Good morning all, Sunday morning so we've got another challenge at PanPastel UK for you. This week our theme is 'Frosty and Bright' and I've combined PanPastels with the fabby new Maimeri mediums available from Your Creativity Store. Apologies in advance for the decidedly dodgy photos, we don't seem to have seen daylight for weeks lol.
I've layered up assorted die cuts on my canvas, using Maimeri Matt gel to adhere them and then giving the whole thing s coat of Maimeri gesso. Once dry, i've used while, ultramarine blue and tint and some Raw Umber for a little shaddow. To add more texture I've used a couple of Crafters Workshop templates, the snowflake frame with Maimeri modelling paste and the mini mosaic with Maimeri iridescent medium (love love love this stuff!!!) Next came lots of rock candy glitter, faus pearls and some red acrylic paint applied in dots with the end of a paint brush.
I stamped the focal image, Stampendous 'Snow Bird' on to the canvas with sepia versafine and also on some water colour paper. I coloured the image with distress markers and then cut out the bird and berries and popped them on to the canvas. I added white glue and glamour dust for some frosty sparkle
The sentiment is a clarity stamp, stamped on tissue paper and applied with more Maimeri Matt Gel
