Happy Christpaws

Good Morning Crafters
Today we are sharing Elaine's project with you, an idea for this Christmas maybe!

This is Elaine's last project with us on the DT and we wish her all the best for the future.
Products used can be found on the Personal Impressions website.
Americana Decoart Chalk Paint Everlasting and Rouge
Decoart Snowtex
Ranger Stickles Christmas Red
Wooden Plaque
I had this wooden plaque made, there are lots of laser cutters out there if you Google them that will be happy to help you have a personalised sign made. I then gesso the plaque to give a good coverage as sometimes with laser cutting it does burn the wood and will bleed through you paint.

Next draw a faint line where you want the red and white to meet, the idea is to look like there is snow at the bottom of the wood. sorry I forgot to take a photo of this process...caught up in the moment LOL.  This chalk paint is fabulous to work with. You can heat dry it as you go along, great if your impatient like me!

Next apply stickles around the edge of the red wooding using a cocktail stick, it does take time but if you use the nozzle it is to thick.

Apply the Snowtex to the bottom and spread up the wording, this was the first time i had used this product but it does feel like crunchy snow, I also added a bit of water as it is thick which made it easier to spread using a spatula. I also added some glass glitter to the snow and left this to dry over night, but it does say it will dry in about 3 hours. I have also added some white glitter to the snow flake and paw just to add a extra touch.  
Doesn't this look fabulous!
Thank you for visiting and see you tomorrow!
