Winter by Suzy Loudon

How's everyone going with the winter chill? Well here's a layout that won't be warming you up.


 Before I even knew what I was going to do with this layout I used my Snow White   Colour Paste in a snowflake silicone mould & left to dry until I was ready to do my layout (it was quite a few weeks but a day would be more than enough)


For my paper I tore the edges of my top sheet before sticking it down onto another. To soften it I stuck bits of different laces & cloths in between.
Then using my Snow White  Colour Paste I spread it through a snowflake stencil.


I cut out some chipboard snowflakes with a metal die that I had, then embossed it with Singin The Blues Colour Embossing Powder.


For my chipboard title I first mixed Navy Shimmer Dust with Heavy White Gesso before painting "Winter". I then painted the rest with the White Gesso.


Once it was completely dry I used my Clear Shimmer Brush Marker all over it.


I tore some background paper to mat my photo & played around as to where I could put all my snowflakes.


After I started to stick things down I decided to do some splattering with some watered down Heavy White Gesso (I covered my photo before I did this)


While waiting for my splatters to dry I coloured my flowers.. I used my spray that I made up from Navy  Colour Shimmer Dust. All the blue flowers on my layout are using this spray (although I did dunk a rose or 2 straight into the bottle rather than spraying). I made a few darker than others.


As I was sticking all my elements down I decided my art stones needed more. So I coloured some with the Navy  Colour Shimmer Dust. Waiting till they were fully dry before gluing down.


Here are a few close ups.





Thanks for looking.
Xxx Suzy
