This is a picture of my friend's daughter at her first winter in the snow skiing. She loved skiing and being the in the snow, but hated getting all bundled up and the first thing she did when she got back to the house was to take snow gear off.
I created this page using the wonderful Robin's Nest Papers and Dew Drops, ULD snowflakes, and Imagination Crafts mediums.
I started out painting all the chipboard snowflakes from ULD in white acrylic paint, the ones that were clear or already a white plastic I left alone. I then let the paint dry.
I then took some of the painted snowflakes and added in some Mica Powder from Imagination Crafts in white or a blend of white, brown, and blue to create a blue to match the papers. I used a dry paint brush to apply the Mica Powder to the snowflakes that were pressed into Ranger perfect medium to the powder would stick to the snowflake. This gave them a nice shimmer and shine.
For some of the other snowflakes including the white plastic ones I used the Sparkle Medium in Winter Snow, Canadian Blue, and Silver from Imagination Crafts. I just used my finger to dab a bit of the glitter medium to the snowflakes in the various color to make then all pretty and sparkly!
I used the wonderful papers from The Robin's Nest to make this wonderful snowy layout. The Winter Collection is just perfect for these snowy layouts. I layered all the below papers as they go together so wonderfully!
The winter words are just a wonderful for any title and the Winter Snowflake Chipboard is just the perfect touch to this snow filled project. I just used the silver snowflakes, but the pack comes with different colors.
I added in the Pearl colored Dew Drops on top of some of the snowflakes to add in a fun dimension, it almost made it look like dew resting on the snowflakes. So pretty!
Time to get out those snow pictures, dusty them off, and make some beautiful snowy pages!!
