My First DT Post For Altered Eclectics

This is my first DT post for the Altered Eclectics challenge and I've made a Christmas Door Hanger. The challenge is Always Anything Goes As Long As It's Not A Card.

I found a plastic door hanger in a charity shop, it had a cute design on it. I started by giving it a couple of coats of gesso and then painted it blue.

I then stencilled some snowflakes with modelling paste and when the paste dried I gave it a wash of mermaid Fresco Finish paint and then I dry brushed it with snowflake Fresco Finish paint.

I put some stickles over the snowflakes and painted DecoArt Media Crackle Glaze over all the hanger when the stickles had dried, then I edged it with black soot
I die cut a Sizzix snowman and covered it with the crackle glaze, then I die cut the two Sizzix deer out of one of my monoprints and stamped some script on them, I also put some crackle glaze on them. I used a Spellbinder die and white card for the poinsettia and leaves and I covered them with red and green stickles. I glued everything to the hanger together with some silver cord, silver beads and die cut letters.

This is a close up of the crackle.
