Creative Embellishments January Sponsor Spotlight

Welcome to our first Sponsor Spotlight of this New Year!!  We've got our Our Creative Corner's owner, Laura, showcasing goodies from our January Challenge Sponsor-Creative Embellishments for you today--Take it away, Laura!!  


Hi everyone!

 I am so pleased to be bringing you our January Sponsor Spotlight. Our wonderful Sponsor this month is Creative Embellishments!


I LOVE the items Creative Embellishments make! They are so gorgeous and delicate - they are a perfect addition to any project you are making - and the choice is amazing in their store - every subject, size, variety...you will be spoilt for choice. They are kindly offering a wonderful prize for the winner of this months challenge.....see what I made with some of the items they sell....

    I chose to use a berry wreath and a bird from their chipboard range



I cut a circle card background for the wreath and covered it with German text paper



I then painted over it with White Acrylic paint and Iced Spruce Distress Paint to make the snow and sky background. I covered the snow area with glue and sprinkled it with Rock Candy Distress Glitter.

I painted the wreath with Burnt Umber Decoart Media Fluid Acrylic paint and painted the berries with white acrylic paint so the red will really show up well


I then painted the berries with Quinacridone Red Decoart Media Fluid Acrylic paint and when dry I added blobs of Decoart Liquid Glass to add a berry shape.


I dabbed the leaves, wreath and berries with white acrylic paint then covered the wreath with Rock Candy Stickles glue and sprinkled a little extra Rock Candy Distress glitter to add some lovely frosty texture.


Some rusty wire curls added some foliage texture to the whole wreath and a hanger was made of rusty wire too


The robin was painted with Frayed Burlap Distress paint and Ivory, Red and Burnt Umber acrylic paint.


 I stamped some snowflakes and diluted some white acrylic paint with water and splattered the thin paint over everything to look like snow.




Hope you like my Winter Wonderland Spotlight!

Come and join in with Claudia's challenge this month to be in with a chance to win $25 worth of Creative Embellishments goodies!

Happy Crafting!

  6. Sorry, I'm late, but better late than never! At least for me, because I wouldn't have wanted to miss this beautiful wreath! Love the frosty, wintry feel and that brilliant bird and berries rally pop off that white book page! Gorgeous!
