Its the second Wednesday of August and today we are bringing you a Snow Kissed collection from Heartfelt Creations. I love the spruce trees in the collection so much that my first project is full of these snow covered beauties.
I created a winter scene with the horse drawn carriage and the trees, i love how it turned out
the snow is actually liquid applique, then heat set to puff up.
