We haven’t had much snow in Illinois, but we certainly have had more than our share of record cold temperatures! There’s no better way to beat the winter blues than crafting in a nice warm studio. I would much rather document the snow than be out in it, but the subject of my latest project sure looks like he’s having a great time! I went through my stash of vintage photos and found this shot of a little boy all bundled up in the winter of 1948. He’s the perfect subject for a snowy spread.

Glimmer paste is a really easy way to add sparkle to any project, especially when paired with a stencil. I chose Beautiful Bokeh to create a background of falling snow for this layout. Make sure to secure your stencil with some washi or paint tape. Using a small pallet knife, spread the paste evenly, and make sure that all the areas are filled in. Scrape off any extra paste before carefully removing the stencil. If you are doing a large are that overlaps, be sure to let your first area dry before laying down your stencil again.
Now that I have my background done, it’s time to assemble all of the other embellishments.
Thanks for stopping by! Wherever you may be, here’s wishing you a warm and cozy studio too.
