Sue's Season Journal

Here is the latest Circle of Friends journal. This one featured the Seasons of the year. We needed to pic our favorite season and make a layout using any format and embellishments.
Can you believe that after going through seven members that not one entry had been done for winter! Well, in truth I don't have a favorite season, I can think of pro's and con's to all of them. But since Winter is about to be over, this coming up Friday, that was fast, I decided to be the black sheep and highlight Winter.
A few weeks ago for my challenge blog One Powerful Hour I made a card about my favorite vacation, which was skiing, so I decided to play off of that card.
I think what I am most proud of is the background paper. It was a solid blue that I stenciled using various mixed acrylics snowflakes all over. I then spritzed the paper with a white shimmer. To me it really does look like snow.
The other feature that I think really makes this layout is the images inside my window. I clear embossed multiple layers and then stuck them in the freezer so they would crack, it looks like ice formed on the images.
I hope Sue enjoys my Winter layout...and I'm looking forward to the next journal
