Winter Decor

Hello Crafty Friends... I'm back again with some winter home decor made using my eBrush. I chose to incorporate the word "Peace" into my decor because who couldn't use a little more peace in their life?

Supplies I used for this project:
Picture Frame (12"x5")
eBrush with SN adapter head
Spectrum Noir Markers ( TB2, TB5, IG2, IG3, TN7, & TN8)
Sizzix Sparrow Die
Marvy Uchida Jumbo Snowflake Punch
Electric Die cutter
Personal Manual Die Cut Machine
Craft Knife
Stickles (Crystal)
Patterned Paper/Cardstock
Craft Cardstock
Glue or Adhesive

I first started by taking the mat that came with my frame out. I then used it as a template.

I layed it on my chipboard and used a craft knife to make a shape of the exact shape and size to fit my frame. 
I then adhered my patterned paper to the chip board and again trimmed with with my craft knife. I prepared this as my background and set aside.

Next I cut my bird. For this songbird I used a Sizzix sparrow die and cut out 2 birds, one from a song sheet paper and the other from chipboard. I layered the two and glued together. Then with my Ebrush I airbrushed the bird using the SN adapter head with Spectrum Noir markers in IG2, IG3,TB2, and TB5. Then I drew highlights using my white gel pen.

I freehand cut out a branch from craft paper and then ebrushed it using Spectrum Noir markers in TN7 and TN8. Then I embossed the branch using my Teressa Collins embossing folder. I also added crystal stickles over brushed on gesso for snow.

I cut out 3 snowflakes using my Marvy Uchida jumbo snowflake punch and highlighted them using my Spectrum Noir marker in TB2.

Using my electric die cut machine I used the free font Buffalo Nickel to cut the word peace out of printed card stock. I then ebrushed it using my Spectrum Noir markers in TB2 and TB5. I also made a shadow for my word it using a charcoal gray paper and adhered both word and shadow together. Then I glued all my individual pieces onto my prepared chipboard background from earlier.

Tah-dah... Beautiful winter decor!

Hope you enjoyed this project!
And, here's wishing you "Peace" for this holiday season!!
