(More Than Words DT - December Main Challenge)

This is a bittersweet post for me as it is my last More Than Words Main Challenge DT reveal. After a 5 years of co-managing this amazing challenge blog with some of the best scrapbooking ladies out there and designing with the cream of the creative crop from all around the world, I have decided to step down and give someone else an amazing opportunity and experience.

I will be taking a break from Design Teams as of January
as I feel like I need to resource myself in order to regain the passion
and inspiration of this fabulous hobby that I still love so much.
This obviously means that I will post a lot less for a few months,
but I have hopes that eventually I will be able to rekindle my creative spark!

But in the meantime, take a look at my MTW December main challenge project.

Word inspiration - REJOICE
Creative challenge - ANYTHING GOES

all the gorgeous creations of my fellow DT!

The word REJOICE (and it being December) made me of course think of Christmas. It is definitely 'the most wonderful time of the year' during which most families take joy in spending quality time together in peace, love and harmony.

For the ANYTHING GOES creative challenge, I decided to create a mixed media canvas on a snowflake shape wooden board. It does not look big in the picture, but it is 10 x 10 inches. And I added lots of sparkly snowflakes and festive poinsettias.

I found this snowflake shape wood board at my local dollar store a couple weeks ago
and immediately knew that I would use it for this challenge.
It was already painted white, but I added a couple more coats as well as some stenciling
with modeling paste and shimmery silver stencil paste.

I decorated with several different styles, sizes and brands of snowflakes.
Some of them I covered with white embossing powder, some with gold ink
and others I left bare. All the pretty seasonal flowers are from Prima.

I sprinkled silver glitter as well as gold microbeads on to my canvas.

The gold and the silver are definitely a festive combination!

I hope that you like this project and that you will play along with us at More Than Words!
