A Winter's Morning

Hi guys, over at Tando Creative this week we have a tree's theme going on, so still being in a Christmas decoration mood I made this as a center piece for my table,

I took one of the Fir trees set, which is a set of three and stippled some of the Deco art texture sand onto them, this gives a lovely shadowy and textured effect, as it was drying I sprinkled glamour dust (glitter) over them, these sparkle beautifully in real life but as usual it isn't showing on here!!

The firt trees come with their own little stands but i decided to add them onto a mixed media board instead, which i covered unevenly, thicker in some places with Deco Art Modeling paste,
I took some of the adorable mini's Reindeer and painted them with Silver fluid ink and gave the Antlers a coat of stickles, these again sparkle lovely,
I fixed the deer onto the base when dry with some acetate, then added some Finland moss to my scene, I think the deer look like there having a lovely morning run through the woods,
