Altered Art Craft Hoop featuring Winter Playground with Irit


Hello My Dear Crafty Friend!

Welcome to my first post with the newly released Winter Playground collection.

We don't have any proper Winter here in Israel. As we say we only have Summer and a very hot Summer, but as I travel a lot I am used to snow and a real wintery landscapes and making a project  with this cutest possible winter collection was not a hard job after all.

So here is my Winter Playground altered cross stitching hoop and this is a pretty large one, about 9'' diameter.

 Winter Playground Altered Cross Stitching Hoop by Irit Shalom

First I made the strings with Baker's twine around the inside wooden circle. Then I closed the outside circles and painted around with BoBunny White 2 step crackle paste. I covered the hoop with a thin layer and as you can see the cracks are small and fit the size of the hoop.

The background cardstock circle was made from Winter Playground cardstock and then a hand cut half circle was added over the first layer (using Toboggan cardstock).

The whole piece was then covered with snowflakes made with Winter Fun stencil and BoBunny Sugar Glitter paste.  Then a few stamped images of doodled balls from Doodles stamp set were added with blue ink over the free spaces. Then the background was glued to the back of both hoops.

The snowman and the huge snowflake were hand cut from Noteworthy and Icicles cardstock and more glitter snowflakes were made over the huge snowflake with the same stencil and Turquoise Glitter paste.

Then both piece were glued between two layers of strings (it's really hard to see the inner strings layer on the photos).

Then Mandala was die cut from Frosty cardstock and small heart circle was die cut with one of Belief dies.

Both dies were glued over the string and embellished with a hand cut  girl doll.

 The boy doll hand cut image was added over the second side of the hoop.

The wooden snowflakes were painted with both Coral and Island Mist pearlescents and embellished with Double Dot Aqua jewels.

The whole piece was splashed with BoBunny Frost Glimmer spray and the only non BoBunny products was added as the date - 2018 (American Crafts old Thickers in the most perfect color and shape).
