I kept with a Christmas theme with my little cozy room, but you can do anything you fancy!
I love these little art rooms from Tando as they are so versatile, although this is my first I'm sure there will be many more.
First I made up the room
While this was drying I asked my OH to find me some Victorian style paper for the back wall. I also requested that he add a fire place with mantel and a picture above. The picture is one of our wedding in Landale with Pikes in the background. He found an old frame for it too.
I painted the brickwork as I wanted to create a London Stock brickwork but I didn't like the colour so changed it back to off white. At this stage I didn't really know where I was going with it and with Hindsight it probably would look better red with the finished creation.
I used grunge paste on the floor and fashioned it to look like old floor boards. I painted it with Burnt and Raw Umber, then used a gloss vanish.
I added some broken plant branches as fire wood and a piece of hessian for the mat. The garland on the mantle was some fresh leaves of one our conifers with some clay balls painted red. I sprinkled some glamour dust too for that Christmas sparkle.
The snow is from DecoArt, the tree a Tim Holtz. I used some hessian for its base and some ribbon from my stash. The clock is from Kaiser Crafts.To add that warmth you can see in the first picture I cut a tealight into 4,and tucked it away in the left corner.
Here is a video with a show around
I hope I have inspired you to enter the challenge, take care and I'll see you soon hugs Debs xx
