No, I didn't use the Serendipity technique but after today, I really believe in serendipity. I've had such fun creating today and it all starts with the MIX challenge. But, no, I say, this card isn't for that challenge. This is the final print of the challenge. More on the MIX later (but do refer to that challenge if you have any questions about this card).
I hadn't had time for the collage yesterday and when I made this final Gelli print today, I knew I had my inspiration for that collage and today's WT (use a stencil). I watched Lydia's video (it's awesome, thanks, Lydia) and since I had the Splash inks she used (yes, I did, that is part of the serendipity) I moved forward.
The Dresden was snowflakes, I cut them apart to use part of them. And that vintage tinsel: I don't remember where I got it but I believe it was from my mother's Christmas ornament box. It's very old, really metal, sharp and I felt I wanted something 3D on my creation. I used so much stuff on this project, I'm probably going to have to come back to edit. But I had a blast today, an absolute blast.
This creation makes me think of one of my favorite Christmas albums. It is an old Musical Heritage lp, Christmas at the Cathedral at Reims. French boys and mens choir, awesome organ. Noel, Noel, Noel!

This is totally gorgeous!! The snowflake looks just as wonderful here as on your MIX card. I don't think I've seen silver scraps (Dresden?) before: the dissected snowflakes make great borders. This has, for me, a great Victorian feel. It reminds me of some of the illustrations in an old (1960s) magazine article I have in Victorian cards.
