Christmas at Craft-Room

Wow - another Craft-Room challenge has come around again, can't believe how quickly the weeks are passing! Thanks for all your entries to our Home decor challenge and remember to check next week for our winner and top three. This week it's time to get our Christmas mojo on. Julia chose this theme and says about Christmas crafting - 'I think it’s about one of the only times of year when you can’t have enough of the glitz and bling.   So everyone feel free to create anything you like and don’t hold back on embellishments it’s Christmas.'
This is what I made -

After running a manila tag through a Tim Holtz embossing folder I rubbed a thin layer of gesso over the surface followed by distress inks in shades of blue. I added an embossed snowman, lace, bead gel, die cut swirl, sentiment and wooden snowflake with a few stamped snowflakes to finish off and of course some stickles for added sparkle.

I'm sharing this over at these challenges -

So over to you then - Remember that to be eligible for entry into the prize draw please post the Craft-room logo and link to your blog. Also we have amended the rules slightly this week and now ask that you submit a new project, with no back linking to previous posts.

Have fun -as always I look forward to visiting to see your creations...Esther
