Let it Snow!!! Well not quite yet!!

Why is it that I always have difficulty with 'snow' photos? Is it the printing? Do I put too much pressure on myself because the images are so special? Who knows, anyhow it makes it a load easier when manufactures like Fancy Pants create stories like 'Winterland' to give me a bit of inspiration, I needed it!!

So I used the backside of 'Snow Angel', for my base then embossed a few snowflake stamps in a clear embossing powder to add a bit more "oommph" to the paper. After curling the edges and inking with Pinecone, I used 'Below Zero' on the bottom 2/3 of the layout, also curling the edges and inking. I think the inking just helps lift the design when using such muted colours. After adhering my photo, I had cut the little mittens from 'Row of Mittens' to create my own embellishments and sewed them to the 2 top corners of the photo.

I then did a zig-zag stitch around a strip that I cut from the 'Strips' paper, embossed this and adhered under the photo, as a subtle title. I think sometimes its cool not to have a big title on your page, and with the muted colours of the layout, I thought a bit title might be a bit over powering. 

Using my trusty Cuttlebug, I cut a few snowflake shapes to add to the embellishments, and also the cute wee buttons from October Afternoon's Farmhouse range, the colours matched perfectly!

I backed my layout with Bazzil, my new thing, and journaled straight onto the patterned paper! Scary eh! And there you have it! A bit of Snow inspiration for you all, lets hope we don't need to use them too soon!!

Love Bee
