Home for the Holidays Blog Hop

Welcome to the Home for the Holidays Blog Hop!

Just some friends sharing holiday creations for your viewing pleasure :)

If you recall I recently won a box full of mixed media goodness from Cathy Frailey. Well this frame was included in that box. I knew when I saw it I had to do something fun with it and this is what I did...

It is a gold plastic frame that had a few broken bits. I trimmed the broken bits off and evened it up - some of the broken pieces were missing from one side so I cut it off the other side to make it look like that's how it should be.  To tone down the gold and give it a holiday touch I applied 2 coats of Nuvo mica mist in Fresh Pear. It really gave it a lovely color and shimmer. 

Next I filled each frame with a lovely nature themed vintage image from Gecko Galz using the collage sheets - The Frosty Garden and Nature's Christmas.  I just love the variety of images to choose from.

I wrapped each frame with antiqued silver mini garland which added to the lovely vintage feel of the frame.

I added several layered flower and bird pieces

As well as some tiny real pinecones scattered here and there.

Then topped the whole thing off with a large red bow!

Now it's time to check out the other lovely creations...

Merry Christmas Everyone!!!

I'd like to enter this creation into the Gecko Galz - In Dreams challenge...
My dream - a White Christmas but alas it's not looking good this year. So far they are saying we have more a chance for ice rather than snow :(  Keeping my fingers crossed!)
