12 Days Of Christmas Challenge: Day 2 - Snow

Hello lovelies. How are you all? 

Its day 2 of the 12 Days Of Christmas Challenge and today's theme is snow. To be honest I'm not a fan of snow, I am not a lover of the cold. However snow is very pretty when I am looking at it from the warmth, so I had soo many ideas for this theme.

I finally settled on this idea though..

I started by doing a gradient using Barry M - Blue Moon, an unnamed blue Color Club and Barielle - Surf's Up. You can't see a massive difference between the Barry M and the Color Club, but I quite like the subtle look.

I added a coat of Barry M - Diamond Glitter for a little extra sparkle.

I freehanded the snowflakes using my White Color Club and a detail brush.

I really loved how these came out, they are so wintry and pretty. This kind of snow I do like!

Have you done any wintry designs yet this year? 

Thanks for looking.


  1. That gradient is so pretty and you did a fantastic job with the snow flakes.

  2. Love these! I like the colours you've used and how your snowflakes look a bit icy and spiky-fab =D

  3. I love the gradient, its subtle but you can definitely see its there! And the freehand snowflakes are fab :)

  4. Wow those are some impressive freehand snowflakes! I can only hope mine turn out half as good :)

  5. These are so great! I almost get chills looking at them. :) I also am not a lover of the cold, which stinks because it's been below zero here for a week!

    1. Aww thanks so much! Haha, yeah I hate winter weather, I need to move somewhere sunny.
