altered advent calendar

Hi all
I have been trying some new things out and here is one of them ...it is an advent calendar ...the die cut chipboard frame is from tando creations and I have sprayed it with cosmic shimmer glimmer mists in Lave Red and covered the rest with docrafts paper from my stash last xmas.The calendar hands/snowflakes and holly chipboard die cuts all came with the kit...It was easy to do and I enjoyed making it .... A lovely project for the kids to have a go at in their summer hols.
