A wintery Harmonie LO

My first blog post for Harmonie:
And Harmonie has some beautiful collections, just for that occasion. Noel and Blizzard are both perfect for cold weather. This is my first official blog post, and I wanted to share a layout with you using mostly Blizzard. I'm really loving working with the gorgeous Harmonie papers and products! Especially since I was born in Russia, where the weather is somewhat similar to Canadian weather. So this is a pic of me as a baby :)

- I love to mix collections, so I used paper from Blizzard and Noel: Verger de Glace, Petits Reners, Firmament
- white pom pom ribbon RU067 - I actually cut off the pom poms to decorate the centers of the snowflakes - they look like little snowballs
- Blizzard stamps set - #52036
- Alphabet stickers are the white peel offs
- Nesting scalloped circles chipboard pre-cut shapes - I used one of the smaller circles behind the center snowflake on the top left, to give it more pop - I colored with with white crackle paint for a more wintery feel

I loved the strong blue of the die-cut paper, so to emphasize it, I painted the top left corner with white acrrylic paint (just dry brushed it on). This made the right corner stand out even more and call attention to the color. I decorated the tree at the bottom with rhinestones and a hanging lamp.
