Frosted Winter

Welcome to the latest  Digi Choosday Challenge,  which as always is ANYTHING GOES.  For our DT projects this week, we were asked to use Spots/Stripes.

I have wanted to transform some coasters for a while, and I found some plain wooden ones at B & M, which I thought would be perfect.

Whilst browsing my images, I noticed that some of the papers from Octavia Frosted Winter had stripes on them, so I picked a couple out and merged with the pre-coloured images from this collection along with sentiments.

Once printed, I glued to the coasters and left to dry for a couple of hours.  When they were fully dried I cut close to the edges then sanded them smooth.

I sprayed them with two coats of sparkle varnish to seal.
