DecoArt Mixed Media Winter Challenge . . .

Excited to be sharing my first post of the new year with my DT Winter Wonderland project for the
 This challenge will be a winter theme full of blue and purple hues and maybe even some snow! 
The DecoArt Mixed Media Design Team have been busy creating some great inspiration pieces that have been featuring daily since December 28th over on the
 The challenge will be open for entries on December 28th and close on January 29th.
My project started with one of the
 Prima Mechanical Pendant caps 
air dry clay.
Just roll some into a ball and press it into the cap with your fingers.
Roll out a little more and create your house shape, adding a chimney and hearts along the way.
Rough up the back of the shapes with something sharp, add a touch of water and fix in place.
Leave to dry overnight or if your impatient like me, pop it on a tile over a radiator for a about an hour.
Once it`s turned white your good to go with the paints of your choice.
 Once the paint was dry I knew it needed some texture so....
 out came the 
Media Matte Medium
a spoonfull of Finnabair micro beads 
to mix together.
 I applied it to either side of the house, at this stage it looks really white but don`t worry as you can see this dries really clear!
Some waxed thread and a few silver stars to complete my 
" Little hoose on a frosty night in Scotland."
So now it`s over to you, let your imagination go wild!
 I can`t wait to see what you create for our
 remember to pop on over to the
for all the details!!!

Thank you so much for looking
Have fun
