Christmas With a Twist - BoBunny DT

The silly season is nearly gone :( a shame because I love this time of year.  The giving of gifts, family, the thrill of getting the perfect gift for someone, or better yet, making it ;)

This year I made a few things but one of the more tricky - well for me anyway - was being asked to make a childs name - decorating wooden letters.  Boys! I find them tricky at the best of times.  They don't come easy, a bit like mixed media lol.

The only requirement was blue.

So when is a Christmas range not a Christmas range?  When you take the plainer pieces of course!

Ived used the plainer blue pieces of paper from the Sleigh Ride Collection from BoBunny, and decorated them with glitter paste, stencils, stamps and buttons.

The close up shows the stars from the Cascade Stickable Stencils, with Copper Glitter Paste - quick and easy because the glitter dries so quick.  A few random stamping strips with the new Rough it Up stamps finishes it off.

The chipboard I first gessoed and then painted it with Chocolate Pearlescents.  Layered metal cogs and buttons finished it off.
Hopefully one little boy is very happy!

Merry Christmas to you all, and thanks for dropping by :)
