The Magic of Christmas

Merry Christmas from blogland! Here is a configurations book I made for my mom and dad; it was really fun to make and to decide what to put in each section and basically it was any excuse to cover the entire thing in as much glitter and sparkle as possible!

The cover is painted mostly gold and a bit red inside with some added gilding flakes and chipboard letters painted and then some inka gold in red and them some glitter paint and inside some gilding wax and then I used red sparkle medium through a stencil to make the stars. The snowflake is 3d printed.

Inside the snowman is 3d printed and then painted; then the little tree and wreath I inked and then added some white paint to the tree for snow. Then I used some snowtex type stuff. Wooden letters to spell out noel with some berries. Mini bells, string beads, a 3d printed angel; the little green house is cut out on the cricut, mini pretend lights, a wooden 25th December decorated with gilding wax, glitter in tiny bottles; another little bell; a gingerbread man which is patterned paper and then loads of added glitter and sparkles. And it all couldn't have been done without loads of heavy body gel medium to stick everything down.
