ABAA - Window Challange

This is my entry for the ABAA Window challenge.

As a child I always looked forward to the annual visit at this time of year to see Fenwicks Windows. Fenwicks is a deptartment store in Newcastle town centre, and for years people have visited just to see the amazing window displays that tell a story as you move from one window to the next.
As I got older I took my own children to see them.
I always thought they were great. However now they are sadly not at the top of my list for festive windows, Im afraid that award has to go to my favourite place Disneyland.
The colours are magnificent, the models out of this world and to make it even better every few moments little bells tinkle and it snows down from the roof tops in Main Street. Truly Magical............

I wanted to make my window with the Disney windows in mind.
I used a window frame from Artchix , I then rubbed it with Rub and Buff using colours, Amethyst, Pearl Blue and Gold Leaf.

I added some passport size Disney photos that I took myself, and their logo. Mounted the whole thing on Purple Sparkle Card, and then added some Flower soft snow.

Its nowhere near the real thing and I would love to be back there now , bet its cold but magical, but it reminds me of my visit all the same.

Thanks for looking.
