Ice Magic | Ali Skifton

Hello my friends! It’s Ali here with you today sharing a very wintery picture of my husband and me visiting an ice castle. We had to walk through an ice tunnel to leave and a beautiful rainbow was above our heads.

As soon as I saw the new cut files released by Gwen, I knew I had to work with the Rainbow Burst Background cut file for this photo.

I started backing the rainbow first with colors to match the ice rainbow. I decided then to have some fun and make the stars into shakers. I used a sticker package to back the stars and then cut some foam tape into very thins strips. You have to make sure that there are no gaps in the tape when you are creating shakers. I filled the stars with colored beads to match the colored papers backing them up.

This layout needed a topper and I created this border by sewing it on top. It is not that noticeable because I did use white thread to stick with the ice theme. To make it pop I added the rainbow colored bling to the scallops and used foam tape to adhere it.

To complete the Ice Magic layout I added white paint splats to the ice blue background. I also added some white and silver snowflakes to give the rainbow more of a wintery scene.

Thanks for looking my creative friends!

Love, Ali xo
