Winter Wonderland Woodland Wall Hanging

Winter Wonderland Woodland Wall Hanging for RRR Sparkle & Shine Challenge

RRRChallengeBadgeHello, Friends!

December is here and it’s time to Sparkle & Shine with a brand new  Really Reasonable Ribbon Challenge!  Growing up in New England, during the month of December you could pretty much count on the ground being covered with a glistening layer of freshly fallen snow.  Icicles hung from rooftops and we spent our leisure hours making snowmen, building snow forts and sledding down our big hill.  Our favorite time to play outside was at night, when the light of the moon and the stars shimmered off the surface of that blanket of  snow.  Somehow, we didn’t seem to mind the cold at all, and we would whoop and laugh and race down that big hill for hours at a time while the frosty air added winter roses to our cheeks and noses.  All these happy childhood memories inspired me to create a Winter Wonderland Wall Hanging with a Woodland theme.

Kathy by Design/Carta Bella Winter Wonderland Wall Hanging 01You all know how much I love my winter birds, so using these papers from Carta Bella’s Winter Wonderland paper collection was a natural choice.  And, there’s loads of sparkle and shine in this pretty little wall hanging.

Carta Bella Winter Wonderland Wall Hanging 06I layered glitter cardstock with dark blue burlap and blue canvas ticking then added die cut and embossed layers made with silver foil cardstock.  A wintry white hanger is all dressed up with Random Stars Silver Satin Ribbon and some glittery white clothespins.  I love all this scrumptious sparkle and shine!

Carta Bella Winter Wonderland Wall Hanging 04My bow cluster began with a shimmering double layer, double loop bow tied with Light Silver Satin Ribbon with a Grosgrain Edge. To capture the feeling of the woods on a starry winter night, a second bow was tied using Random Stars on Light Silver Satin Ribbon.  Then I added a creamy white magnolia blossom , some white bead/berry sprays.and silver spiral stamens to the mix.

Carta Bella Winter Wonderland Wall Hanging 05More magnolia blossoms, more light silver satin ribbon and more silver spiral stamens adorn the top of the wall hanging.  It really does feel like a true Winter Wonderland sparkling in the light of the moon and the stars.

Carta Bella Winter Wonderland Wall Hanging 06Now it’s your turn to join the fun!. Create your own Sparkle and Shine project using ribbon or trim and link it up at the Really Reasonable Ribbon BLOG where you’ll find more inspiration from the RRR Design team as well as the challenge rules. I can’t wait to see what you make!

    This is really a sweet little wall hanging, Kathy. Love the shabby chic, frosty white washed feeling of this piece. Love the little white hanger and clothes pins. You are a master at layering papers, flowers and ephemera.
