Fir Trees & Snowflakes

Hello Everyone
Let me stay with the theme of Christmas for this scheduled post where I thought I would share another a decoration using one of the images from Nicecrane’s Vintage Women’s Christmas. I have been playing with the images in the hope of making a little bit of a dent into my Christmas To Do List.
This sweet and rather mischievous looking child inspired me to make a wall hanging instead of a card.detail1I really should have focused on making another card but for some reason as I gathered all the pieces to make a card, it morphed into this hanging which would look pretty hanging from a door handle. lynnemoncrieffwallhangingI wanted a rustic appearance yet still to have a pretty look to it.  The lace ruffle and fragment of vintage lace at the bottom of the panel softens it to bring that pretty touch.
If you wish to join me as I share with you some of the details on this panel such as this bark star which I applied wax to bring some shimmer to it, topped with a vintage button.12 november 003The stamps are all from Oxford Impressions.
I know they can barely be seen but that is almost their appeal to me, when something is peeking out beneath a layer and makes you want to lean in and take time for a closer look.12 november 037Found papers are brought to life after I’d applied different mediums to the pieces, catching the light beautifully.12 november 001Thank You for your visit to this post as your visits are always appreciated. I still have lots of Christmas samples to share with you but my  next post will see me take a mini break from this theme.

    Well, I never! Corrugated card must do this to people! I can hardly believe it, but the same thing happened to me yesterday when I started to play with a piece of card! I started out with intentions of making a card and it morphed into something else! I love the idea of layers peeping out and just asking us to look closer. I love all the details on this and the subtle magic of it! Julie Ann xx

    What a beautiful hanging hollyday piece, my dear Lynne.
    All the different papers making such a wonderful effect on the corrugated cardboard, and the sweet bells, and the waxed star, giving glow and shine, to the very lovely image .
    The lace hanging from the cardboard is a romantic and beautiful finish.
    A fabolous art piece!!!

    Oh, this is so sweet, Lynne! And I like that you made a wall hanger rather than a card. I ‘d like to make a wall hanger out of corrugated cardstock , and your pieces are so inspiring!

    Another fabulous piece of corrugated creativity! I’d take (or make, for that matter) a hanging over a card any day, and this is just lovely – the shimmering bark heart is a lovely touch, as is that touch of glamorous glitter around the image.
