Perfectly Imperfect

Today begins our first challenge of the year at Frosted Designs.  I am the host and I picked White as a Snowflake (snowflakes, snowmen or white on most of project) as my challenge.  

I planned on scrapping photos of Tanner playing in the snow, but twice we were supposed to get snow and both times we just got a dusting.  I took a different approach comparing snowflakes to people - no two are alike! 
Meet Owen Henry Haan - my newest daycare baby!!  He was born in September and will join the daycare on Monday.  He is the fourth Haan child to be in my daycare - I can't wait to snuggle this one!
I started by cutting out three snowflakes out of an overhead transparency sheet and using it as a stencil for my modeling paste.
I used a pallet knife to spread the paste and peeled off the stencil.

I sprinkled the snowflakes with Pearl Glass Glitter before it dried. 
I needed a journaling tag.  I used this wood piece and softened the color with gold gelatos and Heidi Swap gold color shine.  I used a sponge to smooth out the color.  I later used the same sponge to ink my white papers. 
I wanted to do the same thing only in white to the chipboard snowflakes and swirl.  I ended up using a bit of liquid glue to adhere the glitter to the chipboard.
I love the title as we all are Perfectly Imperfect!  I cut the title with my Silhouette Cameo. 
Here is a close up of the snowflake made out of molding paste and glitter. 
And here is a close up of the chipboard snowflake.
This layout ended up nothing like I was planning - sometimes those are the best projects!!

Happy 2015!  If one of your goals/resolutions is to scrap more memories - be sure to join us for our challenges every other Friday!!!
