It's getting closer!

It's hard to believe that in three weeks the big day will be here! It only seems like a couple of weeks  have gone by since summer!!
My piece for Clare Curd Crafts DT blog this week is a mixed media wall hanging, and with Christmas been so close I made it a little seasonal.
I used a piece of mount board as my base, and firstly covered it in tissue paper to get some good texture. This was then coated in a layer of gesso, and then lots of layers of acrylic paints. Some stamping was added and some bubble wrap-applied paint.
Then I added some areas of Flitter Glu and Mega Flakes in Royal Peacock

The small snowflakes and the robin are from the Winter Critters stamp set
My girl is paper pieced and then paint added to give some depth.

How cute is that robin

See you next week x
