Tando Creative Sponsor Spotlight #2

Hello! Lys here, with a project made with our generous sponsor this month:

For this special season I remained dreaming of a natural Christmas, and I imagined a rustic village under the snow (as it probably won't be the case of mine this year!);

The snow has completely covered my little village this morning...

and as nobody has opened the windows yet, snow remains on the edges...

This house is the older one, with its rustic walls.

Yesterday the sun was shining, so the previous snow melted along the roof, but the cold night froze everything.

So this is what I started with: 

I covered the corner base with the plaster strips and let dry. I painted all the cardboard elements with gesso, and painted the doors ,windows  and roofs with brown acrylic paint.

I covered the base with snow... can you guess what I used for that?

And I inked the houses walls with different inks in a brown palette (the oldest house had a coat of structure paste before).
I also added wooden stars to my village, staying in tune with Trish's challenge, "Wish upon a star": you have still time to enter, and have a chance to win!

Tando Creative provides so many different kits like this one, that you will certainly find the way to express your creativity.

Happy crafting!
