Winter Antics

Hi and welcome. I've been bouncing around different Blogs this last week, discovering amazing artists and their gorgeous work. While doing this, I also found some great challenge sites I hadn't known about. The result of all of this was for me to try some new challenges. Now that I've bookmarked the sites, I hope to visit them more often.
A wintry layout was the requirement at: http://showusyourstuff.blogspot.com.au/. Winters where I live are fairly mild compared to other parts of the country. The photos chosen for this layout were taken on top of Mt Wellington, Hobart while on a trip there in 2010. It was our first experience of ice and snow (even though it was a light covering) and we found it truly amazing. We couldn't get over the plants which had been transformed into crystalline structures, or the huge sheets of ice which had formed on the towers. It really was quite magical in appearance.


The  background card stock was stamped, smooshed with Distress Inks and lightly sprayed with Glimmer mists. Die cut and punched crystals made from pearlescent card and mirror board were added and finished with  Crystalina Kindyglitz.
We had a fabulous holiday and Tasmania has become a favourite destination and we're looking forward to going back again.
Thank you for visiting and for your lovely comments.
Cheers, Di
