Christmas Gift idea by Kerstin

Hello creative friends!

I was inspired to create a home decoration piece in vintage style. 
It is meant to remind of the magic of Christmas.

I've used the
I think it looks like a fairy tale castle too.

 I used DecoArt Weathered Wood crackle medium first, afterwards drying white DecoArt Gesso in different thicknesses. and at the end Distress Spray Stain 'Vintage photo' (Ranger).

I've also used one from our latest beautiful street lamps wood shapes. 

 I have a soft spot for beautiful vintage iron lanterns so I tried my own design for the shop.
 That was only possible with the help of Helen,
the owner of Calico Craft Parts.
Many many thanks!!!

Decoarted with Glamour Dust and Snow Writer (DecoArt)

Even though we've only had a green Christmas in the last years, 
every year we still (or even more) wish for at least a few snowflakes
dancing quietly from the sky

Calico Craft Parts used:


 Gothic Mansion / Cathedral

Merry Christmas all over the world!

  1. Kerstin, this is superb. What a brilliant idea to use the gothic castle and transform it in this way. This is an inspired and lovely piece of work. xx

  2. Love love love - all of it! Your own design lanterns are just magical and you have definitely put them to use in your own magically beautiful style, Kerstin! I am also reminded of the magical story of Narnia and just looking at your pieces really makes me feel all winter and Christmassy inside.

    Wishing you a merry Christmas, my wonderful friend!
