Sleigh Bells Ring....



Well, here we are in the last full week of November!! Eeek!! 
Anyone ready for December??!!  I'm so not...but I at least have a decorated sleigh! :)


The sleigh is from Tando Creative...'flat packed' and made from chipboard, and then I've altered it... inspired by the ultra talented, Mr Andy Skinner.













I have used many DecoArt Media Line paints, Crackle Glaze, Crackle Paint, Texture Paste,
Weathered Wood,
Tando Creative Sleigh, Merry Christmas, Stockings and stars...
IndigoBlu Script stamp,  Ruby Slippers paint...
Archival Sepia Ink pad...


I had hours of fun with this project...thanks for taking a peek :) 

I'm entering this into:

Anything But Cute - It's Ornamental 
Mixed Media World - Anything goes



Happy Crafting

Holy cow Lydia, this is pure genius!! What an amazing decoration and I just love that you used traditional red accents!! The crackle texture is incredible and really gives your sleigh a vintage look. The gears are such a unique embellishment, not one I would normally associate with Christmas, and yet they look completely natural and totally festive on your project, well freaking done!! I love it!

Thank you so much for joining us at Anything But Cute for our 'It's Ornamental' challenge! Hugs, Pamellia DT :)

Geez Loiuse, Lydia! I am thrilled with your little sleigh! You ARE already for Christmas! This is a real treat to see, and I wish I were 4 inches tall to take a spin in this incredible Santa ride! Those gears just make this so unique, and your crackle is downright fabulous! Big round of applause on this ornament! Thank you so much for joining our It's Ornamental Challenge at Anything But Cute! Hugs! Sara Emily DT
