Eileen Hull Collaborates with DCWV

For the month of November the Eileen Hull Design Team and DCWV are collaborating with a month long blog hop. This is my third piece using the fabulous papers from DCWV.
This week I created a shadow box and coordinated card combining DCWV papers and Eileen Hull's Twist and Style Tool and Eileen's Banners and Pennants Die.
I began with one of Tim Holtz shadow boxes and a piece of the DCWV paper. I began by painting the shadow box with a coat of Gesso and I then painted the shadow box with DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylic Medium Grey Value 6 paint.
I added a Relic piece onto a bottle cap.
I used Eileen's Twist and Style tool to twist two pieces of wire together and I then shaped it into a body for my angel. I then adhered the wire to a piece of the DCWV paper.
I cut out the body shape from the paper and then checked everything for size.
The star pennants were cut from metal foil tape and added to the body.
The pennants were trimmed to fit the body and I then added DecoArt Media Crackle Glaze to the cross Relic piece.
A wash of DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylic Raw Umber was added to the Relic pieces.
I created a coordinated card which has also been created using a piece of the DCWV paper.
I stamped the sentiment onto the decorative paper using Black Archival Ink and I then sponged Hickory Smoke Distress Ink over a bauble stencil to add a touch of shading.
I added a few shaded stars using Tim Holtz Stars Layering Stencil for an added touch to the background along with a few delicate splatters of DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylic Titanium White.
I added a wooden tag to the top of my shadow box and stamped the 'Christmas' sentiment using Tim Holtz Simple Sayings Stamp set.
I twisted more wire using Eileen's Twist and Style tool and added circles of wire to the bodice for further details.
Splatters of Titanium White paint were added to the shadow box.
I added a mirrored star to her hand.
A few more mirrored stars and Imagine and Believe embellishments were also added.
I also added twisted wire to the outside edges of the shadow box, once again twisted using Eileen's Twist and Style Tool.
The splatters of white paint and grey and silver touches add to the icy feel of this piece.
My fellow DT members have also made more pieces to inspire you along the hop. Pop along to Eileen's Blog for more details.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Tracy x x

The bitty trees are so festive and elegant, and the matching card is just the frosting on the Christmas cake!! Amazing my friend!!
