From Our Home To Yours


It's Anja here. Today I have a bigger project for you. As one of the last projects for this year I made a Christmas scene that will decorate my craft room in this holiday season. I had a frame in my shelf for quite some time and decided to use it for my project and give it a winter touch.

For this project I used:
- Cottage Cutz dies (Farm Truck w/Tree, Build A House Set 2, Build A House Accessories, Tree, Christmas Trailer, Fireplace w/ Accessories),
- Distress Inks and Oxides,
- black card stock for background (26x21 cm),
- white card stock for die cuts,
- white acrylic paint,
- brush,
- sponge,
- plastic stencil (bricks),
- silver pigment ink,
- white pigment ink,
white picture frame (20x25 cm),
- pencil,
- black pen,
- scissors,
- paper glue.

First I cut all the pieces. I cut additional pieces for the inner side of the windows and door. I colored it with yellow.

Next I colored the parts of the house. I used plastic stencil to make it look as it's build out of bricks.

Then I colored all the other pieces and glued it together. I used white acrylic paint and a sponge to color around the edges to look like snow (not photographed).

The I made the background. I used black cardstock and colored it with blue Oxide inks and white pigment ink. For the finish I splashed it with acrylic paint to look like snow is falling.

And then I cut the bottom part of the scene. I cut the snow ground out of the white card stock. In the end I just adhered all the pieces together and inserted the scene in the frame.

And my project was done.

That's all from me for today. I wish you all a Merry Christmas. I hope you can spend it with people you love.

See you again next Sunday for my last project in 2019.
