DCWV-Faber Castell Winter Blog hop!!!

Hello Everyone!!!

Welcome to DCWV-Faber Castell Winter Blog hop!


This week we( DCWV DT) have teamed up with Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft®for a joint Blog hop.

I have a Chalkboard Countdown calender to share with you all....

Chalkboard calender is super fun for my girls as they get write the countdown every morning!!
I took a wood block and applied FB- Gesso all over it.  Then added FB- Black Chalkboard paint to the front.
I used beautiful paper from DCWV- Candy Lane Christmas collection, it works perfectly with black chalkboard paint.
I also added silver details to the tree using FB-Silver metallic pen.
Finally applied FB-glaze over the paper for nice shine.
I embellished the project with Snowflake Diecuts and DCWV Mirrored Stars.

This project is for the following challenges...
Crafting for all Seasons - Anything Christmas but a card.
Decorate to Celebrate - Anything Goes 3-D
