Advent, 4th December.

Here we are a few days into December and I forgot to show you  this Advent Calender.

It was quite easy to assemble from the Tando Kit.
The biggest problem was working out how the attach the pointer and get it to move freely.

The whole shape was painted with acrylics before I added  paper insets using  Graphics 45 papers.
Antique gold embossing powder, bronze distress stains and  vintage photo distress glitter were my additional way to add aging.
Some of the little additions came with the kit and only needed painting etc. I had the silver charms in my stash.

Thank you for stopping by, especially when we are all so busy at this time of year.
