Snowballs

Good morning crafty friends! Today I have a new image from Crafty Sentiments Designs to show you! This image is one of the October New Release images. We are playing a little game today! My friend, Celine and I, chose two elements to use on our projects and we want you to guess what they are! You can check out both of our projects over at Crafty Sentiments Inspirations! Take a guess and see if you can get our 2 secret elements correct! :)

I found this cute bucket from Hobby Lobby and knew it would make a perfect snowball holder for my new little image! :) Here it is finished and below is a short tutorial!


I first painted on some gesso.


Then I painted it with True Blue acrylic paint and spritzed with Dylusions White Linen.


Next I cut out some fun snowy hills and added glitter glue to the edges. 
And here is a close up of the image that I colored with copics. I used glitter glue on the snowballs and white flocking on his stocking hat. :)


And finished by adding Snowmarker to the gorgeous snowflake from Gina's Designs, some styrofoam "snow"balls, and some embellishments! Now my friend is all ready for some fun!
