Old Jigsaw puzzle and some multi-media snowflakes

Hi Friends , this is my second project for Lessology toy story challenge . I have used some old jigsaw puzzles with a lot of pieces missing to recycle for this project.

First I tried making the snowflakes in pristine white with some real snow effect using thermacol which you can see in these pics. It looked nice but I was not entirely happy with the effect so more layers were added. I would like to share a tip  here...... it you want to try using thermacol/ styrofoam, add talcum powder to the grater, your hands and the container to cut the static.

I have used
rhine stones , ribbon, quilling paper in red, some snowflakes in white, a beautiful rhinestone ornament received from Deb to embellish this. used gesso, acrylic colors, tissue paper and thermacol/ styrofoam layers to create this.

I am not so good at making a bow so used paper quilling strips in red, curled them and used on top of the wreath. Punched a hole and added a ribbon to hang this.
