122217 Snow Day

Archi-scraps January challenge - tassels
Julene has outdone herself with the January challenge inspiration. I need to see this one in person!
I have really been enjoying playing around with the Stuck?! Sketches lately.

Stuck?! Sketches December 15, 2017
 I liked it turned once to the right with these snow day photos of the grands.

First I knew that I wanted a snowflake for my shape behind the photos, 
so I grabbed some "waste washi" & color shine. Love how it looked before I did anything!

 I added tinsel color shine & white paint splats.
Anyone notice my boo-boo? I left the washi roll on the paper when I sprayed!
I made a nice save on that, as you'll see later.

The color & shine is really gorgeous.
I stitched the snowflake with silver thread & added lots of little snowflakes & tiny beads.

I've added a few touches of trim & washi to highlight my photos.  The beautiful tassel was a handmade forgery gifted to me by another Counterfeit Kit Challenge DT member.

That washi oops circle provided a great place for my title!

Now try your hand before the December 29th midnight EST deadline & post at Stuck?! Sketches.
You have the entire month of January for the Archi challenge - woot!
