Working on Snow

1 Comment
 No, it isn’t snowing here in Florida.
At least, not that I know of. Hahaha!
That could be a little but of wishful thinking
on my part!
So, I’ve been playing with snowflake making
for an art journal prompt,
part of a group project I’m involved in for 2015.
I really love how this one turned out,
but then you know I’m all about that color, that color!

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

aquash waterbrush.

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!
