December Calendar

Hello friends!  Welcome to my little spot.  Sit down and enjoy your stay!

It's Thursday and that means a new challenge at Mo's Challenge Blog.  Of course I had to play along!  This time around its Anything Goes.  The last 2 months I have created a calendar page for the first challenge of the month and that's what I have done today.
I used (again) Winter Fairy Halla.  I love this fairy!  Can you see how much sparkle he has this time??  After I colored him with my Prismacolor pencils I added fine glitter to his hat and pom poms, tinsel glitter to his leg warmers, silver Stickles to the icy swirls he is blowing and crackle accents to his wings!  WOW!  I love it!!
Here you can see the whole calendar.  I print the calendar on my pc.  The snowflake die at the bottom is from Memory Box (one of my favorites) and I added silver rhinestones to the center of most of them. The huge snowflake at the top is from Hobby Lobby.  I bought them last year and I only have 1 left now!  Behind it I used the last bit of a silver rhinestone swirl that has been hanging around forever.
Can you see the tinsel glitter on his leg warmers??  I love that!!
In this photo you can see the white tulle I used behind the image.  I melted the edges over the stove (so fun, but a little unpredictable!) then added dots of silver Stickles to the tulle.  I am really loving my calendar this month!!  I really need to get a board in my studio to post my most favorite pieces.

I am entering my calendar in the following challenges:
Mo's Challenge Blog - Anything Goes
Crafty Creations - Winter Scene
Flutter By Wednesdays - Anything as long as it has a fairy
