    The Snow Queen

    Filed under Art Projects, Collage Sheets, Rhonda Secrist Thomas, The Snow Queen Kit

    Note: most of the links on this post no longer work, as we moved to a new Web site in 2018. However, you can see the supply list items from Rhonda’s project that are still available on the new site.

    I feel a wee bit guilty here… showing you chilly colors and images while lots of you are facing REAL winter… but not much to do at this stage in my planning. I hope you’re reading this with your feet up, in front of a roaring fire!

    Before we dive into the new kit, new goodies, and new artwork there are still some sales from the past week of While the Cat’s Away Sales & Giveaways happening!

    The Snow Queen Kit

    We’re still in the wintry territory of last month’s kit, but this time with more intense colors, and sparkly snowflakes (3 styles of snowflake embellishments are in this kit).

    And, of course, snow queens! So many beautiful images have been painted over the decades to illustrate The Snow Queen by Hans Christian Andersen. I picked some faves for this new collage sheet (and note: 2 of the images are sized large enough to fill the entire area of the new 4×6 Shadowbox — and either of the cute window lids that fit that box… more on those below).

    Related to one of those shadowbox lids: a Taj Mahal Window Card is also included in this kit. (The window cards have the same size windows as the shadowbox lids, just in a flatter “greeting card” style.)

    Scrapbook Papers:
    THREE New 12″ x 12″ papers are included:
    Winter Playground Toboggan Scrapbook Paper (And see below for a related 6×6 paper pad)
    Aqua Blue Sponged Background Scrapbook Paper
    Lavender Fairy Sky Scrapbook Paper

    Artwork! See the wide photo below for TWO related projects by Design Team Member Rhonda Secrist Thomas!

    Rhonda made both a 3D shadowbox and a window card using the same collage sheet image (but with different embellishments). You can see the 3/4 view on the far right of the photos to see the depth of the 2 options.

    More info and photos in Rhonda’s blog post, and here’s a link to see all her supplies.

    More info about the new kit is on The Snow Queen Kit page. And remember to scroll down to the Giveaway on this page for a chance to win a kit plus lots of extras! Plus between here and there, a big bunch of pretty coordinating trims!
