TJ Blogstravaganza - Framed Snowmen

For today's project, I've got another great framed piece of art to share with you. At least I'm getting a head start on my Christmas Gifts by participating in the TJ Blogstravaganza everyday!

I stamped my snowmen in Black Archival Ink on watercolor paper then colored my then using the Marker Water Coloring Technique from a past issue of the TJNL. Once dry, I painted my snowmen with Angel Wings Shimmerz.

I then cut my images using my nesties, layered my WC piece onto my Chocolate Chip piece. I wheeled the Christmas Chatter Wheel in Chocolate Chip onto my Baja Breeze card stock, cut with my nesties then layered onto my Chocolate Chip piece that I had already cut. Place your diecut Snowfake onto your base circles then trim the edges. Layer your snowmen image onto the base card stock. Then add your Bling around the outer circle. The bling was an afterthought, so I'm sharing with you both the before and the stepped up version of today's gift.

Wow! The frame is beautiful and it just 'called out' for your beautiful artwork. I haven't thought about framing some of my work as gifts... until now. Gotta go visit Kohl's and order some Shimmerz.
