Hi everyone!
I hope you are well. Today for my first creation of the month I made a winter layout. I hate the winter and the cold but I love making creations with flakes, snow, fir trees…. For this layout I used the beautiful Vintage Artistry Everyday collection.

I put a layer of clear gesso all over the background paper. Then I made silhouettes of trees with a stencil, Distress Oxide Rustic Wilderness ink and a sponge, I sprayed a little water to give a watercolor effect. I spread a little white gesso with a spatula to make a snow effect, much like on the background paper. I stamped with gray permanent ink and Rations Stamps Set all over the place.

On the fir chipboards I put a layer of white gesso and I rubbed in places the pad of Distress Oxide the same as I used for the silhouettes of fir trees, I sprayed a little water to make oxidize the ink, resulting in the effect of multiple colors.

Under my photo I put pieces of ephemera, a piece of paper that comes from the 6×6 Vintage Artistry Sky pad, I really like the 6×6 pads to put under the photos and to cut out smaller patterns and a piece of paper on the back of the 12×12 cover paper it didn’t stand out enough under the photo so I stamped with green ink and Ticket Express Stamp Set.

I cut some deer with a cutting die in a white cardboard, I colored them with Liquid acrylic Ocher diluted with a little water. I made the composition with white flowers that I colored with the same Liquid acrylic, large branches, flower stems, slices of logs, tree branches and chipboards.
I made snow all over the trees, branches, flowers, on the bottom of the page … with texture paste whit marble particles, I added Crushed ice effect paste on top. which makes an ice effect, I love it! I also made flakes with this same paste at the top of the page. I glued some resin flakes.

I finished with lots of white drops to give the effect of falling snow.
