Wax, Paper & Acetate

Wax, Paper & Acetate


Woohoo! It's the weekend and we have another
awesome project to share with you, so go get
yourself a cuppa and make yourself comfy so
Claire can step you through her winter diorama

Cut four 5.5" x 5.5" squares of heat resistant acetate. 
Stamp the buildings in Archival ink onto the first acetate 
and heat emboss with black embossing powder.

Stamp and emboss images onto each acetate to build up a scene. 
I planned the positioning on copy paper first.

Stencil snowflakes in white paint onto the reverse of each acetate. 
Paint the candles and flames in the lanterns

Cut a 5.5" x 5.5" background in blue card. 
Use paper piecing to build up a path across the hills to the church.

Apply Alchemy Wax with a cotton bud in a circular motion
 to the reverse of the lanterns. 
Add a little to the embossed side of the acetate too. 
Add glitter glue to the branches, lanterns and hills

Cut a strip of card 5.5" wide and score it at 3/4 " intervals. 
Concertina it to create 10 zigzags and cut off the excess.

Emboss white card with a texture embossing folder and cut a square 7" x 7". Cut a 5" x 5" square from the centre to make a frame.
 Highlight the raised areas with wax.

Die cut snowflakes and stamp the matching design in wax. 
Apply the wax to the stamp with a sponge.

Stick the sides of each acetate to the folded card. 
Add the frame to the front and another 7" x 7" square to the back. 
Stick the snowflakes on the frame.

The snowy hills on the left hide a little electric tealight.

Did you enjoy that as much as I did?  Of course you did!

Thank you Claire this is stunning

See you all again tomorrow
