Winter Deer

Sometimes you just have to GLITTER!!
As soon as I started creating this reverse canvas winter deer scene, I knew it was going to be a glittery wonderland.
I used a deer in trees die cut, cut out in metallic turquoise.
Rows of the die cut forest, were cut out in cobalt blue, turquoise and silver metallic cardstock.
The tree branches on the top are done in the same way.
I painted the background in white, then a snow texture, then added silver glitter.
Branches painted in blue, then rolled in blue glitter with stars,were added to the edges of the canvas.
I added more snow texture on the branches to look like drifting snow.Some quick details; snow on forest trees, flat back sparkly and pearl jewels in the background, and of course, more GLITTER!

Peace on Earth

This is a piece I just made for the November customer challenge on the GeckoGalz blog. The theme is Peace on Earth.
I created my design on a 8" x 8" tin tile. I colored the embossed design using my Premier Prismacolor markers. The center is a pc of designer paper I had. the paper is edged with a blue distress ink pad. 2 layers of a diecut frame, in 2 sizes, frame the image of the sweet girl from the Christmas Cuties GG sheet.
The edges of the die cut frames are done in embossing powders. I used pop dots to raise the image of the girl. 2 coordinating Christmas Cuties on the sides of the tile. On the bottom is diecut trees in glitter blue. I finished off the tile with a gold diecut filigree under a blue glittered chipboard Peace.

Miniature Winter Animal Dioramas

As you can see, I adore the digital sheets from GeckoGalz on Etsy!
I just finished making a few of these miniature dioramas using The Frosty Garden set. The images on this sheet are just too cute.
I used a salmon can for a recycle project, as well as some masonite boxes from RetroArtCafe. these containers were all the perfect size for my mini winter scenes.
I 3D'd the animals and birds so they popped on the scene. Added bits of greenery and red berries, my homemade snow, wooden details that I painted, icicles, lights, acrylic snowflakes and snowy pinecones.



These would also work great in Altoid tins

Gypsy Fortune Booth

I think I musta been a gypsy in another life, as I love making Gypsy art.

.

The wicked Gypsy image from Gecko Galz on Etsy, was my focal point
Using a Masonite ATC Hutch Shrine Kit  from RetroArtCafe, I transformed it into a Gypsy Fortune Booth. 
I painted the inside of the booth using Art Alchemy Metallic Coral Reef
Added some black glass bead ribbon to the back
I 3D'd the gypsy image using foam dots
A crystal ball, ( large color changing marble, on a bead cap)
Miniature Tarot cards on the bottom 

A lantern and some word die cuts surround the Gypsy
I used designer papers to cover the back, sides and top.
Edged the sides in black dresden 
Your fate awaits is a paper cut with a black glitter paper behind it with 2 hand embellishments
The sides are decorated with Mystical charms and words
On the back is Oddities & a sign showing palm reading
