Marianne Design Divas..."Winter Blues"

My second post for the day - see below for my Gingersnaps DT contribution.

Today sees a new monthly challenge over at Marianne Design Divas and this month our challenge leader, Amy has asked to see craft based on the "Winter Blues"

I have gone literally and chosen a "winter" scene - I have painted a box with a mixture of light and dark blue acrylic paints, using a crackle medium so the dark blue shows through.

Marianne Design Products Used:-
Creatables Leaves LR0192,  Creatables Sign Post LR0191,  Creatables Floral LR0107,  Creatables Lace Border LR0201,  Eline's Pretty Pastel Paper Bloc, Vintage Image

The top of the box is a separate canvas which I have decorated with various Marianne Design products.  I have added "frost" using antique micro beads.
A close up of the crackle effect!
I hope you can play along with Marianne Design Divas as there are two fabulous prizes on offer from:-  Bunny Zoe Crafts and Marianne Design themselves.

I am entering my box into the following challenges

Make it Monday - always anything goes

Crafty Emmas - "lots of layers"
There are lots of layers of paint I can vouch for (as I went wrong) and my top canvas has been layered with paint, paper, die cuts and macro beads.
