One of the requirements is that you are inspired by something Linda has done. You don't need to copy it, just be inspired by it. You can see Linda's third tag here and then I'll share what I did with my project.
Well, the first thing I saw when I looked at the tag was that fantastic snowflake. I loved it but I didn't have the die and I immediately thought of a snowman to replace it. Here is what my project looks like.
I'm using 5"x7" watercolor paper for all the projects and they will eventually be bound into a book of some sort. I'm not there yet! I sprayed the paper with Perfect Pearls Pearl and then with Smoke Blue in some areas. I then used a Spellbinders embossing folder of wind blown snowflakes and ran it through the machine. Using my finger I applied Maya Gold in Silver over some of the raised areas. I die cut the Tim Holtz snowman out of white paper and used Stampendous Spoonful of Snow Embossing Powder and Elements to emboss him. The "elements" in the chunky embossing powder are flakes of iridescent mylar which melt with the heat. You need to hold the heat gun under the piece you're embossing. I put him on foam tape and used pan pastels to create a shadow around him. The shadow on the right side is not as defined as it looks in the photo but the light created that shadow and I didn't realize it until after I saw the picture on the computer. But, there is a shadow and it makes a difference on the finished piece. The banner is from an Authentique cut apart paper that I had and I thought it was fun. The snowman looks like he's wondering why they can't find him! I added two little snowflake rhinestones that have an AB finish which looks great with the mylar on the snowman. The larger snowflake one is one of Tim's and I daubed it with Distress Paint and sprinkled it with clear Rock Candy glitter.
Here are two close ups.
So, there you have it. Week number 3. It's a rather simple project but sometimes simple is nice!
Thank you so much for visiting with me. I so enjoy having you stop by. Have a wonderful day and do something fun!
