Oh Christmas Tree

Welcome to DECEMBER , Wow not long to go now
until we are in holiday mode. This week its my
turn to decorate the tree. Our hop this week starts

I had this Idea of making my TREE all sparkly
and white, so I pulled out all of my glitters
and things all shiny

I used some of these items not all of them.
I started with the basic Tree, (can be seen here ) . First I used
Gesso to seal it , then painted it white using acrylic paint .

Once it was dry I used a clear gell medium to adhere the tiny
stars ,once I had done a portion with stars, I would cover the
area with Tim Holtz rock candy glitter.

I continued doing this until both pieces were covered on both

Now at this point every thing was going along fine, BUT!!!
I didn't think this idea through properly, as when I went to
slide the two , together it was tough going, because of the
extra thickness of the glitter .I had to use a little bit of
brute force lol but it did go together in the end.

 I also added some snow drifts to make it look
Here we have Snowy and Gwiny putting up the
