Altered Tilda Christmas tree (5 pictures)



Well I started this project over a week ago. Between making my  Christmas village, my fireplace, christmas banner( which both are not finished yet) I also started on this christmas tree. This was on old rustic Christmas tree that I bought in Quebec a few years ago.   Here is a picture of the rustic tree. It was really hard to decorate as the surface is so flat.  So I began by painting it white and then    adding 2 bottles of glitter.  I then glued the ribbon on the ridges, I added a couple of flowers, used the  marianne's  dies for the trees and the martha stewart punch for snowflakes.  I added some candy canes and  of course Tilda images and this is the final result.
I would like to enter challenge at:

  41. A premium rendition of the classic Air Jordan 12 will be offered this Fall 2016, as it’ll be defined by a deep royal blue colorway.Essentially covering its entire profile, the model also receives a lifestyle upgrade with suede and textured leather comprising its overall makeup. Tonal laces, eyelets and Jumpman-branded panels on the Jordan 12 side are evident, while subtle accents of white and grey via branding along its tongue and heel section round out its notable details.Finished off with a matching full-length rubber sole unit, you can purchase this pair at select Nike and JB stockists nationwide starting November 12th for a retail price tag of $200.Click and bookmark our official Air Jordan 12 Deep Royal Blue launch page now Cheap Jordans For Sale for more images, the latest info and release details.
    Fresh off the release of the iconic BRED colorway, news have now surfaced regarding the return of the Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG Metallic Red for 2017.With the Metallic Navy pair dropping this past June 2016 as well, this forthcoming variation of the silhouette will also be its first retro. The model is essentially a remastered Jordan Eclipse take, as classic Nike Air branding will be applied on the tongue and not feature a Jumpman on the heel.Suggested to make its debut during May 2017 for a price tag of $160, stay tuned to KicksOnFire for more updates.
    What is that, velvet? As a matter of fact, yes, yes it is! What you see above is the first image of a GS colorway Cheap Jordans placed on the Air Jordan 1 High. Said to be a part of the Heiress Collection, the Jordan 1 comes draped in a smooth velvet upper to give the classic model a smooth and lush motif.The shoe comes constructed out of velvet and suede and done in a tonal Maroon/Burgundy colorway. Seeing suede is nothing new on this model, but the star of the Jordans for sale shoe is definitely the use of suede placed certain parts of the upper. Giving the shoe some nice contrast is the Metallic Gold noted on the branding. A White midsole and more Maroon takes care of the outsole. Said to be releasing later on this year, GS footers won’t have to wait much longer to pick up a pair.
    The Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG Jordan Shoes 2016 Bred is making a comeback in 2016. Coming in the uber-popular Bred color scheme, the high-top sneaker comes dressed in a Black and Red motif on the upper constructed out of a full premium leather.
