White on White Snowy Forest Scene

Good Monday morning.  I love making white on white projects with a few touches of color.  I recently made a fall card for my CLASSroom post using the Impression Obsession Tree Frame  and adding colorful leaves.  My project today takes white on white to a new high for me because I added even more white with Polar White Flower Soft. I love how it added a soft touch to the sweet scene with the mother and baby deer from the Deer Trio. .

I started by painting Crafter’s Pick Ultimate Glue on the branches with an old paint brush and applying the flower soft. I did this in steps and painting small areas at a time so my glue wouldn’t dry out before I could get the flower soft on.  I did a tutorial back in September showing the steps of applying the glue and flower soft to the tree branches and how I created the frame and scenery around the tree.  You can find the tutorial here

Note:  Don’t use a good brush to apply the glue.  The glue does wash out with water but it isn’t so great for the bristles. I actually attached my old brush to my bottle of glue with a rubber band so I would remember to use the same brush over and over.  I am absent minded when crafting and reach for the first brush I come to.  LOL!  I’ve ruined a few good ones by mistreating them.

While the tree was drying I attached snowy ground pieces to the back of the frame with 1/8” double stick tape.  I then painted on the glue to both sections and applied flower soft.  Patience is not my strong suit so I whistled the Jeopardy tune while everything was drying and cut the deer, fir sprigs and birds and embellished the baby deer’s neck with foliage and berries.  When everything was dry I applied 1/8” double stick tape  to the back of the frame and attached the tree frame. I applied thin pieces of mounting tape to the back of the frame and tree trunk and attached to the card base.

Note:  I had to cut 3/4 of the tree frame border off to make it fit to the outer frame.

Here’s a closer view of the branches.  I added the red birds to add interest to all that white.

Here’s a closer view of the deer, snow banks and foliage. I attached the deer to the card base with mounting tape.  I tucked the foliage in behind the snow layers and around the deer and attached with glossy accents. I finished by painting glue on the foliage and applying the flower soft.  I didn’t apply the glue and flower soft before attaching the sprigs to the scene because I knew my fingers would damage it in the process.

I almost colored the deer as well but thought they made a stronger impact on the scene in white even though they are slightly lost with the tree branches behind them. 

I hope you have a great week and don’t work too hard preparing for your Thanksgiving dinner.

    “A Thing of Beauty is a Joy For Ever” by John Keats, 1795-1821. I dedicate this to you to try and express how I feel about the work and joy of your blog.
    A thing of beauty is a joy for ever:
    Its loveliness increases; it will never
    Pass into nothingness; but still will keep
    A bower quiet for us, and a sleep
    Full of sweet dreams, and health, and quiet breathing.
    Therefore, on every morrow, are we wreathing
    A flowery band to bind us to the earth,
    Spite of despondence, of the inhuman dearth
    Of noble natures, of the gloomy days,
    Of all the unhealthy and o’er-darkened ways
    Made for our searching: yes, in spite of all,
    Some shape of beauty moves away the pall
    From our dark spirits. Such the sun, the moon,
    Trees old, and young, sprouting a shady boon
    For simple sheep; and such are daffodils
    With the green world they live in; and clear rills
    That for themselves a cooling covert make
    ‘Gainst the hot season; the mid-forest brake,
    Rich with a sprinkling of fair musk-rose blooms:
    And such too is the grandeur of the dooms
    We have imagined for the mighty dead;
    All lovely tales that we have heard or read:
    An endless fountain of immortal drink,
    Pouring unto us from the heaven’s brink.
    Nor do we merely feel these essences
    For one short hour; no, even as the trees
    That whisper round a temple become soon
    Dear as the temple’s self, so does the moon,
    The passion poesy, glories infinite,
    Haunt us till they become a cheering light
    Unto our souls, and bound to us so fast
    That, whether there be shine or gloom o’ercast,
    They always must be with us, or we die.
    Therefore, ’tis with full happiness that I
    Will trace the story of Endymion.
    The very music of the name has gone
    Into my being, and each pleasant scene
    Is growing fresh before me as the green
    Of our own valleys: so I will begin
    Now while I cannot hear the city’s din;
    Now while the early budders are just new,
    And run in mazes of the youngest hue
    About old forests; while the willow trails
    Its delicate amber; and the dairy pails
    Bring home increase of milk. And, as the year
    Grows lush in juicy stalks, I’ll smoothly steer
    My little boat, for many quiet hours,
    With streams that deepen freshly into bowers.
    Many and many a verse I hope to write,
    Before the daisies, vermeil rimmed and white,
    Hide in deep herbage; and ere yet the bees
    Hum about globes of clover and sweet peas,
    I must be near the middle of my story.
    O may no wintry season, bare and hoary,
    See it half finished: but let Autumn bold,
    With universal tinge of sober gold,
    Be all about me when I make an end!
    And now at once, adventuresome, I send
    My herald thought into a wilderness:
    There let its trumpet blow, and quickly dress
    My uncertain path with green, that I may speed
    Easily onward, thorough flowers and weed.

  9. Oh, Kittie! I can only imagine how long it takes to create such a work of art!!!! I love the depth, the 3D look, so much texture, and I can hear the crunching of the icy snow as the deer walk! I am off to watch your tutorials and pray something rubs off on me. With love ♥
