Frosty FUN!

Oh my goodness it's December! I'm still trying to figure out where November went! We've been having a stretch of balmy weather here in the Chicago area, but I'm sure we'll pay the price soon.
This month our Dreamweaver Stencil design challenge theme is Frosty Fun! Here's a quick project for last minute gift giving.
Start with a flat sided vase (I got mine from IKEA)

Line the Bare Trees stencil (LJ849) up along the top of the vase and
tape down the bottom edge on the bottom of the vase with removable tape

Load the paste spreader with Glossy White Embossing Paste
and put it at the top of the stencil

Draw the paste down the stencil

Don't worry about how "perfect" it looks nature is not always smooth!

Remove the stencil and place it in a pan of water

Sprinkle the wet paste with Crystal Glitter (from Art Glitter)
tap off most of the extra

Lay it down to dry
Once the paste is dry, use an X-acto knife to clean up any rough edges
or clean up between the tree trunks

Place vase on a piece of paper and use a soft brush to gently sweep off excess glitter

Make several, they make an awesome display!

Happy Creating,
Louise
