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


  1. Stunning creation with all the frosty shimmer. I like the ornate arrangement of papers and flowers. Fantastic design.

  2. Wow! This is gorgeous! All of the details you put into your layouts just astounds me. If you were to tell me that these designs just pop into your head, I would cry. So please don't tell me.

    A few of your posts ago, I mentioned that you inspired me to try some of the products you use. I've only gotten a few things so far like crackle, glitter paint, prills and glossy accents but I used them and cased one of your older layouts. If you're interested to see what I came up with:

    Thank you again for the inspiration.
