Peachy Keen Stamps Challenge # 30 and Frosted Designs
Peachy Keen Challenge # 30 Shadow box!!
Onto our next challenge - it's shadowbox time!! For this project, create either an 8x8 or a 12x12 layout to go into a shadowbox. If you only want to create the layout, that is perfectly ok, the shadowbox part is optional. Please link up your entry no later than June 20th to be eligible for the random drawing and judged entry! You're encouraged to use your Peachy Keen Stamps if you have them (we absolutely love to see what you create with our products!), but it is not a requirement.
Wow!! This challenge was tough!! I thought about it and thought about it and then it came to me!! My story behind it: I am originally from New York and have many memories of playing in the freezing snow with my sister... now that I live in Arizona and have children of my own it makes me sad that they have never seen snow! So I often tell them about all of my adventures and snowball fights and they love to hear about them.... so why in the middle of June?? Because we have already hit 109 degrees!! So we always think about the snow in summer! I made this to hang in my girl's toy room to help us smile while we sweat all summer long!!
It was a true labor of love!! I cut the snowmen from Stretch Your imagination, the tree cut is from Every Day Paper Dolls. I embossed the snowmen and used Elmer's glue and lots of glitter I added red ribbon for scarfs. Faces are stamped with my one and only set of Peachy Keen Stamps PK-504! I love how the tree turned out, I lined it with glue and added glitter. I used a Styrofoam ball and my cheese grater to make the snow... ( I never use my grater anyway!) I then hand cut the mountains used a paint brush and glue and added the shavings and re-sprinkled with glitter.
I'm supposed to be the one in the top right corner calling my girls who are in the middle of a snowball fight.... The bigger snowgirl happy that she has a stash of snowballs and the little one in preparation of getting hit with one! This project also is being entered into Frosted Designs! The challenge for the month is Glitter, Glitter Glitter!
