it took me a while to come up with an idea for this month’s Essentials by Ellen Pin-Sights Challenge – these are the inspiration photos:
since i struggle with shabby chic, i found elements that inspired me: the stone wall, the wrapped gift and the blue/white colour combos. i painted the stones freehand with twinkling H2Os, and also used them to paint the bear, grass and gift. i masked the bear to add the gift, popped him with foam tape and layered him between the die cut grass hills.
fun fact: the spirit bear is actually a black bear but is white.
thanks for popping by.
