In the Cold and Frosty Air

It’s been quite a while since I’ve been scrapping. The January Scrapbook Kit and Mood Board from Tres Jolie got my mojo humming again!

The colors and waterfall image, along with the “Winter Wonderland” twist, put me in mind of a photo that I’ve scrapped before: a Winter view of Buttermilk Falls in Le Roy, New York.

As usual, I kept it simple, starting with inked and layered matting with some packaging between the layers to add dimension.

My flower cluster was put together using flowers from 49 and Market and Little Birdie, taking advantage of the colors that matched my photo perfectly.

I embellished this with a spray of die cuts made from plain white cardstock and colored with a variety of Finn waxes. I used a stipple brush to apply these, and I love the resulting mottled effect.

Using a couple of punches, I cut some circles from the scraps left from the matting and glued them to Art Pebbles from my stash. These were scattered here and there around the top.

I finished by selecting a sticker from a Tim Holtz collection. “In the cold and frosty air” makes a perfect title for this pretty winter scene.
