled Tree

Hello!  I have used a *CLOUD TREE* (pack of 2) to peel this week.  I am pleased with how it turned out and that has to be down to he quality of the chipboard these shapes are cut from!

I dunked the top of the tree in water until it was wet through then gently peeled and squished each layer to how I wanted it to look when dry.  Its pretty wet so I left it on a radiator overnight.  They layers came a little adrift at the top but it was easy just to glue the centres of them back together again!

The tree was then painted with acrylic paint in different greens and some clear glitter glue applied in places.  The trunk was also painted with acrylic.  I decorated a *MEDIA BOARD* (pack of 5) for the tree to sit on, adding some stamping & stencilling (*MINI MASK*) to add interest.

Here are the products I used:

Thank you for looking today.  Enjoy hugging a tree!  HUGS, Karen x
