I'm Vicki O'Dell, The Creative Goddess - A happy go lucky, ultra busy craft designer, writer, educator, and presenter. I am always on the go, talking, laughing and having a great time.
As a professional crafter I've created for craft industry catalogs, retail advertising, store displays, trade websites and blogs. My work has been on television for DIY, HGTV, and Public Television. I have also done video work for Office Max, The Ohio Lottery and others.
My writing can be found in various craft blogs, including more than 500 posts on my own Creative Goddess blog. I've also written for retail ads, catalogs, project sheets, instructions for the DIY Network website and e-books. I have an active teaching schedule for both private and public clients with classes in floral design, paper crafts, jewelry making, scrapbooking, faux foods and mixed media.
I'm also a presenter who has demonstrated numerous products in person, on video and on television.
I love experimenting with new techniques and teaching others what I learn. I'm constantly on the look out for something new. I can't help it; I want to do it ALL!
1. Cut the background paper to the size of the opening of your frame. Each section of my window was 10.5" by 10.5". Back the paper with chipboard, cardboard (cereal boxes are a good item to recycle here) or the backing that comes with the frame. Adhere the background paper to the backing with the Glue Arts Glue Glider Pro ExtremeTac or Perma Tac.
2. Download the silhouettes from The Creative Goddess blog or create silhouettes of your own children to turn this into a scrapbook project. Cut silhouettes using small, sharp scissors. The better the scissors the better the finished project will look.
3. Check for placement of the silhouettes before adhering them to the background paper. One of the things I really like about the Glue Arts products is that if you notice right away that something isn't placed quite right you can carefully peel it off and try again. I even put the adhesive on the wrong side of one of the silhouettes and was able to peel it off the background paper and gently rub the adhesive off and still be able to use the silhouette.
4. Also keep in mind that silhouettes are TRADITIONALLY black but feel free to experiment with other colors too. I think I'd like to try this project again with a medium blue silhouette.
5. I used Glue Arts Glue Glider Pro ExtremeTac just inside the edges of the wood to hold the silhouettes and background paper in place.
8. The micro adhesive squares adhere the white layer of the snowflake to the blue layer and then the letters S N O W to the front of the snowflakes.
Place the snowflakes where they are pleasing to you and adhere them to the background with the Extreme Adhesive Squares.
