* VeraLane Studio: Trash to Treasure ATC


Hello!

Today is a cold and snowy day here is the North West of England, so I thought I would share the ATC I made for the Vera Lane Studio January Swap.  
The theme this month is Trash to Treasure.

I used old magazine pages to make a quilted weave for the background, a wonky die-cut fir tree, some die cut waste (stars) and the silver 'snow' sentiment is recycled from a Christmas card. 


The hardest part was weaving the folded magazine paper to make the background - it is a little wonky, but I'm OK with that. Once it was made, I toned the colours with a white paint wash, then spritzed with Dylusions ink in Calypso Teal.  The edges of the ATC background are inked with black Ranger ink. Some modelling paste was applied to the bottom of the card to replicate snow and the wonky die cut tree and the word 'snow' were attached. 
The snowman image is from the Holiday Doodle Bundle set. He's coloured with Copic markers. I decorated the fir tree to cover up the creases with pink stars which were remnants from a banner die-cut that I used for another project. Some Stickles glitter was applied to the stars and the snow.



I hope you'll come along and play on Vera Lane. It's such a friendly, fun place to be!
