Such a fun process and I tried some new technique –
for me, anyway.
The beautiful background color was done with
Prima’s Color Bloom Spray Mists.
Yummy color with plenty of oomph and sparkle.
The sparkle was a surprise,
I had no idea the sprays were going to do that.
I love it!
Then I tangled my snowflake over the top of
that yumminess with a Sharpie fine point.
I’ve seen some discussion on Facebook today
about using microns over inks and paints.
(I used to use a micron all the time – with no problem.
I just found I was too heavy handed and wore the nibs out
before I ran out of ink.
Sandy Bartholomew mentioned the Sharpie fine point
somewhere and I’ve been using them ever since.)
Then I took two Derwent Inktense Watercolor pencils
to add all the shading, with the assistance of an
Love how it turned out! The overall snowflake is
about 4″ x 5″.
Time to go order a few more of those wonderful
Color Bloom Spray Mists.
I see a new favorite product on my countertop!
