Hallo everyone!

Today we have the last in our current theme
It has been a wonderful week for Snowflakes
and here is Karen Gist with her fabulous project
using the Tando Artroom 

Glue the pieces of the Artroom 
together but paint the background in 
Fresco Baltic Blue 
and, when dry, splash with
white acrylic before you add the
front section

Paint the rest of the Artroom in
Fresco Blue Oyster.
When dry, using a flourish stencil 
add some sparkle medium to the
sides, front and top.
Set aside to dry

Cover all the stars with a layer of gesso and
the cover them with Crystal Stickles.
Leave to dry
The little stars are from the centre of the
snowflakes and can be used too.

 Assemble the house, leaving the roof for a moment. 

Paint the house in Fresco antarctic and when dry 
rub around the edges lightly with Versamagic Sahara Sand. 

Put the roof through an embossing folder to give it some texture. 

Paint it using Fresco Stone and when dry rub
 a little of the Sahara Sand over the ridges. 

Glue to the house. 

Add doors and windows

Decide where your house will sit and draw a line around it on the base. 
Spread Sparkle Medium over the base but 
leave the area where the house will stand. 

Add texture by 'flicking' the medium with a pallette knife as it dries.

Take out the card from the Tando packaging
and paint sections with Blue Oyster and sand.
Stamp and cut out a selection of trees.
Attach to the Artroom using silicone glue
so that they stand out a bit.
Add a little Tando heart painted with
Blue Oyster to the roof of the house and add
some sparkle medium. 
Glue the house in place adding a
little tree

Add the snowflakes to the top of the
Artroom as shown.

I thought afterwards that I could have added
little battery powered lights to this piece.
Too late for me but not for you.....

Materials used
