Magnolia's Christmas Advent Day #1


Welcome to the first day of Magnolia's annual Advent Calendar. 
I am very pleased to start of the celebration this year with my altered mini cutting board.


I coloured up Joyful Tilda from the 2012 A Christmas Story collection and placed her on the painted cutting board. 




Some close up pics of the Doo Hickey dies used to decorate


The edges of the board have been embossed with "Frantage" and white gesso 


More detail of Joyful Tilda,


Please leave a comment to be in the running to win a secret prize from Magnolia! 
And keep watching for the rest of Magnolia's DT for their beautiful creations throughout the month.

Thank you for coming to visit and I will be back in a couple of days to let you know who the winner is :) 
Merry Christmas

Hi Kylie, Such a beautiful start to the Advent Calendar, I love this sweet Tilda with her little tray of cookies and coffee. What a pretty cutting board to have hanging in the kitchen. Love it. Hugs Suzi x

Laura said...

What a great project! I'm so blown away when talented artists think outside the box and use such things as cutting boards for projects. My mind just does not work that way. I love how colorful this is and you have used one of my favorite Tildas. I have used Joyful Tilda on many cards. Thank you for the inspiration!

hugs,
Laura C.
