Life is a journey of the soul!

Good morning Crafty Friends,
This post was fun for me.  I used some old items in new ways. 
I used the frame piece and the saying “ Life is a journey of the soul” and the snowboarder from Southern Ridge Trading Company.  Check them out at #southernridgetradingcompany. 
I painted them first with a white paint and let them dry.  I then found some really old mica flakes in a mason jar that had been my grandma’s (at least 50 plus years old and she was the original crafter, lol) and some small broken glass pieces. 
I started my first layer at the top the snowboard and worked my way down creating layers to look like snow shooting off the board as it slices through the snow.  I covered the snowboarder’s body in mod podge and took the broken glass pieces and sprinkled them all over to cover and look like he had been covered in snow on his way down the mountain.  This piece was very heavy and loaded with modge podge so it took a while to dry.  I took an additional title to complete my page and colored it the same way.  I then covered the saying with clear matte finish.

While all pieces were drying I cut and mated my photo and papers. I adhered the two chipboard pieces with strong liquid glue and pop dotted the matted photo it to add dimension and put it all together.

The results I think show a fun filled day in the snow!

Thanks and keep crafting,
