Winter Tufted Titmouse DIY Mixed Media Layout with Christmas Cheer Scraps of Elegance Kit

I am awed by our Lord's creation. My sweet friend, Sandee Setliff, took this amazing photo and has graciously granted permission for me to create with it. This little tufted titmouse is taking in the snow while clasping a seed in her mouth. Such a serene and beautiful photo capturing the essence of winter.

FTC Disclosure: I am currently working as a freelance designer for Scraps of Elegance. While I am compensated in product, I maintain the freedom as an independent designer to say what I truly think of these products and will not recommend something that I don’t personally use and enjoy.

I've seen several mixed media pieces recently with layered stenciling that caught my eye. I thought I'd give it a try on this layout and simply adore the effect. You can see how in this process video tutorial along with how I achieved the wintry texture on the chipboard.
