Snow Place Like Home-Cross Promotion With The Robin's Nest

Hi! Lynne here with a winter-themed project. Anyone who knows me knows that I'm NOT a huge fan of winter or of that cold white stuff. I do, however, have a soft spot for snowmen (I still have my snowman collection up and will probably keep it out til March!) and these adorable rustic snowmen from The Robin's Nest caught my eye right away along with the rub-on snowflakes.

I used the Picket Fence Wall Panel (coming soon to Gina's store!) as a base and covered it with wood-grain patterned paper, then sanded and inked the edges. After attaching the snowmen, I created a base of "snow" for them with homemade texture paste, then painted that with glitter paint. I used the same texture paste and paint for the icicles.

I used Stampendous Aged Ivory embossing powder on the chipboard snowflakes, which along with the tree, come from Gina's Winter Shapes Set.

I couldn't resist putting the cute little squirrel in the tree!

I loved the size and font of The Robin's Nest letter stickers and colored  them black to coordinate with the rustic feel of my project. I love that the glittery look of them still shows through!

Thanks so much for stopping by, and stay warm, it's cold outside! brrrrr!
