Snow is Falling

I got this fabulous MDF Mail Album from My lovely friend Agnes owner of 14 Craft Bar recently by  Scrapiniec, which I altered using using the colour  white, with a hint of Silver too,
I decorated it to give a frosty snow effect using some mixed media and my Foamiran Poinsettia with winter leaves dies from lady E Design


I started off by painting the MDF Mail album with some white Gesso, giving them a couple of coats, then when dry going over with a coat of white Acrylic paint, 
In places I added some crackle paste to give an aged effect, 

Next I added my paper leaves made with Lady E Design Poinsettia and Winter Leaves dies, I cut some of the leaves out of non shed glitter card too, then the Poinsettias which I made out of 0.6 White Foamiran, these I added a hint of fine glitter glue to each petal, 

I added some Old Silver Wax with my finger here and there, having my floral display on first helped me to know where to put it,

Some people use the scroll effect on the inside at the top but I wanted to make a feature of it so after I had added all the above I glued it in place on the top as shown,

I used the small MDF adornments on this and on the bottom scroll too, this makes it look different but you can of course use it any other way too, non is right or wrong, do what ever you fancy,

I added some Art Stones mixed with some snowflake paste then I added these to the bottom right,

When dry I added some bead string and glitter balls to my floral display then I added some Pinflair Ice Diamond Glitter on the leaves and parts of the Mail album to finish it off, this really glimmers in real life, but sorry it doesn't really show to well on here,

I finished off with some various white laces, seam binding and a bit of white twine on the rings used to hold the Album together,

I thought I'd show another view of the Album as well,

I hope your inspired to have a go yourself, feel free to be inspired to use any ideas I've shown here, let me know if you have a go to,

Happy Crafting!!
