Here are some close ups.......
I love working with  Maja Design Paper, it is the softest paper I have ever worked with, so it distresses beautifully. Being a paper layer, I find the Collections easy to work with, plus you can combine Collections, as they also blend beautifully.... This corner shows distressed, hand stitched, paper layers using corrugated paper in the layers...
I primed the TH icicle, old wooden fence & chicken wire with clear gesso, the rest of the chipboard was primed with white gesso. I then painted all the chipboard,& the TH icicle, except for the chicken wire with clear crackle paint. Once the crackle dried I painted the white pieces with LuminArt-Heavenly White H20, & for the brown I used Shimmerz -Chocolate & Diamonds...
I also glued on some Prills on to the snow flakes & snow texture.

Glued some glass glitter into the chicken wire..


For the clusters I used 49 and Market Rustic Blooms, & Dusty Attic Chipboard (Snow Flakes & Pine Sprigs)...
Here are a few more close ups...






Thank you so much for taking the time to look.....Rachelle

I painted most of the chipboard with clear crackle, then once the crackle dried, I painted the pieces with the LuminArt-Heavenly White, or the liquid pearls-robins egg...I also painted the flowers with the heavenly white, for shimmer...
I applied the snow texture (using a brush), & sprinkled on glass glitter on to the wet glitter. I did this on to some areas of the chipboard & on to the flowers...
