Tutorial
Where I live, we get WINTER, snow & cold. Our days are short, & I spend much more time, inside our home, so I do more Scrapbooking, in the winter months, to pass the winter away. I love to work on winter LO’s because of the Snow Texture. You may find my tuts confusing, because I do them, in the order, that I have taken the photos. I have so much on the go, when I am working on a project, plus I have to allow pieces to dry. I do not use a heat gun, I let the pieces dry naturally, either in my front south window, when the sun is out, or my bedroom closest, the smallest warmest room in our home. It has a floor heater, so a placed a rack over top it, & will place pieces of the projects, on that, to allow quicker drying. I also, depending on my day, may have missed a few photos, so I apologize for that.
I painted the small,& large wreath, string & pearls with clear gesso, then glued on some burlap string, & pearls. I painted all of this with the clear gesso again Once the gesso dried I randomly painted them with clear crackle…
Primed the FF”In the Garden-BS” with clear gesso, let dry then did some stencil work, using the DA Bubbles Stencil, & translucent embossing paste…
shows stencil work…
I painted the flowers, with LuminArt H20, Heavenly White, to give them shimmer, & changed the flower centers, using Prills-Sage Advice….
Glued lace, onto a piece of card stock, that I had cut into a circle
Using a brush, I applied  Prima snow texture & sprinkled on the glass glitter, on the wet texture, to the outside edges of the flowers….
Glued the Flower Fairies circle, onto the lace & card stock….
Glued the holly flourish onto the berry wreath. I primed the flourish with the clear gesso…
Primed with clear gesso, & painted with clear crackle…
Painted the wreath & pearls with Nuvo Crystal Drops-Antique Rose
Painted the Holly flourish, with altering DA paints, Oceania, & Mountain Meadow…
Painted clear crackle, on to the Holly Flourish…
Applied Prima Soft Gel, to the BS of the FF circle,,,
& glued it on to the corrugated paper, that I had cut into a circle ( I put a weight on this until the gel dried). I primed the corrugated with the clear gesso, then painted it with clear crackle. I sprinkled on some mini art stones, while the crackle was still wet. I also primed the lace, with the clear gesso, Once every thing dried, I painted the stencil work, lace & corrugated  paper with Shimmerz Inklings Sheer Bliss,to give it shimmer…
I painted these pieces, with Inklings Spotlight white, but was not happy with the color so went over it with the LuminArt Heavenly white…
Painted the lace & stencil work with the sheer bliss…
Glued lace under the corrugated paper, primed it & painted it with sheer bliss…
Glued the berry wreath onto the back ground…
then the smaller wreath…, I painted the Holly Flourish with Liquid Pearls-Robins Egg, then applied snow texture on the wreaths, flourish & the outside edge of the corrugated paper 
Started the flower clusters…
Added more flowers
Glued on the title
Glued on some foliage…
Glued on some pinecones, that I sprayed with a acrylic sealer, then primed with clear gesso. I then painted them with the LuminArt Heavenly white, & applied, using a brush, the snow texture &sprinkled on glass glitter on to the wet texture…
Stitched & glued on the hanging piece & bow..
Took photos outside, staging it with the handmade doily, that I found @ a second hand store for 25 cents, & placing on a round place mat, to stage the photo, then I thought this frames the wreath so I decided to use this as a back ground…
I primed the doily & place mat with the clear gesso, once the gesso dried I painted the doily & matt with the sheer bliss…


Applied snow texture & glass glitter to the outside edges of the mat, I do sections, over a paper plate, using a paint brush to apply the snow texture, then sprinkling on the glass glitter, while the texture is still wet. I tip the project, as I am doing this, so I can keep the excess glitter, I bend the plate & pour it back into the jar…


No sun out today, so into the closet it goes!!!!

While the crackle was still wet, I placed the DA doily on top. I had cut the doily, primed it with white gesso, painted it with clear crackle, & once the crackle dried, I painted it with LuminArt H20,-Heavenly White
I decided to do the tut, after I got this far, so there is a few missing photos. When the Vintage Artisry Collection came out, Janene said that this Collection is neutral & can be used for any project, so that is why I decided to play with Collection, for Winter, Christmas LO’s & cards. I am very happy I made that choice! I used the 6×6, I cut the Report-BS in half (the bottom layer) distressed the edges & glued it on to card stock. The bottom measures 9.5 inches wide & 6 inches in height. The next layer is 6×6 “the Report-BS),using a ruler, I ripped it at a angle, distressed the edges, then using a brush, I applied the snow texture, & sprinkled on the glass glitter, over the wet snow texture. The top layer is 6×6 tattered-BS, ripped at a angle, distressed edges, applied the snow texture & glass glitter. I then glued on the Mini Icicle, did the same treatment as I did on the doily, but also applied the snow texture & glitter on to the top. I did not cut the rest of the circle, off of the doily, I used it to glue it behind the card….
I cut off the other half of the circle on this doily & glued it onto the card…
I primed the Marrakesh Trellis, then painted it with the LuminArt H20, Heavenly White, once that dried I applied drops of liquid pearls-Robins Egg…
