Christmas in July

Well not really...
It was Christmas at Christmas time...
I am just now posting it...
I have fallen behind on my posts some..
But still wanted to share with you so
Held this one for Christmas in July ....
Pretty smart uh..

I taught my freinds a new texture
and we made light bulb snow men

the examples

Body Parts Done

Tried some fun textures

Glitter and more glitter

Some funny Noses

and more noses

The noses were a big hit..hehehe!

Check out hte fun snow men

Here is my original snowman
I just love him lots
Gave as a gift to my
friend Danna

Here is the secret to the fun snowman texture you will need

1 can white spray paint
 Small amount of sugar

You also will need to be in a place you can spray paint
And have a tub to sprinkle sugar

You see you spray paint the bulb, while still wet,
 drizzle the sugar
all over the surface
Let dry then totally coat with spray paint again
Let dry..
and you have this wonderful snow effect.
The sugar is sealed in so no rodents will come for it

Can be used on all kinds of surfaces too
Try it out for yourself and see
Then come back and share it with me

Happy Christmas in July

Your snowmen are darling. Great texture technique. Are you sure the sugar doesn't attract pests?
