Design Team Project #1 Featuring Teresa Collins ....

Good morning everyone ..... Gillian here to kick start our next design team collection (and oh what a beauty it is) .... firstly though a huge *Hello* to all our new blog followers thanks for stopping by and leaving us all such lovely comments.

The winner of last months random comment is #15 .....

which consides with a comment left by Butterfly aka Alison .... congratulations Alison please can you e-mail your details HERE

So onto this months collection .... we are using the beautiful Christmas Cottage Collection by Teresa Collins along with the co-ordinating stamp set.

My first project this week is using a Paper Mache Hanging Board (my fav item to alter) which is available from Snazzy's

I started out by painting the board with Fresco Paint (Toad Hall) then layering the following papers from the collection (Sentiments & Tiny Flowers).

I then added a layer of metal wire which was coloured using Fresco Paint (French Roast). I then stamped the "Christmas Tree" from the clear stamp set using Memento Ink (Rhubarb Stalk) onto a die cut from the 12x12 Double Sided Die Cut Accessories Sheet.

I die cut the Snowflake Rosette with the "Music" cardstock and attached the brad which is from the Decorative Brad Set.

The little metal snowflake which is available in a set from Snazzy's was highlighted using Treasure Gold.

To decorate the back of the board I have used Fresco Paints (Toad Hall & French Roast) with a Crafters Workshop Stencil & Treasure Gold to highlight.

Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment to let me know you have been here .... don't forget if you leave a comment on this first post you will be entered into the random comment draw which will be drawn on the 26th of November. Good Luck everyone.

I will be back later in the week with some more projects to share. TFL x
