A mixed media Snow Princess... 38

Mona Pendleton | Friday, September 28, 2012 @ 10:30 PM | , , , ,

Hi there! I hope you are all having a terrific weekend! I'm so excited to share a fun project I made using products from the new Pink Paislee City Sidewalks collection that will soon be hitting the store shelves! I combined these fun products with MFT stamps and a Die-namics die to create a mixed media canvas which I am calling my Snow Princess ;) I combined techniques that I learned from both Julie Nutting and Christy Tomlinson.
Her fancy belt/sash was made using pretty pieces from the City Sidewalks Snowflakes Chipboard pack, her dress was made using fun City Sidewalks patterned paper along with City Sidewalks Collage Sheets.
To create the title, I combined shimmery letters from the Pink Paislee Portfolio Alphabet Stickers pack and I stamped the Princess sentiment from MFT Sassy and Sweet stamp set on a die cut piece made using Die-namics Sweet Stack Labels. I randomly stamped the background with snowflakes from DC Christmas Ornaments and text from Die-namics First Class Friend and Stamp Set.
All the beautiful chipboard snowflakes are from the City Sidewalks Snowflakes Chipboard pack with some drops of Perfect Pearls:
In case you were curious how I started this project I took a few photos sharing my creative process:

First I randomly adhered torn pieces from City Sidewalks Collage Sheets to the canvas:
Then I added lots of layers of paint and heidi swapp Tinsel Color shine:
Then I was ready to adhere my Snow Princess:
Thanks so much for visiting! I hope you have a great weekend! I'll see you Sunday, Midnight Eastern with an all new CR84FN!
Be Sweet :)
