you get an idea and it just has to be done regardless of other things going on around you? Well I looked at Tim's blog last week and he had a link on there to thegentlemancrafter and I looked at the lovely robot on there and suddenly had the inspiration to use some of my configuration boxes into a snowman (how I got to a snowman from a robot I will never know - but get there I did) - so for the past 5 days whenever I have had a few spare minutes to sit in my craft room I been working on this:
So, where is the advent calendar? I hear you ask, well if you turn the whole thing around you get this:
The Snowmen are from a sizzix long die and coloured with promarkers, I have doodled around the edges to define them and added pom poms here and there and used bling for their eyes and buttons. The numbers are made from Tim's Upon a Time die and covered with glossy accents so they are nice and shiny. The other bits decorating the boxes are from Tim's Festive Greenery die with some bits finished off with pearls and bling. All the boxes, except the hat one, are painted white and inked with iced spruce - the hat is just painted black with one of Tim's Vintage Laces around the edge which is inked with Tea Dye.
Hope you like him! Now just need to go shopping and get all the bits and pieces to go in him!
Thanks for looking :) Oh and I won't be setting a fortnightly challenge today - sorry but too much going on at the moment! thanks for understanding.
