12 Tags of Christmas, Day 4
So for Day 4 Tim did a really cool, snow inspired tag using crackle paint, check it out. Pretty impressive.
We haven't had any snow since that freaky bit just before Halloween, so I found inspiration in the green, brown and yellows from our great outdoors. My snowman is painted with silver and gold, and yes I hear Burl Ives as the snowman singing. Since me is metallic I thought I would steam punk things a bit and used the on the edge gears instead of snowflakes. For the background I used peel paint, wild honey and picket fence stains. I added gears, where Tim used buttons. The ribbon was a magical offering from the craft table, as it appeared just as I needed it. Thanks for looking.
I will be entering this at Simon Says Stamp and Show as well as Inspiration Emporium Tim Holtz 12 Tags.
