Hills of snow...made of words

Hello there.  :-)  Back before Christmas, I had a thought:  what if I made a snowy scene from an old book page?


Snowflakes were added, as well as some teeny little sentiments from Papertrey Ink's Tag-Its #8.


I already had the Patterned Pines trees stamped and trimmed from a previous project, so they were included in the mix.  Topaz-colored gemstones decorate them.


It *is* rather dirty looking snow, though, isn't it?  Ha ha!



Stamps: Patterned Pines - Stampin' Up!; star - O Christmas Tree - JustRite; snowflakes, sentiments - Tag-Its #8 - Papertrey Ink Paper: vintage book page; kraft, Vintage Cream - Papertrey Ink; white Ink: Chocolate Chip, Handsome Hunter - SU; Antique Linen, Walnut Stain - Ranger Fibers: gold twine - SU; chocolate twine - American Crafts Accessories & Tools: topaz rhinestones - Queen & Co; gold sheer paint - Martha Stewart; Tiny Tags dies - Papertrey Ink
