Winter Wonderland

This is a little TWIDDLEYBITZ sleigh project that I have been working on.  It's been done in a winter wonderland theme and is full of Twiddley loveliness and Manor House Creations flower beauty.
The sleigh was first constructed - it comes flat packed and is very easy to assemble.  It has been painted white with a stippled finish for a little shabby texture.  While the paint was wet, DECOART fine glitter was applied - if you happened to pop by the Twiddleybitz booth at Paperific recently you may have picked yourself up some of this.  Love it - super fine and so sparkly.
A funky attic house was constructed and sits inside on a bed of snow laiden foliage - Aleene's True Snow was used to replicate the snow.  This was also available at the booth at Paperific.  The consistency reminds me very much of buttercream icing.  It's smooth to apply and dries firm but not hard - it has a slight rubbery feel to it.  It also dries pure white in colour.
The attic house was decorated with papers from the Prima Romantique collection - I used a 6" x 6" paper pad for this.  Prima resin was added to create a little architectural delight.
A 3 D lamp and fir tree were constructed from Twiddleybitz elements and a garden arch sits at the back.  Manor House blooms adorn the sleigh along with holly flourishes and Melissa Francis resin bird on a branch.
