Frozen in Time

Hello friends!
Winter is here in Greece, so as cold wind, cozy mood and warm sweaters.
I think my layout for 2Crafty Chipboard shows this wintery feeling...

This photo is by Finnabair's Ephemera and I really love how old and timeworn it looks.
I used the Tiny Vivian's frame , the three Spiral Snowflakes of the set and a Pen Nib. I really love how they look on my composition.

In order to alter the spiral snowflakes I used White Gesso and white Glitter.
First I applied the gesso with a sponge and then I spread the glitter.
The gesso works just like glue, so the snowflakes where ready to use in no time!
(You can find a mini tutorial on how I altered the snowflakes at the end of this post)

I wanted the Tiny Vivian's frame to be black, so I painted it with black silk by ColourArte with a paintbrush.

For the pen nib (below) I used 'Vintage Photo' distress ink with the applicator and a little bit of white gesso in some spots. I stacked it on the page with staplers.

Christmas tree decorations

With only a few days left until Christmas and I decided to make some more decorations for my Christmas tree.

Here is how I made them. Very easy and quick!
You will only need White Gesso (you can also use any kind of glue like Gel Medium or craft glue), glitter and of course 2Crafty Chipboard :)

First you have to cover the chipboard with gesso. 

Before it drys, spread a generous amount of glitter.
Gesso will work as a glue.

Use the tweezers to remove the chipboard from the glitter and give it a good shake to remove the excess. Repeat the process if you have left some spots without glitter.

Tie some thread and your decorations are ready to hang on the tree.
