My canvas is 5" x 7" in which I covered with white gesso, applied some white tissue wrap and then torn some off. Next I applied a coat of Mod Podge to the canvas and more torn white tissue and some fine netting. Let this dry and applied another coat of white gesso.
Once dried I gave a spray of Dylusions, London Blue and pounced with a wet baby wipe and also edged with the now blue baby wipe. Let this dry, I then spackled on a couple of snow flakes using Dylusions stencil, lifted the stencil off and then spread a thin layer here and there. Added some Tea Stain and Pearl Fragments. Once dried, I covered with Mod Podge and added different glitters, including some glass glitter. Used one of Tim's music stamps and embossing in gold, here and there. Pretty much that was the background. What took the longest with the background was waiting in between for the layers to dry and I really got pretty excited about adding bits and pieces more!
|Just kept adding glitter, etc!|
The Snowman was cut from grunge paper and chipboard. I cut an extra hat and nose, his scarf and hatband were cut from the dry baby wipe. I gave a quick outline as to where the hat and nose would be placed, as to keep the texture paste off, for a smooth fit. Once I applied my texture paste and it dried, I coated it with white gesso and while wet applied some glitter. From there I applied Mod Podge and more glitter, until I was happy! Any clear drying medium can be used. Between the layers of gesso, Mod Podge, tissue, etc., you can have some messy edges and that is where Tim's little awesome hammer comes into play. I like smooth edges.
