Paper Nest Dolls Inspiration Post:
"Peppermint Princess Ellie"
Hello everyone! It's time for my inspiration post for The Paper Nest Dolls! For my project today, I used "Peppermint Princess Ellie" and made her into a shadow box. It was a lot of fussy cutting, but I love how it came together and I hope you do, too!
I colored the image with my copics as usual (colors will be listed below). The shadow box was made using the "Christmas Shadow Box" Project Kit from La-La Land Crafts! The patterned paper I used is by Lawn Fawn from their 2014 "Snow Day" collection, which sadly is no longer available. I made the snow look with Deco Art "Snow Tex" and adhered it with Ranger Multi Medium. The glimmer on the trees was done with some Smooch Ink. The Ivy and holly berries was done using Wink of Stella Glitter Brush Pens, which are my absolute favorite glitter! The snowflake border is a Cottage Cutz die called "Winter Frost Border".
