Winter Wonderland MM canvas

Hiya Crafters,

Its been a long time, since i posted in my blog. Bit busy with Little one's exams and it just got over today and very soon his winter holidays gonna start.

Made this Winter Mixed media canvas taking inspirations from the gorgeous moodboard below, which screams snowy wintery weather :)

Its a 8"x10" stretched canvas which i primed with gesso and started to work on. The snow drippings were made using the hot glue gun and its gessoed again to take up inks.

Central focal image is made using the cinnamon sticks from my potpourri collection. The idea is got from the pic inspiration, with varying lengths of sticks and glued down using hot glue gun on a vellum and added a paper pieced star to it. It was further matted with pps from Papermania Christmas collections.

The textures are made using TCW tile stencil using Finnabair Modelling paste and drywall tape and surrounded it added texture paste clear crackle and used back of spatula to create textures to it,

Used heat gun to dry the paste and sprayed LSG - Azure Sea Asters for those gorgeous shine of blue starting from the glue gun drips.

Added the focal element with Cheerylynn Designs Italin florish diecut, few resin pieces, cabocons, Gold heat embossed IBS sentiment on vellum, and few Cheerylynn designs snowflake diecuts on silver cs around it.

At the bottom of the canvas, added glue generously and added White shiny finish popbeads and to which sprinkled perfect pearls for the shiny snowy bank effect and the same applied on the glue gun drips too for the shine with little water.

Hope you like it!
