I'm on Playdate Thursday duties this week and I'm going to share something a little bit Christmassy.
Don't shoot me down - around the world some of my friends are having mid-year Christmas functions and that said, meet one of my new friends.
Let me introduce to you my friend, Mr Snowman.
My friend started life as two polystyrene balls.
Those balls have been covered with glue, sprinkled with glitter then I have grabbed a paintbrush and stippled 'True Snow' all over them and then I have randomly applied Prima - Finnabair - mica flakes.
My snowman needed to have a hat.
Take one plain ol' brown paper bag. Open and fold up at least three times from the open end and scrunch a little.
When you are happy with the shape, grab a paintbrush and some black paint and apply to make yourself a black top hat.
Okay, so I got carried away a little and forgot the camera.
But it's now time to 'dress' your snowman.
I dug deep and found some bling brads - my snowman friend is a true blue eyed friend - lol.
Found another couple of teal brads and popped them in his body.
I shot outside with my scissors and cut some branches from a rose bush for the arms and another piece for his nose.
Grabbed my make up bag and blusher and added a little colour to his cheeks.
Cut a strip of burlap/mesh for his scarf and wound round his neck and tucked another brad through to secure to head.
He really is cuter than these pics show you to be honest.
I found a star and attached to his hand.
Cut out a couple of words and adhered to star.
Thinking along the lines, well it's Christmas and wish upon a star.
I added a little more True Snow on his hat, nose and scarf to blend him in a little more.
Now when I was out and about shopping recently I came across a real bargain
- at a whole $0.27 on sale - I found this candle stick holder.
with a coat of gesso ...
OMG, now I can't find the pics that I need - oops.
And I did take pics, I know I did.
That white covered monstrosity ended up a lovely shade of red and even had a coating of crackle.
Well it is now buried somewhere under all that greenery, those white baubles and those berries and the lights.
But I promise you that it is there, honest!!!
My friend Mr Snowman is sitting atop.
So there you have it.
My friend Mr Snowman.
Happy creating everyone.

This month, I am sharing a BAP with you all!
I love love love this month's Your Passion, Your Art kit! It is packed with Lemoncraft papers which I chose to use for this layout.
After drying with my heat gun, I took the Prima Color Bloom from the Mixed Art kit-Plumeria and added both full coverage areas and splatters
I used the wood flower icons from the Jillibean wood veneers and glued them randomly. I then covered them with white paint
Using the Color Bloom from the Main kit, I again did some misting around the flowers and used my paintbrush to blend a bit.
I cut out some of the Lemoncraft labels from the Small Art Big Passion kit and rolled them using different size paintbrushes.I also cut out the circles
Fussy cut some flowers from the sheet as well
Lay down the photo
I painted the Scrapiniec laser word with Shimmerz Green Olive from the Mixed Art and dried with heat gun
TIP- For laser cut out words such as these, I color and dry them BEFORE I punch them out. I find it helpful as they can be fragile.
Next, place 2 of the rolled scrolls on the right hand side of the photo. One a little higher than the other. Glue down circles and fussy cut flowers as shown. Add in one of the Lemoncraft adhesive buttons
Do the same on the lower left hand side of the page- (I winded up having 3 scrolls on the right side and 2 on the left)
Add in flowers on your left hand side and be sure to offset the 3rd scroll
Add your 2nd scroll to the right hand side
Glue down word on right hand side-finishing adding embellishments and flowers
Take a Pearl Pen and add flower centers into all the wood veneer flowers
I hope you enjoyed this months BAP and if you ordered the kit, please feel free to share your creations!!! We would LOVE to see them!
