Winter Fun and an altered frame

Good afternoon peoples!  In my JAFF group at've been having weekly and semi-weekly online is sooo much fun!!!  Monday night we held one and a friend picked the layout Amore by Kaye222 for me to lift.  It was a bit of stretch for I like to really fill up my layouts with stuff!  LOL  Anyway...I switched it from a girly/love theme to a snowflake theme.  The paper is Bo Bunny midnight frost.  In place of her heart doilies, I put some snowflakes that I cut with my silhouette and sprayed with marshmallow glimmer mist.

I made my own flowers using different techniques.  The tree, pine cones, lantern, and little snowflakes are Tattered Angels glimmer chips.  The blue discs are from Walmart, after Christmas clearance.  The big blue and white snowflake on the bottom of the pic is from the Bo Bunny Midnight Frost stickers. 

I love this pic of DD, I took it on Christmas Eve when we had the big snow.

 On the bottom big one, I put white liquid applique on the tips and heated it when it dried to make it puff up like snow...I love the final result! I added some white feathers underneath my cluster. Cut the flourishes (that you can now barely see) with my sizzix bigkick, then glittered with frosted lace glimmer mist.

 I made this flower use scallop circle punches for the base, then added some white puffy paint to the tips.  I like the liquid applique better, but I had already made this one.  The hearts were a part of the flourishes I cut, and I also stickled them with frosted lace.

Here is a frame I altered for DD.  It started out brown and I got it for a $1 at Fred's....kind of like Dollar General if you've never heard of it.  I made all the flowers myself.  The frame was painted with white paint dauber from Tim Holtz, then I lightly brushed turquoise blue glitter paint on that and topped it off with some pearl paint.  The white springy things I painted with white paint (was the green floral tape), then while it was wet, I dipped it in glitter.  I learned this technique from Jennaroo at Held Scraptive, but she does it using real branches.  I added some chipboard flourishes I had inked with distress ink and sprayed with Turquoise perfect pearls mist.  The green hearts were painted with Claudine Hellmuth landscape green studio paints.  The lace started out white and I dyed it with pink glimmer mist.

Well, finally some new projects from me!  Thanks for taking a look and have a great Saturday and the rest of the weekend!

Oh...almost forgot...2 more of my layouts are getting published in Scrapbook News and Review February issue!  Pretty exciting for me!
