Aurora Wings Winter Wonderland Challenge using Winter Lullaby
It is time for another challenge over at the Aurora Wings Challenge blog. I loved this challenge because the theme is Winter Wonderland. Of course I decided to use Winter Lullaby, not because of the name, because of the owl. I love snowy owls. We actually have an owl living in our palm tree. I am not sure what kind it is because he takes off so fast when he comes out, but it is beautiful to watch him.
This top photo just shows you how big the pedestal that I put the image on. It is not the best photo because you can’t see the image or anything up close. So I will be sure to show you all of that.
I had a lot of fun making this project. I used some old paper, I think was from Stampin’ Up! years ago. It is the type of paper that you can color, stamp or do whatever and the white part of the paper will change to the color that you make. I sprayed it with Art Anthology Sky Colorations Spray. I was going to use one of their stencils with some of their Dimensional Mediums Pixie Sorbet, but the image was so big that you wouldn’t have seen it.
I have been completely obsessed with “popping” things up to give my projects more dimension. That is one thing I knew I wanted to do with this project as well. I was going to pop it up a little more than I did, but my I was so happy with my flowers I didn’t think I could get them like that again, so I left it haha! Do you ever do that with a project?
I think the flowers and the owl were my favorite things to color for Winter Lullaby. I wanted to use colors for the flowers that I thought would look good for the Winter Wonderland theme. I was thinking more cold, than Christmas. I am sure it would look just as good with Red.
I also added the little white glitter candy gems as I thought it would look like snow. I wanted everything to look like snow actually, all the way down to the ribbon. I think this is the biggest bow that I have ever made, besides the one on the wreath I made.
Here is a close up photo of the whole project except for the top spindle piece. Now you can see the whole thing up close. I just really love this project. I hope you like it as much as I do.
