Decided to do a bit of mixed media today and make a little gingerbread house.
I made the little box with a sheet of Kraftcard and my Scorpal. The house measures 3 inches square around and is 6 inches tall.
Handmade some freckles (not sure what everyone else calls them, but in Australia they are a round chocolate button with hundreds and thousands on top.) I punched out 1 inch circles, added glue and then dipped them in some hundreds and thousands.
Now if you think glitter makes a mess, you haven't seen anything. Firstly I
used 3 different glues (it was really hot and humid here today and
things were not sticking as they should) in hindsight I should have used a texture paste or made
some royal icing, maybe next year. I will be sweeping up and wiping away hundreds and thousand for days.
The house, once constructed has been covered with patterned paper. I have added a doily, die cut windows and door. pieces from my stash including some
snowflakes, candy canes, lots of gems, snow and of course the freckles.
