Winter Tissue Box for Gina's designs

hi there and happy December! Lynne here with a home decor piece; I used a plain wooden tissue box cover from Michael's to create this project and lots of wintery chipboard pieces from Gina's, as well as papers from the Authentique "Cozy" collection. I decided to use a winter theme rather than a Christmas one so I can leave it out for a few months rather than just for the Christmas season!

I painted the mug, then heat embossed a swirly pattern onto it for texture and a bit of shimmer...I can just smell that hot cocoa....mmmm!

The snowflakes were heat embossed with Aged Ivory, then rubbed with a bit of gold gelato to warm the tone a bit.

I covered the beautiful bird piece with texture paste, then painted it before spraying with opaque white mist.

I love these mittens!! I want more of them to use on Christmas cards now after seeing how cute they look! I painted them with acrylic paint, then dabbed on a little taupe ink to give them a vintage look, added a strip from the patterned paper and popped them up a bit for dimension.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and hope you're having a great time creating seasonal projects too!
