Day 4: Sneak Peek - Snowman Love


I'm back for our fourth day of sneak peeks for 2RedBananas.com's new line of stamps. This time I did a layout using the Snowman Love set (along with some of the January Journaling Spots). Due to a freakish snowfall in southeast Texas, I actually have snow photos.

I used K&Company's Christmas Cheer paper for the background and drew a line around the edges with a white pen. I adhered another strip of patterned paper with rick rack along the top and bottom. I also adhered Dewdrops along the strip. I painted all of the chipboard with white puffy paint by Tulip and sprinkled Twinklet's Diamond Dust on before puffing it up. The photo layout is actually a collage I printed from Photo Shop with a couple of spots left blank. On the blank areas I adhered patterned paper. I stamped the snowman from the set in various poses, colored them with watercolor pencils, cut them out, then adhered them with pop dots onto each of the squares. I stamped the journaling spot onto patterned paper and cut it out, then pop dotted it onto the layout.

This set was really fun for me because I miss snow (being a displaced Detroiter), and usually never have a chance to use snowmen, snowflakes, etc.

  8. Wendy, I love your layout, the way you let the snowmen peek through at different angles...but I enjoyed your pictures just as much! I'm originally from Lake Charles, so seeing snow in my neck of the woods is an interesting and rare pleasure indeed!
