This week I wanted to complete my January page and had an idea in mind which fitted well with the felt theme. I had no felt in my stash so went out and bought a piece of white on Sunday at the local nursery craft shop. I thought it was a bit thin! I remember felt being quite thick and chunky.
My idea for January was "January brings the snow, it makes your face and fingers glow". The idea was to cut snowflakes from the felt, I tried but had no success I did'n't have a die which would cut through, I really needed something a little more substantial. In a flap I scoured the craft room to see what I had hiding in boxes and found some white flock, no idea when I bought it, or for what.
Dark blue card was embossed with snowflakes and a white ink pad rubbed over the surface to highlight, some of the snowflakes were covered with flock. The New Year stamp (not sure of the make) was stamped and embossed with clear powder and coloured with DI, the words were printed on the computer and a doodled border put round to match the stamp, this was coloured with DI too. The calendar was embossed with a few small snowflakes and edged with DI. To finish three snowflakes were covered in flock, the stamp and words had flock added to (I hope) look like snow.
Don't know whether I will use the flock again it went everywhere, I will be dusting for days!
