howdy!!

Well peeps........a tad late with my Simon Says Stamp and Show post.......but had a last minute opportunity to travel to the "big" city to go Christmas shopping.....AND I TOOK IT!!!

SOOOOOOO......needless to say I am a tad bit late posting!! Hope you will forgive me!! Thanks!

This week at Simon Says Stamp and Show......the challenge is

Through the Looking Glass ~ Projects with Depth

I chose to create within a Configurations Box.......which can I be honest.....scared the bageeeberzs outta me!!! But that's always a good sign (at least I think so!!)

Many months ago, I can across a bag of Christmas Miniatures that I had purchased, who knows when. I put them in a safe spot (which I actually remembered this time....hehehe). And by golly this challenge was just the perfect time to pull them out!!


I covered part of my box with Molding Paste to make it look like snow......
(hoping that might entice the real stuff to fall so we can have a White Christmas!)


In the lower left corner, I spritzed the box with Green Patina Perfect Pearls Mist and filled a Clear bottle with Faux Snow and adhered to the box using Multi Medium.

In the top left box I gathered a bunch of doo dads.....wooden snowflake covered in Glue Gloss and sprinkled with Fairy Dust. I found an old mitten charm and tied some bakers twine to it, and one must always have a ruler to measure the coming snow!!


So, are you afraid of using a certain technique, medium, item or style??? I encourage you to embrace your fears and step outta your box and give it a shot!! I did and had THE BEST TIME creating!!!

Don't forget to check out the other DT blogs and link up you creation to......

Well you definitely conquered your fears about making a Configurations Box, Lynne! And I was glad to know that I wasn't alone in my apprehension about these shadow boxes! Super job - I love the use of the molding paste to simulate snow. And your little doodads are just perfect. Terrific holiday decor piece!

Hugs,
Linda
