Frosted Wonderland blog Hop

  • This month's challenge in I Double Dog Dare You to create is a Frosted Wonderland In the meadow, you can build a snowman, but the only question is will it be a one-dimension, two-dimension, or letting you creativity explode to do 3-d Wonderland... stay warm but we want it frosty . . . do you dare ????

    My project for you is

    I made a picture to put in a frame. It is 8 1/2" x 11". It will need a triple mat or a shadow box. I will get a frame this coming week.I printed off 3 of the snow scenes. I colored the trees on the first image. The buildings, trees, and people on the second image. On the 3rd image I colored the people, trees, and most of the buildings. It was not necessary to color every bit of the buildings as it would not show. I also did all the snow on the 3rd image. When the snow was dry I cut off the sky then using my ATG runner I glues a piece of cloud paper to the image. I cut out the images colored on the first 2 scenes. I then pop doted each layer to give a 3-D effect.

    The image is by Digi Darla. You can find it here

    The cloud paper is by Philadelphia group. The white paper is by Georgia Pacific.
