My last Christmas creation of the year is something very special I made at a workshop taught by my talented friend Brenda of Bumblebees and butterflies. I did not have time to finish it in November but I finally had a chance. It is a Christmas shadow box and it has pride of place in my fireplace.
We altered the frame using tissue tape, paints and stamping to give it a shabby chic distressed appearance. The backing was made with lots of layers, gesso and paints which made a gorgeous snowy sky
We added stamping and snow to some Tim Holtz die cuts and stood them in glittery snow which we made and spread on. I added some vellum to the lamppost to look as though it is lit.
and there are even snow dusted trees we decorated.
I just love my shadow box and I am not sure that I will be putting it away after Christmas.
Here it is again
Let's hope Father Christmas doesn't knock it over on is way down the chimney tonight.
I would like to enter my shadow box into the following challenges.

So there we are, this is my grande finale of all my Christmas crafting. I have so enjoyed sharing my creations with you this year and I want to thank you so much for all the encouraging comments you have taken to leave here. I loved reading every single one of them.
All is calm here and I would like to leave you with one my favourite Christmas sentiments;
Christmas - that magic blanket that wraps itself about us, that something so intangible that it is like a fragrance. It may weave a spell of nostalgia. Christmas may be a day of feasting, or of prayer, but always it will be a day of remembrance - a day in which we think of everything we have ever loved. ~Augusta E. Rundel
May you all find peace and joy at this magical time of the year.
