Rosettes Out of The Vault for Lisa's Scene

Hello, Lisa Hoel here. January has seen the release of several "Out of the Vault" Sizzix Die Sets from Tim Holtz. These are designs pulled from previous sets that were given a new twist! Our current Funkie Junkie Focus is to see what creative magic we can come up with using them. I was inspired by our current winter weather and landscape to create this piece…

I've always been inspired by the soft and subdued color palette of a snowy winter day. The greys and browns of the leafless trees and sleeping garden are quietly subtle as the snow is sifting down.

I started off by creating a color palette of inky backgrounds to work from. Distress Oxide and Distress sprays combined to give a wonderful wintery look. I also used the new Distress color Scorched Timber products in various ways. I love how it gives a dark punch but isn't as stark as a black would be. 

The base is an Idea-ology Framed Panel. I painted the frame with Scorched Timber and Hickory Smoke Distress Paint. The back panel was covered with one of my inky background papers.

Using the Vault Rosettes Die Set, I created three rosettes to use as part of the layer bases. You can alter the diameter of the rosettes by trimming the die cut sections. I used three sections for each rosette.

You can see my layering process:

A splatter of white paint over the background adds to the "snowy" feel.
