You know how I love scenes and stuff, and sometimes you just don't have the die you really want, so I made my own....well, I didn't make and die, but I made my wheel..
I labeled this picture in case I saw it and wondered why I took a picture, I tell you, sometimes the lights are on but no one is home..
So chose my wheel size and put two dies together..sort of like a frame.
Cut the first one,
then a second one smaller for the wheel center,..
then I cut strips roughly the same size for the spokes.
glued them to the center bit..
flipped and coloured with my markers, chisel end, so much quicker..
then lined up the die cut rim...
Glued it down and trimmed the ends off...DONE!
I had a wagon wheel..
using my Nuvo stone drops I added..
another load of die cutting to make a scene, sort of..
The first thing I did was splatter the light grey card
in the background with white paint..ink.
Then decided where my bits would go.
The lantern needed a touch up...
so added some fir tree fronds..
Placed the trees at the back nestled in the snow..
The wagon wheel lodged in the snow too, along with the lantern with added berries..
the popped a little robin on top of the wheel..
Trying to think and place a sentiment..
and after a thousand try's, I went white, simple and rectangle!!
But I love my wheel, what do you think, looks pretty cool doesn't it..
Thank you so much for stopping by,
I'll see you tomorrow..
