Snowmen & Birds by Guest Designer Heather Hudson

Hello Friends!!

Heather here and today I would like to share with you another

Guest Design Piece I have done using  

Gina's Chipboard

and some fabby Ribbons and trims from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
First up, I have a couple snowmen that I have done in a shabby chic style using Gina's Snowman Banner and My Floral Digital Papers.

I covered all the pieces with my papers then inked the edges with Ranger's Frayed Burlap.

I used Fauna, Storm, Just Peachy and Arbor Glitters on all of my snowmen.  I also added 1/4 natural crochet lace on each of the hats and then topped them with snowflake chippies that I covered in Fauna glitter.  Then I placed a Deep Ivory Mulberry Rose or

Baby Pink Mulberry Roses on top of that.  I added vintage buttons tied with  Cotton Candy Baker's Twine or Aqua Baker's Twine.  The buttons and snowflakes were elevated using


I also played with one of Gina's Birds on Key Set

I painted the piece first with Gesso, then water colors in blue, pink, and dark yellow.

After I painted it I put a layer of matte gel medium over it.  This way I could add another layer of water colors.  Below you will see I used some Golden Brown on the Key.

Next I added some darker blue to the blue birds and red to their chests and golden brown to the beaks.  I also stamped on the key with Tree Branch Archival Ink.  

For my Final step I added another layer of matte gel medium and then doodled with a black pigma pen.  I just love how it turned out!

I used Gina's
