Faux Snow Snowflake Ornament
I started by painting the snowflake white with acrylic paint. After that dried I sprayed the front side with Helmar V2 Vellum Adhesive. While the adhesive was still wet, I placed the snowflake on a clean sheet of paper and sprinkled on the Faux Snow.
I shook off the excess snow and put it back in the jar. Then I sprinkled the ornament with Art Glitter Ultra Fine Glitter - Pearlescent - #183 Blue Angel. The glitter filled in any spaces on the adhesive that the snow had not filled.
Then I used purple and blue printed card stock to stamp "Let it Snow" and glued it to a purple backing. I used Art Glitter Designer Dries Clear Adhesive (DDCA) to attach the card stock to the snowflake. I finished with a swirl of rhinestones from Want2Scrap. I used a little of the DDCA on the areas of the rhinestone swirl that extended over the "snowy" surface.
Thanks for stopping!
