A Winter Wonderland

Greetings A2Z Fans!
I created a LO today for the June Challenge
Tracey hosted!
The challenge for June are the following:
At least 2 Winter pictures on your page
                                                 A2Z Scraplet
                                                 Texture paste
                                                 A hint of red
      And some recycled aluminum isn't this such a fun challenge!
       The aluminum had me stumped to find something because I wanted to find something unique or different! I decided to refurbish a round metal/aluminum tag. For the red I added the sequins, journal circle and twine, and the paste is on the snowflakes. For my chipboard I wanted it to look like ice since I was going for a Winter Wonderland look. After I painted it with Creative Inspirations paint I added Embossing enamel.
I used a heat gun to melt the embossing enamel and then I placed it
in the freezer to harden. Once the enamel was hardened I started moving
the chipboard letter to add the cracks.
Below you can see a close up of the crackling!

Here you can se a few of the cracks I did not add a lot because I only wanted a few. I only added  them to the dream word because I did not want to break the smaller letters.

Here's the A2Z Scraplets chipboard unfinished.

Not only having our daughter was dream come true for us but also that is the 1st time it has snowed on the coast in 30 years and it all happened when we brought our daughter home from the hospital! That made that day a little more special! It never snows on the coast! It was considered a freak snow storm that came from Canada with a cold front!
Thank you Tracey for hosting the fun challenge for June!
If you would like to join the challenge you have until June 30th!
When you join in on the challenge your name will be added to the drawing for a chance to win some amazing A2Z chipboard!
Thank you for stopping by the A2Z blog today!
