Warm Wishes Snow Scene – by Darsie Bruno

There are pretty much no words to adequately describe today’s project by Darsie — when I first saw it I think I had a “jaw-dropped deer in the headlights look” to my face — LOL!!!  I just didn’t know where to look first and then I couldn’t quit looking as there was so much detail everywhere.  Darsie created this 9 x 12″ item of home décor using a canvas backwards to create a shadow box effect.  The project is created entirely with Spellbinders dies (which are ALL on sale).  She added a bit of painted detail with the tree trunks and a whole lot of snowy glitter and glitz.  I really appreciate that Darsie took so many close up photos.  If one may not have the time to recreate this project in its entirely, you could certainly take any of the individual ideas and use them on your cards or scrapbook pages.  Be prepared for a real treat!  Let’s get started:


This is the full 9 x 12″ project.  AMAZING!

Darsie used an icicle and snowflake die here, accented with glitter and rhinestones.

The sentiment is from a JustRite set — there are even sparkles around the die cut frame!
