Let It Snow

Hey here! I'm happy you are following along our week of mittens.  Here at Linnie Blooms we believe in staying warm, I sure hope you are doing the same. In my state winter is so up and down, you never know when the temperature will randomly drop.  As you will see below, my son is holding snow with no mittens because it snowed and melted before we could get home to get them.

Show me the mittens you say, let's get started:

I used the large mittens on this LO.  These mittens were just the right size to use on a LO that incorporates two pictures. May I add how much I L.O.V.E. these mittens and that I really wanted to hoard them because they are so pretty.

To alter the mittens I used two different ribbons, color mist, light molding paste and, a mask to create the design. I also added some Martha Stewart glitter in snow.

For my second project, I used a 5X7 canvas and covered it in burlap to coincide with my previous stocking project. The mittens used are a bit smaller than the mittens used on the above LO.

For the mittens I used fine glitter to give them a soft and fuzzy look and adhered lace and a dainty little jingle bell to the wrist section.

As cute as these mittens are I must confess, I created two little bows that were suppose to be added on the wrist right below the bells...well, when I began adhering everything down, I totally forgot to add the little bows.  They would have been so cute along with the bells!

I sure hope this has inspired you to start creating your holiday memories and decor.

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to join us tomorrow for more inspiration.
