A Christmas Winter Wonderland with Trudi Harrison PLUS VIDEOS

"Christmas Winter Wonderland: Dwelling 1"

 Hi Everyone,
Trudi back with you today sharing some more 2Crafty Chipboard inspiration. This month
 I have gone beyond the page with Christmas winter wonderland inspired projects.
Our Christmas's here often are quite warm with zero chance of snow - one day
 I hope to travel & to experience a 'White Christmas'.   In the meantime, I will keep
 dreaming of a white Christmas.
These quaint little dwellings would make a sweet table centre to any table.

For my first project, I have created a 3 dimensional house and created a pretty winter scene with 2Crafty loveliness.


 The dwelling was created with 2 of the houses from the Houses set. The two other walls were created by tracing around the house with 4 windows and cutting out from chipboard/box board. The walls were adhered together with hot glue and then covered with patterned paper.
The dwelling sits on a bed of winter foliage including branches trimmed from the large
tree from the Christmas Tree Set and Winter Twig Branches. 


A decorative facade was added to the front and along the roof ridge with one of the
 pretty Lacey Borders (set 1).
The chipboard was painted with a coat of Dina Wakley White Gesso and snow accents
 were added with 'Fantasy Snow'.  Super fine crystal glitter was sprinkled over the top
whilst the media was still wet.
A trimmed the  Ornate Fence tip decorates the front porch roof.


Trimmed brick elements from the 'Brickwall' add texture to the house walls. A larger  
Lamp Post sits behind the house with trimmed Ornate Fence pieces added to the 
sides and steps leading up to the front door.
A base was created for the house to sit on from chipboard/box board and an empty ribbon 
spool to create a little elevation. Another Lacey Border was affixed around the outer edge.

Continuing on with the Christmas winter wonderland theme, I have created a larger
dwelling to add to the village.  This time I used a Tim Holtz Bigx Die to create the
 house along with lots of 2Crafty loveliness incorporated to create the scene.  

"Dwelling 2"

Once again, a bed of winter foliage was added to the 'ground' with  
Winter Twig Branches. The branches painted white with accents of
 'Fantasy Snow'. A little deer (from the Deer Set) frolics in the snow.


The house walls were accented with trimmed bricks from the Brickwall piece.  


A Fur Christmas Tree sits behind the house and lamp post. 


Three dimensional elements were created with Lamp Posts and Winter Twig Branches
A trimmed post from the Ornate Fence was added near the top of the lamp post and
 a trimmed tip added to the top. 
Trimmed branches from the Christmas Tree Set were tucked into the floral 
arrangement on the lamp post.
A larger base was created for the house to sit on from chipboard/box board and an empty 
ribbon spool to create a little elevation. Another Lacey Border was affixed around the outer edge.
