How to Build a Snowman
I finally finished it! This was a layout I started at the Asilomar retreat. The photos are from my friend L -- I started by getting paper from her stash and started to play. But I really wanted to do something with glitter and chipboard on it, so I brought it home to work on. I have been doing a little bit, letting it sit out, working on it again etc.
The chipboard is painted with MM paints. On the swirls, I painted a base coat with pink, and them made a wash of a dark pink and the glitter specialty paint. It took a while, but it was fun to paint. The letters are painted in white, and then painted over with a mix of the white and lots of the glitter paint. I dabbed it on with the foam brush so in real life it looks like snow.
I wish I saw the snow more. It is so fun to do snow layouts. Thanks for letting me do yours L!
