coming. Yep, I said it, and now it's full on here. We have been so lucky in our city as it hasn't really been cold. If you didn't know, I am from Winnipeg, Manitoba Canada. We are known across the country for our cold winters. We are known as Winterpeg. HA!
As I type this, it is snowing big fluffy flakes outside, and really, it is about time. As much as I don't like the snow, I really don't mind it either. It is just here so darn long!
Because it gets do darn cold, we don't actually venture outside enough to take photos most of the time. Winter photos are pretty rare here, which is pretty strange.
I managed to have one of my daughter on a "warmer" winter day last winter and decided to use it for a challenge on the Shimelle blog on "snowflakes"
I used the Frozen Windowpanes cut file from my digital cut file store - JustNick studio for this page. I like the modern rounded snowflake look and wanted to use that with some non traditional winter colors on my page.
You can see that I backed most of the cut file with various pink and blue toned papers, along with some vellum in spots too. I like leaving some empty spaces on cut files like this one, so that background pops through a little.
I added some tags and smaller diecuts along the top of my page, adding a title and some glittery asterisks from a Thicker set. They seemed to remind me of small snowflakes.
I really love how it all came together. Filling a background like this one is a little time consuming, but I love the result in the end.
I really must try to remember to get outside more this winter on the days that I am able ! Snow is quite pretty and I need to take advantage of that more!
